About Backup, Archive, and Restore

This guide provides basic information about backup and restore procedures for new users of NetBackup.

Backup, Archive, and Restore is your interface to the NetBackup client software on your computer. NetBackup lets you back up, archive, and restore files, folders or directories, and volumes or partitions that reside on your computer.

The computer that needs the backup or restore is the client. The computer that manages the backup and retrieval of the data is the server.

The Backup, Archive, and Restore interface must be configured to work with your system. The NetBackup administrator may do that during the installation process.
