I have started to use the CDP Server and currently I'm running backups to my Windows and Linux machines.
I would like to take the backup of my machines and try to restore it from Bare Metal, but I would like to do so at home not at my workplace. How can I take the backups with me?
If I use the boot CD, will it be possible for me to restore directly from an external drive?
This is not possible with CDP Server 2.0. The only way would be to transport the entire CDP Server home.
We have this capability in our CDP 3.0 product. See: Disk Safes.
The new Disk Safe in 3.0:
- Can be Opened and Closed
- Moved from one location to another on a CDP Server
- Copied from one CDP Server to another
- Copied across platforms (Windows and Linux)
- Simple tools like Windows Explorer drag-and-drop, cp, xcopy, ftp, scp, etc. can be used to move Disk Safes
