Backup Options

Use this dialog box to schedule or immediately run a backup job.

Select Backup Type

Full

Specifies the job as a Full backup, which backs up all data for the selected subclients.

Incremental

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.

Differential

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.

Job Initiation

  • Immediate

    Specifies this job will run immediately.

  • Schedule

    Specifies this job will be scheduled. Click Configure to specify the schedule details.

Advanced

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.

For more information on backups performed from the command line, see Command Line Interface for Macintosh File System iDataAgent.
