Restorable Selection 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).

This report provides information on the volume of data backed up for each Backup Account (both active and inactive) during the selected period. Each Device associated with a Backup Account returns the:

  • Per-plugin amount
  • Type (Batch Backup or Archive Batch Backup)
  • End Time
  • Plugin total

Totals are displayed for all devices in the selection with graphs showing the report’s server to workstation and active versus inactive devices composition.

For ease of identification, inactive Backup Accounts (Status = Inactive) are associated with the device the backup last ran on.

The Report is updated multiple times per day and backup data is only available for plugins configured on the device.
