I’ve been challenged to only backup data files with a specific prefix to all filenames.

Hello friends,

 

Can Veeam perform a file level backup by specific file name prefix?

 

If a file starts with dept1 across all servers, then Backup only those files to repository X.

If a file starts with dept2 across all servers, then Backup only those files to repository Y.

 

Our retention policy require us to keep specific files for a short period of time while other files for a longer period of time.

 

There are several file servers with TBs of data to backup this way.

 

Is this even possible?

 

Any feed backup would be appreciated.

 

Thanks,

 

Derek

Absolutely, create a job with the file shares and setup inclusion masks as described in https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backup/vsphere/file_share_backup_job_files_and_folders.html?ver=100
