Task Wizard

This wizard helps you create, edit, and run backup cataloging tasks and restore tasks. Backup cataloging tasks store lists of backups that need to be cataloged. Restore tasks store matches between one or more source and target storages. Tasks are based on prepackaged templates, each featuring a specific combination of types of source and target storages.

When using the Task Wizard, you can register new source storages and/or select from previously registered source storages.
