Hello,

You can use Veeam Agent functionality for that: select the required folder to back up and select to run active full backup every day.

Thank you!

thanks

imagine i have a folder that collect log files on that first day of week LOG1 created , next day LOG2 created and ........ end of week LOG7 has been created .
now i want n 7th day it just get a full backup from LOG7 and don't touch other files .
As you said run active full backup for every day but on 7th day it will be get backup from all log file LOG1.......LOG7. but each day i just want get backup from a full backup (vbk) for that day

In this case, you would need to put these log files into separate folders and run the backup job manually (always selecting the required folder), quite a challenging task. Why don't you want to run incremental backups of these files, they are not changed anyway?

Ok, as an alternative solution, you can create an in-guest OS script that would delete/move already backed up logs to another folder based on Windows Task Scheduler, so that Veeam Agent backup job would pick up only new files. Hope this helps!

No, it seems like using post backup job scripts is the most feasible solution for your requirements.
