The Database Backup Editor window allows you to define database backup jobs, and is broken up into several key areas.




Shows your current database connection (if any) and a listing of databases to be backed up. For more information, see the Source databases help topic.




This area shows you a listing of backup destinations and allows you to manage them. For details, see the Destinations help topic.




The configuration area of the backup job editor includes the following fields:

Run as - Shows the current user execution context for the backup job. You can change this via the Windows account tab of the Backup Job Settings window.

Name - This is the backup job name as it appears in the main window backup listing.

Description - Provides a space for descriptive notes regarding this backup job. Will be shown in the main window job listing when available.

Sort index - Used when sorting backup jobs in the main application window using the custom sort index option.
