    Here are some frequently asked questions related to the AD Backup and Recovery add-on in ADAudit Plus:

    • Does ADAudit Plus' licensing include the AD Backup and Recovery feature?

      No. To use the AD Backup and Recovery feature, you need to purchase the add-on. You can purchase it here.

    • How is ADAudit Plus 'AD Backup and Recovery add-on licensed?

      It is licensed based on the number of enabled AD user objects you wish to back up. For example, if you've purchased the add-on for 500 users, you can back up 500 enabled AD users.

    • Do I have to get different licenses for my AD groups and computers?

      No, the AD Backup and Recovery add-on is licensed based on the number of enabled users and not on any other AD objects. However, you can back up AD groups, computers, and all other AD objects with the purchased add-on.

    • Does the license include disabled users?

      This add-on is priced based on the number of enabled AD users you wish to back up. However, all AD objects, including disabled users, can be backed up with the add-on.

    • I have not purchased the add-on. Will I still be able to back up my AD users?

      You can still back up all AD objects, but there are a few limitations. You will not be able to:

      • Manually trigger incremental backups.
      • Perform full backups.
      • Perform bulk object restorations.
      • Enable backups for more than one domain.
      • Edit backup settings.
