When to validate

As validation is a resource-intensive operation, it makes sense to schedule validation to the managed machine’s off-peak period. On the other hand, if you prefer to be immediately informed whether the data is not corrupted and can be successfully recovered, consider starting validation right after the task creation.

Choose one of the following:

  • Now – to start the validation task right after its creation, that is, after clicking OK on the Validation page.
  • Later – to start the one-time validation task, at the date and time you specify.

    Specify the appropriate parameters as follows:

    • Date and time – the date and time when to start the task.
    • The task will be started manually (do not schedule the task) – select this check box, if you wish to start the task manually later.
  • On schedule – to schedule the task. To learn more about how to configure the scheduling parameters, please see the Scheduling section.
