To specify compression, deduplication and encryption settings for backup files stored on target backup repository:
- At the Target step of the wizard, click Advanced.
- Click the Storage tab.
- By default, Veeam Backup & Replication performs deduplication before storing copied data on the target backup repository. Deduplication provides a smaller size of the resulting backup file but may reduce the job performance.
You can disable data deduplication. To do this, clear the Enable inline data deduplication check box.
- From the Compression level list, choose a compression level to be used: Auto, None, Dedupe-friendly, Optimal, High or Extreme. The recommended level of compression for backup copy jobs is Auto. In this case, Veeam Backup & Replication uses compression settings of the copied backup files. For more information, see Compression and Deduplication.
- To encrypt the backup file created with the backup copy job, select the Enable backup file encryption check box. From the Password field, select a password that you want to use to encrypt the backup file. If you have not created a password beforehand, click Add or use the Manage passwords link to specify a new password. For more information, see Managing Passwords for Data Encryption.
