About the Desktop and Laptop Option

The Backup Exec Desktop and Laptop Option (DLO) provides automated file protection for desktops and laptops (collectively referred to as desktops). Protection is provided whether the computer is connected to the network or offline. When the desktop is not connected to the network, the files are backed up to a user data folder on the desktop. When the computer reconnects to the network, the files are backed up from the local desktop user data folder to the designated network user data folder.

Users who have multiple computers can synchronize the data between their computers so the most up-to-date file versions are available on all of their computers.


This product is intended to provide file-level protection for desktop user data and is not intended to provide a full system backup.
