Moving from Datto to MSP360 (Image and File backups)
We are moving what we can from Datto Alto/Siris devices to MSP360. With the Datto, we get image and file backups in one -- we don't have to think about a full image backup vs a backup that we can just pull files from if needed. We always have both in one backup. For MSP360, that does not appear to be the case, correct? If I want both an image backup (for a bare-metal restore) and file backups (to be able to restore just a few files from yesterday if a client calls and accidentally deleted something) with MSP360, I assume that I need to configure two separate backups, correct? They basically are independent from each other?
It seems like such a waste of bandwidth for double the data transfer for what is essentially the same data underneath, yes? Or is there some better way to do this that I'm overlooking?
You can restore files or folders from Image and VM backups with MSP360 Managed Backup.
Thanks -- actually just discovered that a few minutes ago and was coming here to update. I'm not sure this feature existed when I first started using CBB long ago. Or maybe I overlooked in. In any case, it does look like an Image backup is enough to do what I want now without the separate file backup. Thanks!
Thanks for the update. If you'd like a private demo of the product, please reach out to our team as they'd be happy to show you whatever you'd like to see.
