  3. Right-click the backup job for the InterSystems Caché database, and then click Pick for Backup Copy.
  4. Right click the storage policy that contains IntelliSnap backup jobs, point to All Tasks, and then click Run Backup Copy.

    The Backup Copy dialog box appears.

  5. In the No of Simultaneous Job to run box, enter the number of jobs that you want to run.
  6. In the Select Backup Type area, select the type of backup that you want to perform:
    1. To perform a full backup, select Full.
  7. In the Job initiation area, specify whether to run the backup job immediately or to schedule it.
