Step 2: Install the Windows File System Agent
To perform 1-Touch Recovery, you must install the Windows File System Agent on the client computer. During the installation, the File System and File System Core packages are selected.
Important: If you only install the File System Core package, you cannot perform system state backups that are essential to perform 1-Touch Recovery.

Review general guidelines to prepare for the installation, which include configurations that your computer might need before the installation.
- Preinstallation Checklist for the Windows File System Agent
Review agent-specific guidelines to prepare for the installation, such as gathering the information that you must provide during the installation.
- Installation Methods
Select the installation method that is most appropriate for your environment.
Use ports 9400 and 9401 to perform 1-touch Recovery because of the following reasons:
- To avoid conflict with existing client computers that use the same IP or DNS name in the CommCell environment
- When you have a firewall configured between the client computers.
Make sure that the ports are available before you start performing 1-Touch recovery.
Step 3: Prepare Your 1-Touch Client
