Step 9. Specify Data Locations
The Data Locations step of the wizard is available if you have selected to configure installation settings manually.
You can specify where the write cache and indexing data must be stored.
- [For VMware environments] In the Instant recovery write cache section, specify a path to the IR cache folder. The IR cache folder stores the write cache for machines that are started from backups during recovery verification or restore operations. Make sure that you have at least 10 GB of free disk space to store the write cache.
By default, the setup wizard creates the IR cache folder on a volume with the maximum amount of free space, for example, C:\ProgramData\Veeam\Backup\IRCache.
You do not need to configure this data location for Microsoft Hyper-V environments.
- In the Guest file system catalog section, specify a path to the folder where index files must be stored.
By default, the setup wizard creates the VBRCatalog folder on a volume with the maximum amount of free space, for example: C:\VBRCatalog.
