Detaching Disk Safes

Detaching a Disk Safe will delete the Disk Safe configuration from this CDP Server. All configured tasks and historical task information will be lost, but the Disk Safe and all backed up data will remain on the disk. In other words, the Disk Safe's folder will be kept.

Note
You can detach only closed (disabled) Disk Safes.
