Backup Name
Enter the name of the backup job. This name will appear in the backup list, right under the chosen picture. This field is mandatory.
The name of the backup job is closely related to the name of the subdirectory in destination that contains zipped and mirrored files and to the name of the catalog. That is why when you rename the backup job, the name of the catalog and the name of the subdirectory from destination are also changed if possible.
If the destination is on HDD (local), LAN (network) FTP, SFTP, Azure, Amazon, DropBox, Google Drive, Box or OneDrive (cloud) the name of the subdirectory and the name of the catalog can be changed, except for the case when you do not have enough permissions to rename it, or some files are locked.
If the destination is on a removable disk CD, DVD or Blu-ray disc, floppy disc and you have run the backup job, the catalog and the subdirectory in destination are already created and they will not be changed. If the backup job has not been run yet, then the catalog and the subdirectory will be created with a name similar to the backup job at first backup run.

Description
In this field you can enter a description for the backup job.

Job icon
You can change the icon of the current backup job by selecting a new icon from the list we provided.
