Performing an Archive Operation for UNIX and Macintosh File Systems

When you run an archive operation, the files that meet the archiving rules are backed up and stubbed depending on the following factors:


  1. From the CommCell Browser, expand Client Computers > client > File System >archive_set.

  2. Right-click the appropriate subclient, and then click Backup.

    The Backup Options dialog box appears.

    Archiving works in a forever incremental model, so only the Incremental option is enabled.


    For archive subclients, the first job is converted to a Full backup job. Differential backups are not supported.

  3. In the Job initiation area, specify whether to run the backup job immediately or to scheduled it.

  4. Click OK.

After your backup job completes, files that meet the archiving rules are stubbed.
