With the LMU, you can mount any recovery point associated with a connected Core machine, including protected machines, replicated machines, and recovery points only machines.
Before mounting a recovery point, the local mount utility (LMU) must connect to the Core on which the recovery point is stored. As described in the procedure Adding a Core machine to the Local Mount Utility, the number of Cores that can be added to the LMU is unlimited; however, the application can connect to only one Core at a time. For example, if you mount a recovery point of a machine protected by one Core and then mount a recovery point of another machine protected by a different Core, the LMU automatically disconnects from the first Core to establish a connection with the second Core.
The recovery points appear in the main frame.

Exploring a recovery point opens the backed up data in a Windows Explorer window, and lets you search the volumes and folders for the item or items you want to recover.
You can then recover items by copying them to your preferred location using a file manager such as Windows Explorer (or programmatically using Windows APIs). Complete the following procedure to explore a currently mounted recovery point.
The LMU does not receive real-time updates from the Core and protected machines. To refresh a protected machine and see its latest recovery points, complete the following procedure.
