Password Protect Local Backup Manager

After enabling Backup & Recovery, the Backup Manager is downloaded and installed on each server and workstation inheriting this policy and a Backup Manager quick launch shortcut added to their Desktop. This allows the end-user to adjust their Backup & Recovery configuration as well as restore files from their backup.

To restrict the user's access to this functionality, click Enable Password for the local Backup Manager and enter the password. This password is then required when opening the Backup Manager locally, but does not affect Backup Manager access from the Dashboard.

Where a user has Dashboard access, their level of interaction is controlled via Roles and Permissions. From here you can prevent the user from opening the Backup Manager from the Dashboard or performing other actions.
