You can use OneDrive Personal or OneDrive for Business.

This ensures we constantly protect our data & this option is useful for those users whose are always on the move.

I'm connecting using my personal outlook account.
If you use OneDrive apps, do remember to exclude "VeeamBackup" folder to avoid sync with your desktop/laptop.

Once connected, set your policy setting.


The backup will run according to schedule. To verify, login to OneDrive and you will notice that your backup data is stored in "OneDrive"
