Step 4. Select Backup Destination

At the Destination step of the wizard, select a target location for the created backup.

You can store backup files in one of the following locations:

  • Local storage — select this option if you want to save the backup on a removable storage device attached to the computer or on a local computer drive. With this option selected, you will pass to the Local Storage step of the wizard.

Step 4. Select Backup Destination Important!

Consider the following:

  • It is strongly recommended that you store backups in the external location like USB storage device or shared network folder. You can also keep your backup files on the separate non-system local drive.
  • If you select to store the backup on a local folder included in the backup scope, Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows will automatically exclude this folder from the backup.

  • Shared folder — select this option if you want to save the backup in a network shared folder. With this option selected, you will pass to the Shared folder step of the wizard.
  • Veeam backup repository — select this option if you want to save the backup on a backup repository managed by the Veeam backup server. With this option selected, you will pass to the Backup Server step of the wizard.
  • Veeam Cloud Connect repository — select this option if you want to save the backup on a cloud repository exposed to you by the Veeam Cloud Connect service provider. With this option selected, you will pass to the Service Provider step of the wizard.

Step 4. Select Backup Destination Important!

The Veeam Cloud Connect repository option is available in Workstation and Server editions of Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows if the license is installed locally on the protected computer. To learn more, see Licensing.
