Starting Backup Copy Jobs Manually

You can manually start a backup copy job. This procedure differs for the periodic and immediate copy modes. You can find details in the following sections:

Starting Jobs in Immediate Copy Mode

Manual start can be helpful if the backup copy job was disabled for some time and restore points were not copied to the target repository.

To start the backup copy job manually:

  1. Open the Home view.
  2. In the inventory pane, select the Backup Copy node.
  3. In the working area, select the backup copy job and click Sync now on the ribbon or right-click the backup copy job and select Sync now.

Starting Jobs in Periodic Copy Mode

Manual start of the backup copy job can be helpful if a new restore point has already appeared in the source backup repository but the previous backup copy interval has not finished yet.

When you manually start the synchronization process, Veeam Backup & Replication creates a new backup copy interval.

For example, you configure a backup copy job to copy data every 30 days. The backup copy interval starts at 2:00 AM. The manual backup copy interval starts on May 1 at 1:00 PM. The manual backup copy interval will work from 1:00 PM on May 1 till 2:00 AM on May 31. On May 31 at 2:00 AM Veeam Backup & Replication will automatically start a new 30-day backup copy interval.

To start the backup copy job manually:

  1. Open the Home view.
  2. In the inventory pane, select the Backup Copy node under Jobs.
  3. In the working area, select the backup copy job and click Sync now on the ribbon or right-click the backup copy job and select Sync now.
