Storm season is back, bringing with it the potential for significant weather events. If you have clients in areas prone to infrastructure disruption, visit the Disaster Recovery Resources guide for preparedness information. Datto recommends performing proactive disaster recovery testing to mitigate potential downtime.

Offsite Audit Report: BCDR Status



This article explains the Offsite Audit Report. This report shows what recovery points are in the cloud, the characteristics of that data, and and how much space that data uses. For more information about how Datto’s Inverse Chain Technology works, see the article Explaining the Inverse Chain.


The Offsite Audit Report gives you a comprehensive report of the Datto device's offsite backups, including:

  • Total device size
  • Information about the cloud server on which the data is stored
  • Active Datasets per Protected Machine ("Agent")
  • "Oldchain" Datasets that are stored for archival purposes
  • A breakdown of stored recovery points for each agent


The offsite audit runs once per day; re-running the audit will generate the same report information.
