From the Veeam Backup and Replication console click Backup Infrastructure and then right click on Backup Repositories and select Add backup repository to launch the Repository creation wizard.
Select Direct Attached Storage in the first dialog box and Microsoft Windows in the second. Give the backup repository a name and click Next
Select your local server and click Populate to list locally attached available drives. In my case I select
F and select Next
For both the Repository and Mount Server dialog boxes you can accept the defaults and just click Next
On the review dialog box make sure to leave Import existing backups automatically unchecked since we're starting off with a fresh set of backup job. Once you're satisfied everything looks correct click Apply.
