Windows 10 support
Yes, you heard it! Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE is the first solution that fully supports backing up and restoring computers running the newly released Windows 10 – just six days after it went live!

Scheduled backupA scheduled backup is performed automatically according to the job schedule you specified in configure backup wizard: it can consist of a periodic schedule and / or triggers. The first job run will create a full backup, all the following ones are incremental. We like to call it “set it and forget it” option. Restore points will be removed according to the chosen retention and as long as backup destination is up and running the ...
Last year I was tapped to spearhead a new project here at Veeam: launch a global influencer program. This honestly was something I was a bit timid about as I have no experience operating a program like this. I’ve happily been nominated as a VMware vExpert and a Cisco Champion for a number of years. Additionally on my team, Doug Hazelman, Luca Dell’Oca and Clint Wyckoff have been nominated as current and prior vExperts and Mike Resseler as a Microsoft MVP. We feel we have a good background on how these types of programs should operate and now we are happy to publically announce the Veeam Vanguard Program.
The Veeam Vanguard Program is a hand-selected list of people of all ...
Microsoft Windows 10 will hit the market in a couple of days, on the 29th of July. Just like many of you, I have accepted a free upgrade offer from the tray menu popup, since I am very much looking forward to this operating system after having spent the last months as a Windows insider testing its pre-release builds.
Are you as ready to upgrade as myself?
WAIT, install Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE first!
As with any upgrade there is a risk that things go wrong – ...
You need the recovery media
To start with, you must create a recovery media: it’s almost a mandatory for protecting your computer. You may refer to one of my previous blogpost in order to get the clear understanding of how it works. Keep in mind, you can create a new Recovery Media any time you need it by simply launching one of the Endpoint’s ...
One of our most popular enhancements with customers and partners has been the Veeam Explorers that provide high-speed recovery for popular application types. Over the years we have seen critical data center applications, such as Microsoft Active Directory, Exchange, SharePoint and SQL Server, benefit from the incredible ease of use of the Veeam Explorers. Coming later this year, v9 will see Veeam Explorer for Oracle added! Moreover, the existing Veeam Explorers are getting some major new enhancements as well.
Let’s first go over Veeam Explorer for Oracle. Oracle databases have the unique characteristic of being frequently used for the most critical applications that really are the backbone of the modern data center. Veeam Explorer for Oracle delivers the following ...
In our previous post we discussed file-level recoveries. Besides recovering individual files, you also have the ability to recover entire volumes. Note that this only works when you have chosen the Entire PC or the Volume Level Backup methods. When you perform volume-level recovery, Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE restores the entire content of the volume.
Again you have three possibilities (actually four but I’ll come back to that later…) to get to your volume level recoveries. Typing in Veeam in the start menu and selecting Volume Restore, right-click on the tray icon and select Restore – Entire Volumes or directly in the UI select a recovery point and press the restore volumes button.
A volume can be restored ...
It probably has been said ten million times before but it’s worth saying again… Backup always leads to recovery and recovery should be easy. In previous posts we looked at the integration of Veeam Backup & Replication with Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE and already gave you some recovery options that you get with the integration. Today we are going to review the recovery options available for any end user.
Before we dive in to this, keep in mind that recovery options highly rely on the backup mode you used. For example, it not possible to recover the entire computer from your personal files backup.
This option you can choose no matter what backup mode you have selected. Even ...
