Last Published:
Product(s): Backup Exec (20.2)

Features or requirements no longer supported by Backup Exec

Jobs that contain data from the platforms that are no longer supported are not migrated during a product upgrade. Data from unsupported platforms cannot be backed up or restored from existing backup sets. Additionally, some jobs cannot be migrated automatically because the way in which they are set up in Backup Exec has changed. You can recreate those jobs manually.

For more information about the features and the platforms that are no longer supported in this release or will be retired in a future release, see the Backup Exec Software Compatibility List.

  • Exchange 2007 and SharePoint 2007
