About automated tasks

Automated Tasks > About automated tasks

Automated Tasks is a feature that enables the automation of restore and cataloging operations in Recovery Manager for Exchange. This chapter lists key benefits of using automated tasks, describes how to manage automated tasks, and provides basic usage scenarios for the Automated Tasks feature.

Key benefits

Automated tasks allow you to

  • Reduce workload and improve performance. Using automated tasks improves the Recovery Manager for Exchange productivity and saves system resources in situations when you need to catalog extremely large backups or restore significant amounts of data.
  • Automate recurring operations. Once you create an automated task, you do not have to step through the Recovery Manager for Exchange wizards to perform a recurring restore or cataloging operation. You simply run the task.
  • Perform several restore and/or cataloging operations simultaneously. You can run several automated tasks in parallel.
  • Schedule operations. You can schedule restore and/or cataloging operations. For more information, see Creating a new scheduled task and Scheduling an existing task.
