Moving around backup files

Post by digitlman » Jun 27, 2011 5:11 pm

I've been retooling my backup folders today. I have moved the .vbk files into different subfolders.

Now, when I try and change the backup path, Veeam says that it can't find the existing backups (no kidding!) and won't let me change the path.

What's the best way to fix this, other than throwing everything to tape and deleting all existing backups? And not directly editing the SQL db if I can help it ;-)

Strange, as this should work. The ability to change backup destination was added in v4 (backup files need to be moved manually, just like you did). Please open a support case to investigate what happens. May be this functionality got affected by some latest patches or something.

Ok, now it seems to be working. Thought it might be the fact that I am pasting in the location as opposed to Browsing for it; not the case.

Must be having a case of the Mondays.
