Introduction

This function is to backup all the data to the selected target media.
It is advisable to do a daily backup using "Generational Backup Scheme" method and keep it in different place (i.e. bring it home instead keep in office).

Generational Backup Scheme

A generational backup is one of the simplest, most effective methods for making and keeping backup copies of your data. Properly done, it combines ease of use and data protection.
