Cove Data Protection (Cove) Fortified Copies

Cove Data Protection (Cove) creates immutable backups of all Backup data by default in the form of N-able Cove Fortified Copies. These are a useful measure against all possible known or unknown attacks.

Fortified copies are fully isolated, read-only copies of backup data that cannot be altered, deleted or accessed by users through an interface or any external component such as API.

Copies are made every hour

What's included?

Fortified copies covers all Data sources that are being backed up as part of the backup selection in Backup Manager or via a Profile, or when backing up any Microsoft 365 service via Microsoft 365 protection in the Management Console.


Each copy is retained for 30 days, regardless of any specific data source retention set in a Product.

This is not configurable.

Management of Fortified Copies

Fortified Copies are not exposed to any external components and are managed by our support team. In the unlikely event of a backup copy corruption, Fortified Copies will be used by the support team to resolve the issue.

Please contact N-able support for assistance, providing as much information as you are able about what you wish to restore and the session you wish to restore from.
