Archiving is a new feature in the CDP server that allows users to safely and easily extract data from their disk safes and store or use that data however they please.
Archiving is very simple and works very similar to doing a normal file restore. Choose which host you want to archive files from, and go to the "Backup and Restore" page. Browse through your disk safe and choose which files you want to archive. You can archive single files, multiple files, or even an entire recovery point! There is a drop down box next to the "Go" button. Select either "Archive Files" or "Download Files as Archive". The difference between these two options will be discussed further down. After clicking the "Go" buton, simply fill out the rest of the information on the page, then archive your files!
There are two options when archiving files. "Archive Files" and "Download Files as Archive".
When choosing this option, you are given many different ways to archive your files. You can choose to give the archiving task a description, and even schedule the task to perform whenever you want. You have the option of using either Tar or Zip file formats, or you can choose to use no compression.
Next you are given the option to decide where to send your archived files. You are given four options, download the files directly to the CDP server or download using a CIFS, FTP, or SFTP. Choose the method you want to use and fill out all information requested. Choose a name for your archived files, and a path to save it at. Then click "Go" and your files will be transferred to the destination you chose.
The "Download Files as Archive" option is very similar to the previous example but much more simple. Most users connect to their CDP server remotely. Lets say you want to download the files to the local computer that you are using to connect to the CDP server with. Download Files as Archive allows you to do this! Just choose your compression type and name and the files will be downloaded straight to your local machine.
Archiving is a very powerful feature that puts you in control of your disk safes. Want to back up your disk safes and recovery points to tape drive and store them offsite? Want to grab a single file out of a disk safe and download it straight to your local machine? Archiving makes all this very easy!
