User Guide

Step 2. Select Items to Backup

Select the Backup the following items option and click Add to select objects you want to backup.

Selecting Items to Backup

Depending on the organization type, you can combine Users, Groups, Sites, and Organization. When creating a backup job for On-Premises Exchange organizations, you will not be able to add Sites objects, nor you will be able to add Groups objects for On-Premises SharePoint organizations.

Step 2. Select Items to Backup Tip:

You can add objects of different types using the same wizard. For more information, see Adding Objects of Different Types.

By default, when you add a new object, Veeam selects all processing options for this object. To explicitly specify the processing options you need, select an object and click Edit. For more information on available object types and their corresponding processing options, see Understanding Organization Object Types.

For example, you do not want to back up Archive and Site data for Mike Wilde (the user from the figure above). For that, do the following:

  1. Select the user under the Object column.
  2. Click Edit.
  3. Deselect Archive and Site processing options.
  4. Click OK.

Step 2. Select Items to Backup 

Step 2. Select Items to Backup Note:

You cannot edit users with the Public Mailbox type, nor you can edit the Site objects.

Adding Objects of Different Types

To simultaneously add objects of different types, you can use the switch group at the top-right corner of the Add Objects dialog without having to click the Add button each time you need to add a new object of another type.

The figure below demonstrates the Group object view with the corresponding icon selected at the top-right corner. For example, if you want to add Users objects, you can click the corresponding button with the person icon next to the Refresh button to switch to the Users view.

To quickly find necessary items, use the search field at the bottom of the dialog.
