An Archive Point is basically a copy of the most recent Recovery
Point, which can be used for long term data storage to provide further
integrity and safe-keeping of data. It supports all of the Recovery Points'

Bare-Metal Restore in Server Backup
Bare-Metal Restore is the process
of instantly rebuilding a computer or server from scratch after a catastrophic
Deltas are the data that has changed since the last backup
run. Various types of data can be treated as Deltas. It depends on how the
backup application computes deltas. A delta could be a raw disk block, a
variables length portion of a file or even a complete file depending on the
To map the block deltas versions and Recovery Points, the
block deltas database is used. This database is a Disk Safe. Disk Safe contains
the data needed to restore the Device(s) of Server.
File Excludes are files and folders that a user wants to
excluded from replications. The system allows to define various exclude rules
while customizing the settings of a replication. The user can exclude files and
folders as well.
Policy (Data Protection Policy)
Policy is assigned to a Disk Safe. It is a schedule of Disk
Safe replication. You can schedule recurring Policies or create one-time
Policies. The Policy starts at the time you have specified in the Policy
properties. The Policy properties include information about how may Recovery

A Recovery Point is a set of many deltas. Deltas represent
the state of a disk volume block at a particular point in time. Each delta can
be used by one or more Recovery Point. The relationship between Deltas and
Recovery Points is maintained by the Disk Safe.
Recovery Point Retention
The rules that define how many Recovery Points to keep in the
Disk Safe. Old Recovery Points are merged.
The operation of copying block level Deltas from the Server
to Server Backup into a new Recovery Point. Each replication creates a
point-in-time image (a Recovery Point) of the Device.
is the process of creation of the Disk Safe point-in-time snapshot and
computing Deltas based on the last completed synchronization.
