With version 9.5u4, a new feature has been added to Veeam which is the Export Backup.
The export backup is used to extract (export) files from a backup, a restore point of a virtual machine.
This feature can, for example, make it possible to extract from a backup chain a virtual machine that is deleted but that one wishes to keep to one side.
This makes it possible to export a backup of an application server an old version that one might need for consultation.
Export a backup
It is possible to configure a retention time for an automatic export deletion.
The files are physically located on the repository in a folder with the name of the extraction.
This new feature allows you to keep a backup of a computer at a specific time.
It is now easy to keep a virtual machine or a computer that is no longer running.
