Creating Folders

In this article

    This section explains how to create a new folder in an S3 Compatible or IBM object storage container.

    Creating Folders Note

    If an object storage uses a self-signed SSL certificate, you must add this certificate to the trusted root of the server that runs Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 REST API service. Otherwise, this method will not work.
