Manually backing up a dataset


You can create an on-demand backup of a dataset.

What you'll need

You must have the following information available:

  • Backup name and description

  • Policy name, if necessary

  • Policy override information (if you plan to change any of the previously specified policy options)

  • Backup type

  • Backup options information

  1. From the navigation pane, click Protection  Datasets.

  2. Select the dataset for which you want to create a manual backup and click Backup.

    The Backup wizard appears.

  3. Complete the steps in the wizard to create your on-demand backup.

    Closing the wizard does not cancel the on-demand backup.


You can view the status of the on-demand backup in the Jobs Management window.
