Protecting subset of files in Azure RRS feed

  • Question

  • Currently I created a protection group for our file server which just protects the entire drive (E:\) where our file shares all reside. I want to backup to Azure just some of the folders within this E:\ drive. Does that require that I split up the sub folders into different protection groups so I can target the specific folders I need for online protection?

  • Hello Mike!

    If your folders that you want to protect reside under your E-drive, then they will also be protected if you select the whole E-drive, in this case you won't be able to protect the specific folders separately as they are already under protection.

    What you could do instead of protecting the whole E-drive, is to manually select everything except the specific folders, or exclude the specific folders that you want to protect.

    Then create a new protection group and select the specific folders that you want to protect.

    Best regards,
