Acronis Cyber Protect 15 is a software protection for businesses looking for an all-in-one solution that can detect and mitigate cyberattacks, and back up data with disaster recovery.
With feature backup file/folders will not be enough to restore the operating system. It is advisable to choose to back up files/folders if you plan to protect only certain data (e.g. current project). This will reduce the backup size, thus saving storage space.

SERVER01 will be installed as Acronis Management Server, SERVER02 will be installed as Acronis Agent connect to SERVER01 to backup configurations.
We will configure backup SERVER01 with Backup File/Folder feature for DataBackup Folder and save it to Data SRV1 Folder on SERVER02. After the backup has been successful, we will try to delete the data in the DataBackup Folder and proceed to recover this folder with the existing backup file.
The data in the DataBackup folder includes Test1, 2 and 3 file.
