Exporting Backups

Exporting backups allows you to synthesize a complete and independent full backup file using restore points located in your backup repositories. That is, you can transform any backup chain into a standalone full backup file and save it to the same repository where the selected restore points reside.

To export a backup, do the following:

  1. In the Veeam Backup & Replication console, open the Home view.
  2. In the inventory pane, select Backups.
  3. In the working area, right-click a VM for which you want to synthesize a full backup file, and select Export Backup.
  4. Complete the New Export wizard as described in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide, section Performing Export.

Once the export operation completes, the exported backup will be displayed under the Backups > Disk (Exported) node in the Home view of the Veeam Backup & Replication console.
