Step 8. Choose Backup Destination

At the Destination step of the wizard, select a target location for the created backup:

  • Local storage — select this option if you want to save the backup on a removable storage device attached to the endpoint, or on a local drive of the endpoint. With this option selected, you will pass to the Local Storage step of the wizard.
  • Shared folder — select this option if you want to save the backup in a network shared folder. With this option selected, you will pass to the Shared Folder step of the wizard.
  • Veeam Backup & Replication repository — select this option if you want to save the backup on a backup repository managed by a Veeam Backup & Replication server. With this option selected, you will pass to the Backup Server step of the wizard.
  • Cloud Connect Repository — select this option if you want to save the backup on a cloud repository exposed by the Veeam Cloud Connect service provider. With this option selected, you will pass to the Cloud Repository step of the wizard.

Step 8. Choose Backup Destination Important!

  1. It is strongly recommended that you store backups in the external location like USB storage device, shared network folder or in the cloud. You can also keep your backup files on a separate non-system local drive.
  2. If you choose to store the backup on a Veeam Backup & Replication repository, you must pre-configure user access permissions on this backup repository. To learn more, see Setting Up User Permissions on Backup Repositories.
