The Local Mount Utility (LMU) is a downloadable application that lets you mount a recovery point on a remote Rapid Recovery Core from any compatible machine. The light-weight utility includes the aavdisk and aavstor drivers, but it does not run as a service. When you install the utility, by default, it is installed in the directory C:\Program Files\AppRecovery\LocalMountUtility and a shortcut appears on the machine’s desktop.
While the utility was designed for remote access to cores, you also can install the LMU on an Rapid Recovery Core. When it runs on a core, the application recognizes and displays all mounts from that core, including mounts performed through the Rapid Recovery Core Console. Likewise, mounts performed on the LMU also appear in the console.
Users have the following functions within the Local Mount Utility:
Description of LMU options

Options - changing the default mount point directory, presenting alternative Core credentials and increasing the core Connection timeout
