Question

How do I generate a continuity audit report for my Datto device? 

Environment

Answer

This Datto SIRIS' Continuity Audit Report can help you create a cohesive document showing the date, time, and status of each backup. The report lists the following information about the data associated with your Datto device:

  • Date of backup
  • Time of backup
  • Screenshot Verification status
  • Recovery point integrity
  • Retention settings (local and cloud)
This feature is not available on ALTO or NAS devices.
This report only runs once a day.
