Managed Backup provides the Online Access feature. This functionality offers customers a secure way to view their backup content and ensure that data is properly backed up. Online Access features downloading data stored in the cloud storage and link sharing with other authorized parties.

Viewing Data Online on a Client-Side

Users can view their backed up data by going to the generated URL and entering their username (i.e. email) and password. The provider informs users what URL they can use for online access.
Note that backups made with the filename encryption enabled cannot be viewed using the Online Access tool
- Go to the Online Access URL.
- Enter login (i.e. user's email) and password. Click Login.
Once authorized, users are redirected to the inventory view with their backup content. Users can browse the files and folders, download objects, and create links to them to share with other users configured on the Users section.
