What does local cache verification do?
The health status of x360Recover local cache is now visible in the user interface and the process of local cache verification performs automated self-healing for any missing data. If missing blocks are found (e.g. data on the protected system hard drive that is not already in the local cache), a bitmap of missing blocks is created and saved. The x360Recover agent will process the bitmap during the next backup cycle. Any missing blocks will be populated to the local cache repository to ‘self-heal’ the missing data.

Auto Update Best Practices
We recommend that Enable Auto Update is enabled on the Settings -> Update Manager page on each of your x360Recover devices.
We also recommend that you enable Auto-Enable Remote Assist When Upgrading so that remote access will be available to our development team should something go wrong with your upgrade.
This will ensure that your x360Recover devices are updated with the latest software enhancements in a timely fashion, and that the x360Recover Support team will have a short window of time to access and repair any troublesome devices without requiring user intervention.
