Working with protected machines in the Local Mount Utility

With the Local Mount Utility (LMU), you can mount and browse recovery points from protected machines without having to be logged in to the Rapid Recovery Core Console associated with that machine. For more information, see the following procedures:

Mounting a recovery point using the Local Mount Utility

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.




This option lets you mount the recovery point using the default selection from the LMU options. For more information, see Changing the Local Mount Utility options.

Advanced mount...

This option opens the Advanced Mounts dialog box.

If you selected Advanced Mount, complete the options described in the following table.

Table 167. Advanced Mount options



Mount point path

Enter or browse for the location to use for mounting the recovery points.

Mount type

Select one of the following options:

For descriptions of each option, see Step 4.

Click Mount.

The LMU automatically opens the folder containing the mounted recovery point. The Local Mount column on the Recovery Points page of the LMU indicates how the recovery point was mounted.

Exploring a mounted recovery point using the Local Mount Utility

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.

Click Explore next to the volume you want to explore.

Refreshing recovery points

If the option is enabled, the Local Mount Utility (LMU) receives real-time updates from the Core and protected machines. If this option is disabled, to see the latest recovery points for a machine, you must periodically click Refresh on the LMU home screen.
