Step 9. Specify Data Locations
The Data Locations step is available if you have selected to configure installation settings manually and to install a new instance of the database server.
At this step of the wizard, you can specify the installation folder and where the write cache and indexing data must be stored.
- To change the default installation folder, click Browse next to the Installation path field.
By default, the setup wizard uses the following installation folder: C:\Program Files\Veeam\Backup and Replication.
- To change the path to the folder where index files will be stored, click Browse next to the Guest file system catalog field.
By default, the setup wizard creates the VBRCatalog folder on a volume with the maximum amount of free space, for example: C:\VBRCatalog.
- [For VMware environments] The instant recovery cache folder stores the write cache for machines that are started from backups during recovery verification or restore operations. To change the path to the IR cache folder, click Browse next to the Instant recovery write cache field. 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.
