Hi there, 
How can I attach an existing backup template permanently to an existing Backup Definition file(s)? 
At the moment I have to select a template and then click through. 

After migrating to Version 6 I wanted to define a new Backup Definition file. I wonder how to do that. I think that in the previous version I had the 
possibility to add a new backup def. file. 

"Add to list" open a folder with already existing files. That's not what I wanted. I want to create a new backup file from scratch. 

Thanks.

Walt



Thanks

Walt

Hi,

Thanks for posting.

To create a new backup definition file you have to create a backup, be it:
a) A disk image.
b) A File & Folder backup.
c) A disk clone.
At the end of the particular backup wizard there will be an option to save the backup definition file.

When creating the backup definition you do not attach a template to a definition. Instead, the template is used (during the creation of a definition) as a blueprint for how often you want to schedule the new backup. If at all, you can choose not to schedule the backup. The scheduling information is not stored in the backup definition, only the retention plan is stored.

I hope this helps.

Kind regards.
