Background: Our backups are stored on a Data Domain and the Data Domain replicates itself to a remote site, additionally we've got daily snapshots on the data domain itself to prevent backup data deletion (these snapshots can only be deleted using the sysadmin account).
Because we use Data Domain we are storing our backups without compression or deduplication.
But my question can be the same for the following situation:
Lets assume I've got a media agent, with a data disk (where the disk library is on) attached to it. the building catches fire and I am only able to unplug the data drive. I loose everything expect for the data drive.
If I install a new commcell, can I then import the backups from that data drive somehow?

For your use case, this will make restoring the CS MUUUUUUUUCH easier!
One of the easiest ways to protect yourself rom a Ransomware disaster is having a copy of your Commserve database air gapped in the cloud.
We also recommend that you save the Commserve database on a network share which protects you from losing the database backup in the event of a hardware failure.
- To configure the Cloud DR Feature, please Go to Panel/ Maintenance/ DR Backup, then enable 'Upload the DR backup metadata to Commvault Cloud'.
- To remediate the DR backup location, navigate to Control Panel > DR Backup Settings > Export Settings tab and select Use Network Share and configure accordingly.
