Virtual disaster recovery guide

The Virtual Disaster Recovery feature lets you create a working mirror of your computer and run it in a virtual environment. The mirror can be kept up-to-date automatically through the Continuous Restore feature.

The feature is currently available on Windows devices. A Linux version is in beta.

It is highly recommended to use an isolated network for tests. Performing virtual disaster recovery to a production environment can result in conflicts (for example, there can be 2 machines with the same IP addresses). Such conflicts lead to errors and data loss.
