General settings - Backup
Backup is available as an optional module.
To make sure that backups are carried out successfully, enough free disk space needs to be available on the client (backup cache) and on the server (backup storage). For server and clients you can define threshold values for warning messages and error messages. When the amount of free disk space on the client or the server drops below the warning threshold, a warning message will be added to the Security events module, and the client cache will be automatically cleaned up, retaining the latest archive but removing all others (if they have been uploaded to the ManagementServer). When the amount of free disk space on the client or the server drops below the error threshold, an error message will be added to the Security events module. Server backup storage and client cache will be automatically cleaned up. If there is still not enough free disk space on the server, backups will not be carried out.
Under Server backup paths a path can be entered where all backups being generated are stored. If no path is entered here, all backups are stored under C:\ProgramData\G Data\AntiVirus ManagementServer\Backup or C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\G Data \AntiVirus ManagementServer\Backup.
As all backups generated by the G DATA software are encrypted, there is also the option of exporting backup passwords and saving them for later use. The Import backup archives button enables access to backups that are stored in other folders.
