File-Level Backup

In this article

    Veeam Agent for Mac copies backed-up data at the file level. The file-level backup captures data of individual folders and files on the machine. You can use the file-level backup to restore files and folders that you have added to the backup scope.

    With Veeam Agent for Mac, you can specify which files and folders to back up:

    • When you back up user profiles, Veeam Agent captures the content of the home folders of all users on your computer. When you recover from such backup, you will be able to restore all user profiles data or restore individual subfolders of home folders and files in these folders.

    File-Level Backup NOTE

    • When you back up user profiles, Veeam Agent does not include guest user account in the backup scope.
    • If Veeam Agent operates in the standalone operation mode, you cannot back up user profiles. You can back up individual folders only. To learn more about operation modes, see Standalone and Managed Operation Modes.

    File-Level Backup 

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

    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 folders that you have selected to back up with files whose names match the specified include masks.
