When you create a backup of current data, you must select one of the following backup methods:
Back up to a selected drive — Select this backup method to store the backup on floppy diskettes or other low-capacity disks. If the disks contain old backups, you must delete them.
Back up to a specific folder — Select this backup method to store the backup on a high-capacity drive or to select the location to store the backup. High-capacity disks include locations such as ZIP disks and network folders. The folder must contain enough free space to store several compressed backup files.
You must delete old backup files from high-capacity drives. The PDS program does not automatically delete them.
Back up to an Internet FTP Server — Select this backup method to maintain data backup files on an off-site drive. To use this method, you must have Internet access.
Backup Folder — Enter the name of the destination folder on the host drive, or leave the field blank to use the default folder for the user ID.
- Host — Enter the name of the FTP server. You can enter either a URL or an IP address.
- Passive Mode — Select this option if you are connecting to an FTP site that requires this.
- User ID — Enter your host server user ID to log on to the server.
Password — Enter the password for your host server user ID.
- Maximum Number of Backups to Keep on Internet FTP Server — If your FTP account has a disk space limit, enter the number of backups you want to store on the server. When you reach the limit, the PDS program prompts you to delete the oldest backup. To disable the limit, type 0.
