The Backup encryption option is unavailable if you have chosen to save backup files on a Veeam backup repository. Encryption options for Veeam Agent backup jobs targeted at the backup repository are managed by a backup administrator working with Veeam Backup & Replication. To learn more about data encryption capabilities available in Veeam Backup & Replication, see the Data Encryption section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.

  1. In the Encryption window, make sure that the Enable backup file encryption option is selected and press Space.
  2. In the Password field, type a password that you want to use for encryption.
  3. In the Hint field, type a hint for the password. In case you lose the password, the specified hint will help you to remember the lost password.
  4. Switch to the Ok button and press Enter.
