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.

Part 1 - Introduction To Customizing Datto Drive


If you are subscribed to the "Professional" level of Datto Drive, you are given the ability to customize the URL as well as the look and feel of the product.  You do not have to do both, but they are both available to you.

Custom Look and Feel

This is achieved through the use of a CSS file that you can change and upload via your Datto Drive account.

Items that you can customize are:

  • login page background image
  • login text
  • login box styling
  • Post-login account colors (header, text, sidebar)
  • Account logo
  • Account logo (for emails)
  • Browser favicon 

An example of a restyled login page is as below:


Custom URL

If you wish to change the URL of your Datto Drive account, you can do so by having the Managed Service Provider who manages your account to upload your SSL certificates to our servers.

It is important to note that Datto does not obtain the custom URL for you.  You must register the custom domain first and then provide your MSP with the certificates.

Below is an image of the Datto Drive login page found at a different URL:
