Contributors netapp-rlithman netapp-aherbin Download PDF of this topic

You can back up your unprotected data by assigning it to a backup policy. When unprotected data is assigned to a backup policy, it moves to a PENDING state until the next scheduled backup for the assigned policy occurs, after which it is moved to a PROTECTED state.
If you want to change the backup frequency of protected data, you can assign the data to a different backup policy tier.

Steps
  1. From the Dashboard, click the number above PROTECTED or UNPROTECTED in the box of the service you want to change.
    If you want to change the backup frequency of protected data, click PROTECTED. If you want to backup newly discovered mailboxes, sites, or MySites, select UNPROTECTED.
