Veeam Backup Files Growth

This report allows you to track how the size of backup files was changing during the specified time period, and identify jobs that consume the greatest amount of space on repositories.

  • The Top 10 Jobs by Largest Backup File Size table shows 10 jobs that produced the greatest amount of backup data during the reporting period.
  • The Details section displays information on repository space usage. For each repository, the report provides a chart that illustrates the repository capacity and the amount of free space left, as well as information about restore points that were created during the reporting period, including VMs and computers in the backup, backup file type, date and time when the file was created, restore point size and total space used.

Use Case

This report is useful for capacity planning purposes. The report allows you to assess historical growth of backup files and — in case backup files grow too fast — to decide whether to change job configuration to point it to another repository with larger capacity.
