As Veeam Backup for Salesforce stores Salesforce file data and metadata in the same format as they are stored in Salesforce, files can consume significant amount of disk space. The total file size depends on the file retention policy and daily change rate in your organizations. To provide stable operation of the product, consider the following:
- Before you deploy Veeam Backup for Salesforce, create a dedicated partition for file storage and mount this partition to the /opt/vbsf/data/ folder.
- The product deletes backed-up files from its file repository according to the configured retention settings only. That means if you manually delete a file in Salesforce, it will not be automatically deleted from the repository.
