Step 11. Specify Backup Cache Settings

The Backup Cache step of the wizard is available if you selected the following options at the previous steps of the wizard:

  1. Selected the Managed by agent mode at the Job Mode step of the wizard.
  2. Selected the Veeam backup repository or Veeam Cloud Connect repository option at the Destination step of the wizard.

To specify backup cache settings:

  1. Select the Enable backup cache check box.
  2. In the Maximum size field, specify the size for the backup cache.

When defining the size of the backup cache, assume the following:

  • Each full backup file may consume about 50% of the backed-up data size.
  • Each incremental backup file may consume about 10% of the backed-up data size.
  1. In the Location section, specify where Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows will create the backup cache. You can select from the following options:
  • Automatic selection — select this option if you want to let Veeam Agent pick a location for the backup cache automatically. On every computer added to the backup policy, Veeam Agent will detect a volume with the largest amount of free disk space and create the backup cache in the Veeam Backup Cache folder on this volume. To learn more, see Backup Cache.
  • Manual selection — select this option if you want to specify a location for the backup cache manually. If you select this option, in the Folder field, specify a path to the folder on a protected computer in which backup files must be stored.

There is a misspelling right here:

 

I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
