The LMU is a downloadable Windows-based application that lets you mount a Rapid Recovery recovery point in any of the three available modes on any Windows machine. The light-weight utility can be installed on 32-bit as well as 64-bit Windows operating systems and 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\Local Mount Utility and a shortcut appears on the machine's desktop.
While the utility was designed for remote access to a Rapid Recovery Core machine, you can also install the LMU on the same machine as a 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 Core Console.
When the LMU is installed on the same machine as Mailbox Restore, the LMU automatically launches Mailbox Restore when you use it to open an Exchange database. Mailbox Restore is the Rapid Recovery application used to restore Microsoft Exchange data stores and items. You can install it upon installation of the LMU or the Rapid Recovery Core.
