Attaching Disk Safes

All data necessary for a restore is kept in Disk Safes. On a physical level, a Disk Safe is a folder containing files/folders. You can change a Disk Safe's path by manually copying its folder to the other location. In this case, you need to close the Disk Safe via the CDP Interface, then move/copy the folder to the desired place. Then open the Disk Safe via the CDP Interface.
