Veeam Backup on Temp Disk

Post by pentana »


Is there a way to stop Veeam using the local disk as temp storage before it writes to your destination?
We have a Server which is installed on local storage, and we have a mapped drive (used as our veeam backup destination) on our FC Filer.
From what I can tell in the job logs the vcbMounter uses C:\blah to do the backups and them streams it to the backup destination.

Is there a way to change this behaviour?

Hello Terry,

Actually, we do not use that TEMP folder for storing files, we use on-the-fly technology, that transmits all the data directly to your destination target. Please have a look at the corresponding thread about that: Temp Directory Cleanup

Thank you
