ISSUE

Purpose

This article addresses how to configure the Unitrends agent for Windows to protect all volumes on the same disk rather than only the root (C:) volume during a hot  BareMetal backup.

Applies To

Windows Platforms

Description

Execution Process

  1. First we need to modify the master.ini go to (normally c:) c:\PCBP\master.ini on the agent. 
  2. In the BProfessional section add the line Autoconfigureincludes=false..
