File-Level Backup

In this article

    You can set up Veeam Agent for Linux to create file-level backup. The file-level backup captures only data of individual directories and files on the computer. You can use the file-level backup to restore files and directories that you have added to the backup scope.

    With Veeam Agent for Linux, you can specify which files and directories to back up:

    • You can include individual directories in the backup. When you include a directory in the backup, its subdirectories are automatically included in the backup too. When you recover from such backup, you will be able to restore directories that you have selected to back up, all subdirectories of these directories and files in these directories.

    File-Level Backup 

    • You can exclude from the backup some subdirectories of the directories that are included in the backup. When you recover from such backup, you will be able to restore directories that you have selected to back up, specific subdirectories of these directories and files in these directories.

    File-Level Backup 

    • You can include or exclude files of a specific type in/from the backup. You can specify file names explicitly or use UNIX wildcard characters to define include and exclude file name masks. When you recover from such backup, you will be able to restore directories that you have selected to back up with files whose names match the specified include masks.

    I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
