Specify a destination where the exported object will be stored. Exporting backups to the same archive is not allowed.
1. Selecting the export destination
Enter the full path to the destination in the Path field, or select the desired destination in the folders tree.
- To export data to a centralized unmanaged vault, expand the Centralized vaults group and click the vault.
- To export data to a personal vault, expand the Personal vaults group and click the vault.
- To export data to a local folder on the machine, expand the Local folders group and click the required folder.
- To export data to a network share, expand the Network folders group, select the required networked machine and then click the shared folder. If the network share requires access credentials, the program will ask for them.
Note for Linux users: To specify a Common Internet File System (CIFS) network share which is mounted on a mount point such as /mnt/share, select this mount point instead of the network share itself.
- To export data to an FTP or SFTP server, type the server name or address in the Path field as follows:
ftp://ftp_server:port _number or sftp://sftp_server:port number
If the port number is not specified, port 21 is used for FTP and port 22 is used for SFTP.
After entering access credentials, the folders on the server become available. Click the appropriate folder on the server.
You can access the server as an anonymous user if the server enables such access. To do so, click Use anonymous access instead of entering credentials.
According to the original FTP specification, credentials required for access to FTP servers are transferred through a network as plaintext. This means that the user name and password can be intercepted by an eavesdropper using a packet sniffer.
- To export data to a locally attached tape device, expand the Tape drives group, then click the required device.
For the management server the folders tree contains:
2. Using the archives table
To assist you with choosing the right destination, the table on the right displays the names of the archives contained in each location you select in the tree.
While you are reviewing the location content, archives can be added, deleted or modified by another user or by the program itself according to scheduled operations. Use the Refresh button to refresh the list of archives.
3. Naming the new archive
By default, the exported archive inherits the name of the original archive. Because having multiple archives of the same names in the same location is not advisable, the following actions are disabled with the default archive name:
- exporting part of an archive to the same location
- exporting an archive or part of an archive to a location where an archive of the same name exists
- exporting an archive or part of an archive to the same location twice
In any of the above cases, provide an archive name that is unique to the destination folder or vault. If you need to redo the export using the same archive name, first delete the archive that resulted from the previous export operation.
