File-Level Backup

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

With Veeam Agent for Oracle Solaris, 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 (except those subdirectories that you excluded from the backup) and files in these directories.

File-Level Backup 

  • You can include or exclude specific files 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. Files whose names match the specified exclude masks will not be present in the backup.
