The LocalSpeedVault is a software tool that provides a multi-tiered approach to backup storage. Simultaneously backing up data to both the cloud and the specified vault location,

Enable the LocalSpeedVault and specify its location, for example a network share, USB drive, attached storage (NAS or DAS), or a client machine.

Backup & Recovery then determines the best method to restore data, either over the LAN or from the cloud. If speed is of the essence, and the data sets are large, restoring locally from the vault dramatically reduces the restoration time. Where the vault is unavailable due to internal network issues, a disk crash or disaster the data is retrieved from the cloud.

Ensure the device acting as the LocalSpeedVault has enough capacity to hold the data backed up over the retention period.
Depending on capacity, the LocalSpeedVault may be used as the backup repository for multiple device.
Once setup a different sub-directory is created for each server and workstation using this path as a LocalSpeedVault

Enable LocalSpeedVault

Click Enabled and enter the local or network location to act as the backup repository in the Path field. For example, enter a UNC path to the network location \\Storage1\Backup.

Where the Backup & Recovery Service's logon account does not have access to the network location for the vault. A Username and Password with the required permissions to access this location may be entered.


Post-installation Configuration

After Backup & Recovery is installed on a device, the LocalSpeedVault is configured in the device's Backup Manager through Preferences > LocalSpeedVault.

Tick the box corresponding to LocalSpeedVault to enable and enter the Vault Location along with the Username and Password credentials (if required).

If changes are made to the Schedule, Backup selection or LocalSpeedVault in the Backup Manager, the policy is set at the individual level and the device no longer inherits the policy settings for the overall device type, Client or Site.
