Step 7. Choose Backup Destination

In this article

    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.

    Important!

    • 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.
    • If you choose to store the backup on a Veeam Backup & Replication repository, you must pre-configure user access permissions on this backup repository. For details, see section Setting Up User Permissions on Backup Repositories of the Veeam Agent for Mac User Guide.

    There is a misspelling right here:

     

    I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
