This procedure describes the general steps for creating a backup operation at the subclient level.

Before You Begin

  • Decide which type of backup is appropriate.

    • Data
    • Startup
    • Job Retry
    • Media
    • Data Path
    • Vault Tracking
    • Alert
  • Plan whether you will run the backup immediately or on a schedule.
  • Determine whether you want to save your backup options as a script to run from a command line interface.


  1. From the CommCell Browser, expand Client Computers > client > Cloud Apps > instance.
  2. Right-click the subclient, and then click Backup.
  3. In the Backup Options dialog box, in the Select Backup Type area, select either of the following backup types:
    • Full
    • Incremental
  4. In the Job Initiation area, define whether the backup job runs immediately or if it will be scheduled.
  5. Optional: To set advanced backup options, click Advanced.
  6. Optional: To save this backup operation as a script that you can run from the command line, click Save as Script.
  7. Click OK.

    If you chose to run the job immediately, the backup starts now.

    If you chose to run the job according to a schedule, the backup runs according to the schedule that you defined.
