Article summary

Note

Only backup folders are passphrase protected.

If the folder group is passphrase protected, you can change the passphrase. A folder group that is passphrase protected has this information displayed when you mouse-over the folder group to the right of the folder group name.

Warning

Changing the passphrase for a folder group will cause all devices using folders in the folder group to be unable to backup files, until the backup service has been re-configured with the new passphrase in the devices administration interfaces.

To change a passphrase:

  1. Select Folders > Folder Groups in the navigation pane.
    The Folder Groups page is displayed.

  5. Click FINISH.
  6. Do one of the following:
    • If cooperative deduplication is enabled, the default, you must update the passphrase on all devices using this folder group.
    • If cooperative deduplication is disabled, you must update the passphrase on the device associated with this folder group, to enable the device to access the folder.
