Use this dialog box to schedule or immediately run a backup job.
Select Backup Type
Specifies the job as a Full backup, which backs up all data for the selected subclients.
Specifies the job as an Incremental backup, which backs up only that portion of the data that is new or has changed since the last backup.
Specifies the job as a Differential backup, which backs up only that portion of the data that is new or has changed since the last full backup.
- Synthetic Full
Specifies the job as a Synthetic Full backup, which creates a Full backup from existing backup data for the selected subclient or backup set (if applicable). The Synthetic Full backup consolidates the backup data; it does not actually back up data from the client computer.
Run Incremental Backup
Specifies the options for running an Incremental backup either immediately before a Synthetic Full backup or immediately after a successfully completed Synthetic Full backup when selected. When cleared, an Incremental backup is not automatically run either immediately before or after the Synthetic Full backup.
- Before Synthetic Full: Specifies the operation will back up any data that is new or changed since the previous backup in order to have it included as part of the Synthetic Full backup.
- After Synthetic Full: Specifies the operation will back up any data that is new or changed since the backup that occurred prior to the Synthetic Full backup.
Specifies this job will run immediately.
Specifies this job will be scheduled. Click Configure to specify the schedule details.
Click to select advanced backup options, such as follow mount points, catalog, start new media, mark media as full etc.
Save As Script
Click to open the Save As Script dialog box, which allows you to save this operation and the selected options as a script file (in XML format). The script can later be run from the Command Line Interface using
qoperation execute command.
When you save an operation as a script, each option in the dialog box has a corresponding XML element in the script file. When you run the script, you can modify the value in any of these XML elements.
