Configuring a Shared Device

If users in your company share laptop or desktop computers, you can back up and restore data for each user separately. After the end-user Laptop package is installed on a shared laptop or desktop computer, the shared computer is treated as a separate device for each registered user. For information on the operations you can perform on devices, see Operations.
