Step 8. Specify Shared Folder Settings

The Shared Folder step of the wizard is available if at the Destination step you have chosen to save the backup in a network shared folder.

Specify shared folder settings:

  1. In the Shared folder field, type a name of the network shared folder in which you want to store backup files.
  2. In the Connection account fields, specify domain name and user name and password of the account that has access permissions on this shared folder.

To view the specified password, click and hold the eye icon on the right of the Password field.

  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.
