Veeam file copy

Does File Copy have any retention or does it just over write the destination files each time the job is run?

Hi Tom,

File copy has no retention and it just copies files as they are (always full), it doesn't track changed blocks.

Thanks!

Thanks. I presume it will just over write a file with an identical name?

Tom, you may set retention (in days) with powershell and windows task manager.
