Configuring the alert notification settings

When Metalogix Backup for SharePoint generates an alert, it can log the alert notification to the Application Event Log on the computer that hosts the Management Service, send an email to one or more addresses that you specify, or both. You can use the Alert Notifications page in the Configuration wizard to set up the alert notifications.

Configuring the grooming settings

If you choose, Metalogix Backup for SharePoint can groom older alerts and backup sets automatically to conserve storage space. When it grooms data, Metalogix Backup for SharePoint automatically removes the old data from the backup location or the alert log. You can use the Grooming tab in the Configuration wizard to set up the grooming options.
