Checking data integrity

The Data Integrity Scanner simplifies the process of scanning network user data from previous DLO backups to detect unrestorable backup data. It verifies that all data is encrypted using the most recent user key. It also ensures that all data has the correct recovery key for emergency restoration.

When Desktop Agents are upgraded, they automatically perform a data integrity check. When the Administration Console is opened, it identifies Desktop Agents that have not been checked for integrity. If any are found, you are prompted to scan them.

To check data integrity

  1. On the Tools menu, click Wizards > Data Integrity Scanner.

  2. Click Next.

  3. Do one of the following:

    • To set advanced options, click Advanced Options, and then go to step 4.

    • To skip advanced options, go to step 5.

  4. Select the appropriate options, and then click OK.

    Permanently remove previously quarantined data

    Select this check box to delete all previously quarantined data.

    Quarantine data encrypted with outdated keys

    Select this check box to quarantine all files with outdated keys. If this option is not checked, data is scanned without being quarantined. After data is quarantined, the Desktop Agent backs up a new version of the file with the correct encryption key.

    Include computers that have already been validated

    Select this check box to force all data to be rescanned, even if it has previously been validated.

    Verbose output

    Select this check box to receive detailed information from the scan.

  5. Click Start.

  6. Review the scan results.

  7. If the scan identified data that was encrypted with outdated keys but you did not choose to quarantine the data, repeat step 1 to step 6.

  8. Click Next.

  9. Click Finish.
