Exporting File System Backups as SMB and NFS Shares

Access a File System Backup from a Windows Computer as an SMB Share

From a Windows computer, you can access a file system backup as an SMB share (that is exported from a Windows MediaAgent).

Some use cases for this enhancement are as follows:

  • Offload production machines by performing an antivirus scan or by running an analytics job on the backup data.

  • Validate the backup data.
