Press the Backup button to create or run backup jobs.
Select an existing backup job from the list and press Backup to run the selected job.
Pressing the button will open the New Backup Wizard to start creating a new backup job.
If you want to assign the selected backup job to your One touch device, check the Use job for One Touch Button option.

By default this option is checked.
To make a full or a filtered restore start the Restore Wizard by pressing the Restore (or F7) button from the application's toolbar. You can restore to the original location or to a different location of your choice.
Incremental backup stores all files changed since the last FULL, DIFFERENTIAL OR INCREMENTAL backup. The advantage of an incremental backup is that it takes the least time to finish. The disadvantage is that during a restore operation, each increment is processed and this could result in a lengthy restore job.
