    Setting Description
    Index all data for Search Allows for granular search and restore of the backup data. The system temporarily decrypts data, scans it, and builds the relevant search index. Once the index is built, the system encrypts data and the index again.
    By default, this option is enabled. If you want to disable indexing, contact Infrascale Support. Granular search and restore will be unavailable, but you would still be able to browse backups by date
    Automatically activate new sites Select to enable automatic backup for new OneDrive sites. If you choose not to use this option, you will need to manually add new sites and activate backup for them
