With Veeam Backup & Replication you can easily backup and restore content of various NAS file shares. The solution can be flexibly scaled to reliably protect massive amounts of data, even for the largest of enterprise organizations. Today, I am going to show you how to configure it.

  • Keep previously file versions: Specify the number of months or years during which backup files must be retained.
  • Archive repository: Select the storage to be used as a repository to store archived files and folders.
  • File to Archive: By default, all files deleted from the backup repository will be moved to the archive repository. If you do not need all the files in the archive, you can choose what files to keep.

24.On the Secondary Target page, you can specify a secondary repository that will be used to store additional copies of backup files from the backup storage for redundancy. If you add a secondary repository, Veeam Backup & Replication will create a separate job for backup copy to it. The data copy process will start automatically after each primary job runs. Click Add.

25.On the Select Repository page, select a repository as secondary target, click OK.
