Step 3: Choose Backup Storage

This page describes the third step of creating a backup task with the New Task Wizard.

On the third step of the New Task Wizard, you need to select where you want to store the backup. The window consists of two panes: Storage Destinations and Folder Selection.

Selecting destination for backups
  • In the Storage Destinations pane, you can see different types of storage where you can copy your data. For example, if you want to store backups in local file system, you need to select Computer.

Technically, storage destinations are plug-ins. During the trial period, you can use all plug-ins without any limitations. After registration, the list of plug-ins will be limited respectively to the edition you register. To learn more, please see Registration...

  • In the Folder Selection pane, you can see folders available in the selected destination.

Note: Most of the storage plug-ins are configurable. For example, to store backups on FTP, you will need to create an FTP configuration. To learn more, please see Plug-in Configurations...

  1. (Server edition only) In the dropdown menu at the top left corner of the window, select Workstation that will store the data.
