What happens if I lose my encryption key?


Rackspace does not store customer encryption keys. Only you will know and be able to access your encryption passphrase. If you forget your passphrase, you will not be able to restore data from your backups.

For more information, see the section on Setting up Encryption on your Cloud Backup System in the Getting Started Guide.
