You can create a virtual drive in your Windows file system to have access to your backup data. You can copy or drag and drop files to a local drive from there.
Use the virtual drive to quickly restore selected files or directories from any backup session.
The Virtual Drive utility relies on the Backup Client installation.
- The Backup Client must be installed prior to the Virtual Drive installation.
- The version of the Virtual Drive must be same as the Backup Client . You will get a warning message in case of version incompatibility.
After the Virtual Drive has been installed, it will be automatically updated with each Backup Client update.
The Virtual Drive is a Windows utility. You can install the Virtual Drive through a set-up wizard or use command-line installation.
When the installation is completed, a new local drive appears in the system, along with the regular "C:", "D:", and "E:" (DVD) drives. The drive is named "B:" unless this letter is already taken. You can specify any other letter using the
InitialVirtualDriveLetterparameter in the configuration file.
Note: Online Backup (Datashield) is a legacy product only available to older Atera accounts. For newer backup solutions, check this page.
