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.

    Before You Begin Tip:

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

    I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
