Documents Backup Frequency and Automatically Added Checks

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

Where Backup & Recovery options are not present on your N-sight RMM dashboard, this means you will now 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).

An initial backup runs after the installation, then twice per day after that when the device is online:

  • Overnight: between 9pm and 6am
  • During lunch: between 12pm and 2pm

If a backup session is missed due to the device being offline, etc. then the backup will run as soon as possible once the device is back online.

Two Backup & Recovery Checks are automatically added to the device as part of the Backup & Recovery installation process.

  • Windows Service Check - Backup Service Controller (24x7) monitors the Backup Service Controller service
  • Backup Check - Backup & Recovery (Daily Safety Check) reports on the backup sessions

You cannot delete these Checks from the Dashboard, they are only removed when you uninstall Backup & Recovery

In addition to the default Checks, for Windows you can also add a Daily Safety Backup & Recovery Selected Size Check to monitor the backup size of the selected plugins (data sources) based on completed sessions.
