How to reduce the backup size

Post by IVCH » Oct 24, 2017 12:28 am

We are using the Veeam backup for a year. We found a lot of the data are the video and sound files. Would we have any way to skip or exclude those files type into the backup task ?

Regards,
Ivan

Yes you can. It is part of the advanced settings (Application button) of application aware image processing:

You could place this data on a separate disk and exclude it from processing.
