Editing Backup Job Settings

If you want to change settings of the scheduled backup job, you can edit it at any time. For example, you may want to edit the backup job to add a new folder to the backup scope, change the target location or job scheduling settings.

To access backup job settings, do one of the following:

  • Right-click the Veeam Endpoint Backup icon in the system tray and select Backup > Configure backup.
  • From the main menu, select All Programs > Veeam > Tools > Configure Backup or use the Microsoft Windows search to find the Configure Backup option on your computer.
  • Double-click the Veeam Endpoint Backup icon in the system tray or right-click it and select Control Panel. At the top left corner of the Status view, click Configure backup.

Then edit the job settings as required. To learn more about available job settings, see Configuring Scheduled Backup Job.

If you change the target location in the backup job, during the next backup job session Veeam Endpoint Backup will perform full data backup. All subsequent backup sessions will produce incremental backups — Veeam Endpoint Backup will copy only changed data to the target location and add a new incremental backup file to the backup chain.

If you change the backup scope in the backup job, during the next backup job session Veeam Endpoint Backup will create a new incremental backup that will contain a full copy of all data that you have selected to back up.

Editing Backup Job Settings Tip:

Full backup takes much more time than incremental backup. If you change the target location, you can copy an existing backup chain to the new location manually. In this case, the new backup job session will produce an incremental backup file and add it to the backup chain.
