    • In the Post-job field, specify a path to the script that should be executed after the backup job completes.

    • In the Pre-freeze field, specify a path to the script that should be executed before Veeam Agent creates a volume snapshot.

    Specifying Path to Script

    You can specify a path to the executable file of the job or snapshot script in one of the following ways:

    1. Type a path to the executable file.
    2. Browse to the executable file:
    1. Select the Browse option with the Tab key and press Enter.
    2. In the Choose script location window, select the directory being a part of the path to the script and press Enter.
    3. Repeat the step 'b' until a path to the directory in which the executable file resides appears in the Current directory field.
    4. Select the necessary executable file and press Enter.

    Alternatively, you can switch to the Ok button and press Enter.
