Before You Begin

In this article

    Before you configure a file copy job, check the following prerequisites:

    Backup infrastructure components that will take part in the file copying process must be added to the backup infrastructure and properly configured. These include a source and target host or server between which files and folders will be copied.

    Mind the following limitations:

    • File copy is not supported for Unix systems, for example, Solaris, FreeBSD and AIX.
    • Veeam Backup & Replication does not preserve the Access Control List (ACL) settings for copied guest OS folders. The ACL settings are preserved for files only.

    Tip

    You can restore the ACL settings for recovered guest OS files and folders using Instant File-Level Restore.
