Increase Backup Speed (Optional)

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).

To take advantage of the best possible backup speed, enable the volume snapshot integration service (also referred to as the volume checkpoint in the newer versions of Hyper-V).

This lets the Backup Manager use the help of native VSS writers during backups to improve backup speeds and reduce the amount of data transmitted to the cloud.

  1. Start the Hyper-V Manager
  2. Right-click the virtual machine you want to back up and choose Settings from the context menu
  3. Go to Management > Integration services
  4. Enable the Backup (volume checkpoint) option (or Backup (volume snapshot) in the older versions of Hyper-V)
