[email protected] Menu&Total [email protected] Backup copies all disk files and directories to tape.It offers the versatility of later restoring only selectedfiles or directories while providing a complete backup ofyour disk as insurance against disk failure.To execute a Total Backup, click on the Total button orpress from the Backup Menu.A Total Backup can be scheduled to run unattended. Refer tothe User's Guide or the Scheduler help text for furtherinformation.&Modified Files [email protected] Modified Files Backup copies all files changed since thelast backup to tape. Because unmodified files are not backedup, you must perform a Total Backup first before a ModifiedFiles Backup to insure that all files are backed up.This option saves time because it does not back up filesthat haven't changed. Combine Total backups and Modifiedbackups for the best tape backup protection.A Modified Files Backup makes efficient use of time andtape, but it requires more thoughtful management toinsure that all the data can be restored.To execute a Modified Files Only Backup, click on theModified button or key from the Backup Menu.A Modified Files Backup can be scheduled. Refer to theUser's Guide or the Scheduler help text for furtherinformation.ONLY BACKUPA Modified Files Only Backup is a quick way to backup filesmodified since the last Total Backup. However, the onlyfiles backed up are those which fall in the path of thelatest Total Backup. This path can be reset only byperforming another Total Backup and entering a new startingpath. Make a Total Backup at least once a week to avoid thenecessity of restoring a large number of tape volumes torecover your data.To execute a Modified Files Only Backup, press F3 fromthe Backup Menu and enter any information necessary inresponse to the software prompts.&Selective [email protected] Backup allows you to choose specific files ordirectories to be backed up.
