Step 10. Specify Cloud Backup Settings

The Cloud Repository step of the wizard is available if at the Destination step you have chosen to save backup files on a Veeam Cloud Connect repository.

  1. In the Restore points to keep on disk field, specify the number of restore points you want to keep in the target location. By default, Veeam backup agent keeps 7 latest restore points. After this number is exceeded, Veeam backup agent will remove the earliest restore points from the backup chain.

For details, see section Backup Retention Policy of the Veeam Agent for Mac User Guide.

  1. Click Advanced Settings to specify advanced settings for the backup job.

For details, see Specify Advanced Job Settings.


The policy will target to the default repository specified by your service provider. If you want to store backups on another backup repository, you can choose this repository in backup job settings for specific computers. For details, see Configuring Backup Job Settings for Individual Computers.
