It is recommended that you regularly back up data stored on your computer. Backup creates a safety copy of your data. If any kind of disaster strikes, you can restore your data from the backup and be sure that you will not lose the necessary information.
You can set up Veeam Agent for Linux to perform automatic scheduled backups (triggered at specific time of the day), or you can choose to back up data manually when needed. You can back up the entire computer image, specific computer volumes or individual directories and files.
You can set up Veeam Agent for Linux to create multiple backups — with individual backup scope, upon individual schedule or in different locations. This functionality is available if Veeam Agent for Linux operates in the server mode. To learn more about modes, see Product Functionality Modes.
Backups created with Veeam Agent for Linux can be saved to the following locations:
- Removable storage device
- Local computer drive
- NFS or SMB (CIFS) network shared folder
- Backup repository managed by a Veeam backup server
