Exporting Backups

In this article

    Exporting backups allows you to synthesize a complete and independent full backup file using restore points located in your backup repositories. That is, you can transform any backup chain into a standalone full backup file and save it to the same repository where the selected restore points reside.

    To export a backup, do the following:

    1. In the Veeam Backup & Replication console, open the Home view.
    2. In the inventory pane, select Backups.
    3. In the working area, right-click a VM for which you want to synthesize a full backup file, and select Export Backup.
    4. Complete the New Export wizard as described in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide, section Performing Export.

    Once the export operation completes, the exported backup will be displayed under the Backups > Disk (VeeamZIP) node in the Home view of the Veeam Backup & Replication console.
