Step 7. Specify Repository Settings

At the Repository Settings step of the wizard, you can enable encryption for created backups.


Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure uses the same encryption standards as Veeam Backup & Replication to encrypt backup files stored in backup repositories. For more information on Veeam Backup & Replication encryption standards, see the Encryption Standards section of the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.

  1. Select the Enable encryption check box if you want to enable encryption.
  2. In the Password field, enter a new password that you want to use to encrypt data during backup.
  3. In the Repeat password field, re-enter the password.
  4. In the Password hint field, enter a hint that might help you remember the password if you forgot it.

To see the password, click and hold the eye icon on the right-hand side of both the Password and the Repeat password fields.
