Veeam: Backup Files Unavailable

less than 1 minute read


Upon looking at a tape job, you will get a warning like “11 backup files to be excluded from the job because they are unavailable.”

To Resolve:

  1. Rescan the backup repo and try again

  2. Check if the job it depends on is still running.

  3. See if there is a merge taking place if you have synthetic fulls going periodically.

  4. See if the backup repo is doing a health check.

  5. Click Disks => Properties => Verify that the backup points don’t have a red X next to them.
