If you uninstalled the Connector software on a computer or replaced the computer with a computer with the same name, you must install the Connector software to connect the computer to the server again.
When you uninstalled the Connector software on a computer, you could choose to keep or delete the backups. If you chose to keep the backups, the backups for that computer are not affected when you reinstall the connector software.
If you replace a computer with a computer of the same name, you can use the existing backups to restore the new computer to the state of the old computer at the time of the backup, or you can use the existing backup to restore files and folders to the new computer.
For information about connecting the computer to the server, see How do I disconnect or reconnect my computer from and to the server?.
