Initiating data backup from a device

Triggering backup from user devices

In some scenarios, you might need to remotely trigger a backup from a user device. If this is the first backup, it will be a full backup. The backup will also be full if it is the first backup after changing user storage. A full backup might take longer depending on the data that is backed up. If this is not the first backup, it will be incremental in nature. 


To backup data

  1. On the menu bar, click Manage > Devices.
  2. Select the device that you want to back up.
  3. Click Backup Now.
