The Veeam backup repository is a folder on a storage device that acts as a backup target. The Veeam backup repository is managed by the Veeam backup server.
You have two options:
- Use default backup repository
If you leave the default settings, your backups will be stored in the Veeam backup server. During the installation process, Veeam Backup & Replication sets up the default backup repository on the backup server, on the volume with the most amount of free disk space.
- Configure a dedicated backup repository
If you do not want to store you backups in the Veeam backup sever, add a new repository. A physical or virtual machine that you want to use as a repository must meet system requirements.
