Backup Integrity Report

To offer an enhanced solution, standalone Cove Data Protection (Cove) replaced Backup & Recovery. Where Backup & Recovery has been enabled and continues to be so for devices, the options presented here are still available.

If Backup & Recovery options are not present in your N-sight RMM, you need to use Cove.

To start a 30-day free trial of Cove, click the app switcher in the Product bar, and select Cove Data Protection (Cove).

The Backup Integrity Report provides details on the Backup Check state of the monitored backup product.

  • The number of Devices (workstation and server)
  • Monitored device status (failed or passed)
