You can use the File and

You can use the File and Folder backup method:

This allows you to specify specific data to be backed up - it does not do a volume-level backup. For that reason, this should not be used for DR purposes.

How much data are we talking about here?

You still haven't specificed

You still haven't specificed the amount of data though. 5GB, 100GB ??

It sounds like a lot though so you could see a performance issue. The File and Folder option is not really designed for large amounts of data.

I personally would not recommend the File & Folder option in BESR for this amount of data. I think that you will find the performance an issue.

You should either do a full volume backup with BESR or possibly consider using Backup Exec (BE).
