Accessing Edge Monitor

After installing the Laptop Backup software, backup operations will be automatically performed based on the schedule set by the Administrator, but you can monitor the backup jobs on your laptop using Edge Monitor that runs on the system tray. You can also view, control and initiate backup operations. Edge Monitor also includes a link to launch the Web Console.

Before You Begin

  • You must have the Data Protection Operations permission to view, start, and control backups using the Backup Monitor tool.
  • To use the Edge Monitor on UNIX laptops, you must install the Pangox Library.


  • Start Edge Monitor:

    Edge Monitor for Windows

    Edge Monitor for Macintosh

    Edge Monitor for UNIX


  • The summary of the backup jobs previously run on your laptop is displayed in the Edge Monitor dialog box.
  • After a backup (scheduled by the Administrator) completes, you can perform your first restore. Restore operations are performed from the Web Console, which you can access from the Edge Monitor tool by clicking its Open Web Console link. For more information, see Accessing the Web Console.
