When a desktop user receives a new computer, DLO can be used to migrate user data to the new computer. DLO accomplishes this task by staging a user's backed up data on the new computer using a restore process. When the user logs in, the data is restored to the same location it occupied on the original computer. The final restoration of data occurs automatically when the user logs in and does not require a connection to the media server.
