First time post here and looking for some help/advise/clarification. I am running Veeam V8 we have an on site backup for our virtual machines and all working fine. The issue I am looking for help on is that I wish to backup individual files to the cloud, so for instance say I have a VM which is 1TB in size but only want to backup the important files say 100GB of data how can I specify in the backup what I want, and what to exclude?
I have phone Veeam and been told a mixture of things all to no avail. Is what I am looking for possible in Version 8? is it not? will it be something that will get added into Version 9?
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
PS should also mention that I am looking to backup the files to a cloud repository.

Currently there is no way to select individual files in the backup job, the entire VM image needs to be backed up. However, in upcoming version 9 there will be a way to include/exclude individual folders and files from the backup job. This should not be considered as a file-level backup job.
In your case I would recommend using Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE (file-level backup job) for this task.
