Managing File Share Data

In this article

    After a backup policy successfully creates a restore point of an Azure file share according to the specified schedule, or after you create a snapshot of a file share manually, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure adds the file share to the resource list on the Protected Data page.

    The Protected Data page displays Azure resources that are already protected by Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure. Each resource is represented with a set of properties, such as:

    • File Share — the name of the Azure file share.
    • Policy — the name of the backup policy that protects the Azure file share.
    • Restore Points — the number of restore points created for the Azure file share.
    • Last Backup — the date and time of the most recent restore point created for the Azure file share.
    • Resource Group — the resource group that stores resources related to the Azure file share.
    • Region — the region in which the Azure file share resides.
    • File-level Recovery URL — a link to the File-Level Restore browser.

    The link appears when Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure starts a restore session to perform file-level recovery. The link contains a public DNS name of the worker instance hosting the File-Level Restore browser and authentication information used to access this worker instance.

    • Tenant ID — the unique identification number of the Azure tenant where the Azure file share belongs.
    • Subscription ID — the unique identification number of the Microsoft Azure subscription that is used to manage costs of the Azure file share.

    On the Protected Data page, you can also perform the following actions:
