Step 7. Select Backup Destination

The Destination step of the wizard is available if you have selected the Managed by agent option at the Job Mode step of the wizard.

At this step of the wizard, select a target location for backups created by Veeam Agents installed on protected computers.

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

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

Step 7. 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 a 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 a backup on a backup repository managed by the Veeam backup server of which the Veeam Agent backup job is configured. With this option selected, you will pass to the Backup Server step of the wizard.
