Installing the Windows File System Agent on a Client Computer - Windows

You can install the Windows File System agent using either the CommCell Console or the installation package created by the Download Manager.

Before You Begin


  1. Choose one of the following installation methods:

  2. Install the File System package, which is under the Microsoft Windows category.


  • Regardless of the installation method, the File System Core package is automatically included in the installation.

  • By default, the software is installed in C:\Program Files\CommVault\ContentStore. You can change the destination folder, but it cannot be on a mapped network drive.

  • The installation program uses the C:\%allusersprofile% folder as a temporary location to copy the installation files. This location does not change, even if you choose to install the software on a drive other than C:.

What to Do Next

  • Review the tasks that you must perform after the installation. For more information, see Postinstallation Tasks for Clients.

  • To perform the required agent configurations, refer to the Getting Started page of each agent that you installed.
