Creating Storage Consumption Reports

The Storage Consumption reports show statistical information on used space in backup repositories and object storage.

Each report consists of the following fields and shows information per repository.




Shows a description of the report.

Reporting Interval

Shows the time interval for which the report was generated.

License Information

Shows the following:

  • Product name
  • Company name
  • License type
  • License expiration date
  • Support identification number


Shows occupied storage space of all backup repositories added to the scope.

Top 5 Repositories by Storage Usage

Shows top 5 repositories in which data in backups or backup copies occupies the most disk space.

Top 5 Repositories by Growth

Shows top 5 repositories in which the space is occupied most frequently.

Daily Change (GB)

Information is shown per standalone backup repositories and backup repositories that were extended with object storage. For extended backup repositories, Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 shows the following statistical information:

  • Used space that is occupied by cache.
  • Used space that is occupied by data in backups or backup copies that stored in object storage.

Repository Growth (GB)

Consider the following:

  • Repositories that have no statistical information are not included in the report. No information is available when you added a new backup repository. For more information on how to add a new backup repository, see Adding Backup Repositories.

Since nothing has been placed to a backup repository after it was added, no statistical information is available, therefore, this repository is not included in the report.

  • Repositories whose Daily Change and Total Size values are less than 10 MB are not included in the report.

For example, a report is said to be built starting from 09/01/2021 to 09/30/2021 and the period from 09/01/2021 to 09/09/2021 is empty (both the Daily Change and Total Size values are less than 10 MB). In this scenario, such a report will only show statistical information starting from 09/10/2021.
