Step 9. Specify Local Storage Settings

The Local Storage step of the wizard is available if at the Destination step you have chosen to save the backup on a local drive of the computer.

Specify local storage settings:

  1. In the Destination target field, specify a path to the folder where backup files must be stored.

If the folder does not exist, Veeam backup agent will create it during backup.

  1. In the Restore points to keep disk field, specify the number of restore points for which you want to store backup files in the target location. By default, Veeam backup agent keeps backup files created for 7 latest restore points. After this number is exceeded, Veeam Agent for Linux will remove the earliest restore points from the backup chain.
  2. Click Advanced Settings to specify advanced settings for the backup job.

For details, see Specify Advanced Job Settings.


USB storage devices formatted as FAT32 do not allow storing files larger than 4 GB in size. For this reason, it is recommended that you do not use such USB storage devices as a backup target.
