Getting Started

To protect your computer from a disaster of any kind, you must perform the following operations in Veeam Agent for Mac:

  1. Define what data you want to back up and configure the backup job.

Before you configure the backup job, you should decide on the following backup details:

  • Backup destination: where you want to store your backed-up data.
  • Backup scope: user profiles data or specific folders and files.
  • Backup schedule: how often you want to back up your data.

After that, you can configure one or several backup jobs. The backup job captures the data that you have added to the backup scope and creates a chain of restore points in the target location. If your data gets lost or corrupted, you can restore it from the necessary restore point.

In Veeam Agent, you can configure the backup job in one of the following ways:

  1. Monitor backup job execution.

You can use the session log window in the Veeam Agent control panel to view how backup tasks are being performed, what errors have occurred during the backup job and other session statistics in real time. You can also use Veeam Agent command line interface to get information on backup and restore sessions status and view session logs. To learn more, see Reporting.

  1. In case of a disaster, you can restore your data. You can perform data recovery operations in several ways:
  • You can restore all user profiles data.
  • You can restore individual files and folders.
