Creating Backup Repository
If you target the backup job at a local directory, network shared folder or object storage location, you must create a repository before you configure the backup job. To learn more, see the following topics:
- Creating Repository in Local Folder
- Creating Repository in SMB Share
- Creating Repository in Object Storage
A backup repository must be created on a separate volume from a volume whose data you plan to back up.
If you target a backup job at a Veeam backup repository or Veeam Cloud Connect repository, you do not need to create repositories. Before configuring the backup job, you must connect to the Veeam backup server or Veeam Cloud Connect service provider. To learn more, see Connecting to Veeam Backup Server and Connecting to Service Provider.
