From this dashboard, you will see a specified set of columns detailing information relevant to devices using Restore to Azure, including the status, and data sources, along with other information relating to Azure.

If no devices are using Restore To Azure, the dashboard will display a message to advise.

  1. Search for or use the filters to find the device in question where the recovery is currently running
  2. Select the device
  3. Click Cancel restore from the top bar

  4. Confirm cancellation

From this menu, you can filter by:

Recovery status

  • Failed - The recovery session has failed

  • Completed - The recovery session completed with no errors
