Manually start a backup job
Perform a backup manually rather than waiting for the scheduled start time. The MSP Backup Profile includes a schedule for regular backup jobs on a device. You can run a job manually, outside of the regular schedule, if the device requires an immediate backup because new software was installed or important information needs to be securely retained.
- Click Actions > Run a Backup.
- In the Backup Configuration area, select the type of backup to perform.
- Select the devices or filter to target.
- Choose the schedule and select the users to target.
- Click Save.
The backup will begin at the specified time set in the schedule. If you used the defaults, the backup begins immediately. The time to backup a device will vary depending on the device's resources, the amount of data, and the backup type.
