When you need to perform any kind of restore, you prompted to enter a passphrase to start the process. This is the link/key to the last known backup so it can continue on as if there was no interruption.
The passphrase, or security code, is a unique key required that the backup software uses to connect with the current backup in the cloud to match with the device.
- Click Views > All Devices and click the name of the device.
- Click Settings > Backup Management and click Retrieve Passphrase.
- Record the passphrase, username and password and click OK.
The phassphrase is valid for 24 hours.
N-able Backup connects with the cloud backup. An initial backup check will take place to ensure any new or updated files are saved to the cloud.
