File Migration to Cloud Storage

You can migrate data to cloud storage using one of the following methods:

Migration Using Days-Based Retention

If you want to archive data to cloud storage and retain it for a longer period of time, use the Days Based retention feature.

  1. Have the administrator enable the Days Based retention feature for your client computer. You cannot run Synthetic full backups once you enable the Days-Based Retention feature.
  2. Have the administrator create a OnePass subclient, and then add the data that you want to archive as the subclient content.
  3. Have the administrator assign the OnePass subclient to a storage policy that is configured using cloud storage.


  • Do not enable Deduplication on the storage policy.
  • If the stubs are backed up to the cloud storage, perform a browse operation and restore the required stubs to the desired location.

Migration Using a Reference Copy Subclient

Applies To: Windows File System Agent, OnePass for Windows File Systems, UNIX File Systems Agent, OnePass for UNIX File Systems

Have the administrator configure a Reference Copy subclient to migrate data to cloud storage.
