To help you install Backup Manager and get your backups running quickly and easily, this Getting Started guide is designed to help you get up and running with the basic functionality of Cove Data Protection (Cove).
Since Cove Data Protection (Cove) is a cloud-first data protection platform, it does require the very first backup to be a full backup. This will take longer than future daily backups, where only a fraction of protected data is sent to the cloud. It is recommended to do this in advance whenever possible.
You can use this product to protect physical and virtual servers, workstations, and Microsoft 365 instances.
This is not an all inclusive guide to the Cove Data Protection (Cove) product and so does not cover some additional features. For full information on the product, please see the full backup documentation.
