Back up and restore data

inSync On-premise 5.4 Administrator Guide
On-premise Editions: File:/tick.png Private Cloud File:/tick.png Enterprise File:/tick.png Professional

Overview

As an administrator, you might need to perform the following actions:

  • Remotely start back up on a user device or stop a backup that is in progress. 
  • View snapshots of data that inSync backed up from a device.
  • Delete snapshots because you do not require them. A snapshot is a point in time image of the backup folders, which indicates the state of the backup folders at a particular point of time. 
  • Restore data to user devices if users do not have the permission to restore data themselves.
  • Restore data to inSync Master in scenarios where users did not allow you to download their data. 
  • Stop a restore in progress even if a user initiated the restore.
