Viewing Agent volume information in the Rapid Recovery Add-on for Kaseya

You can view information about the volumes for machines that are being protected by the Rapid Recovery software. To get updated Rapid Recovery Agent volume information, verify that you have set the credentials for logging on to the protected machine.

About protecting machines using the Rapid Recovery Add-on for Kaseya

You can protect the volumes of data from the machines and Windows Servers on which you have installed the Rapid Recovery Agent software. When a machine is protected, full and incremental snapshots of data are captured from and stored in the repository associated with the Core.

From the Rapid Recovery Add-on for Kaseya, you can protect a machine, update the protection and replication status of a machine, and remove a machine from protection.
