Running a backup from the Agent

There are three ways that your data can be backed up to Endpoint Cloud:

  1. Endpoint Cloud backs up your activated devices automatically, at the intervals defined in the Policies for your devices (see Schedule the Automatic Backups).
  2. You can start a manual backup remotely from Endpoint Cloud (see Run a Remote Backup from Endpoint Cloud).
  3. You can start a manual backup from a local, activated device (see below). 

Each activated device should have the Protection Agent software installed. This agent is needed if you are going to make a manual backup from a local device. 

  1. Right-click on the Protection Agent icon in the Windows system tray.
  2. Click Backup Now to start a backup. 



The Protection Agent options are unavailable if a backup or restore is already taking place (for example, if the device is being backed up automatically by Endpoint Cloud).
