    At the Targets step of the wizard, you can instruct Veeam Backup for GCP to create image-level backups of the selected VM instances:

    1. Set the Enable backups toggle to On.
    2. Click Choose repository.
    3. In the Choose repository window, select a standard backup repository where the created image-level backups will be stored.

    For a standard backup repository to be displayed in the Repository list, it must be added to Veeam Backup for GCP as described in section Adding Backup Repositories. The Repository list shows only backup repositories of the Standard storage class.

    1. To save changes made to the backup policy settings, click Apply.

    You can also enable the backup archiving mechanism to instruct Veeam Backup for GCP to store backed-up data in a low-cost, long-term archive storage:

    1. Select the Enable backup archiving check box.
    2. Click Choose repository.
    3. In the Choose repository window, select an archive backup repository where the archived data will be stored.

    For an archive backup repository to be displayed in the Repository list, it must be added to Veeam Backup for GCP as described in section Adding Backup Repositories. The Repository list shows only backup repositories of the Archive storage class.

    1. To save changes made to the backup policy settings, click Apply.
