Running a Backup from the Commvault Edge App on Windows 8 Devices

You can initiate a backup operation for a client directly from your Windows 8 device.

Depending on the client configuration set up in the CommCell by the administrator, backups may be scheduled to run at specific times. These backup details can be seen on the client summary screen of the application. If backups are not scheduled to run, or if you simply need to perform an immediate backup, use the following steps to manually run a backup.


  1. Under My Laptops on the home screen, tap a client to display the client summary screen.

  2. Under Details, tap Backup.

    You can track the progress of the backup job under the Backup section.
