Auto-Configuring Scheduled Backup Jobs

After the product installation, you can instruct Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows to auto-configure the scheduled backup job with the default settings. The backup job will have the following settings:

  • Backup scope: entire computer
  • Target destination: USB drive connected to the computer
  • Schedule: 12:30 AM nightly

That is, the scheduled backup job will run regularly to create an entire computer backup at 12:30 AM and save this backup on the USB drive.

To auto-configure the scheduled backup job:

  1. At the Insert backup target now step of the setup wizard, make sure that the Skip this, I will configure backup later check box is not selected.
  2. Insert a USB drive to a USB slot on your computer.
  3. Follow the steps of the installation wizard. At the last step of the wizard, click Finish.


Auto-Configuring Scheduled Backup Job IMPORTANT

USB storage devices formatted as FAT32 do not allow storing files larger than 4 GB in size. For this reason, we recommend that you do not use such USB storage devices as a backup target.
