Backup Manager GUI

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).

Backup Manager is the interface used to manage the backups on the device, where you can configure additional data sources, initiate backups in the Professional edition and perform restores on any server or workstations where Backup & Recovery is active.
