When should I run a cold bare metal backup?


This article explains where to find information about the recommended frequency and situations in which you should perform cold bare metal backups.


Unitrends recommends performing a bare metal backup of your clients every 30 days or anytime a patch is installed or software is upgraded on a client. A bare metal backup should also be performed for a client anytime a new network or primary hard disk (SCSI, IDE) hardware is added or any significant configuration changes are made to the server. For more information, see When to perform a cold bare metal backup in the Unitrends Recovery-Series and UEB Administrator’s Guide.
