Copy to multiple external disks (not connected at same time)

Post by xayide » Aug 01, 2018 9:36 pm

Is it possible to setup veeam to copy files from the windows OS to external disks (disks not connected all att once, has to be exchanged).
Lets say we have a folder on windows with 5 TB that I want to backup to 5 disks with 1 TB each. I have only one disk connected at once since there is only one USB. Is this possible so that veeam waits for me to insert next disk when first is full?

Hello xayide.

No, unfortunately there is no way to chunk backup file into pieces.You should either split the source item into multiple items (1TB each), or, in theory you can create a dynamic volume from removable disks (but that would require to keep all the disks connected simultaneously). Thanks!
