How to create an Advanced System Protection backup job

Launch BackupAssist and follow the steps outlined below:

  1. Select the Jobs tab.
  2. Select Home.
  3. Select Create a New Backup Job.
  4. Select System Protection.
  5. Select Advanced System Protection engine - available in v12 and later.
  6. If this is the first time you have created a backup job, you will be asked to provide a Backup user identity

  7. Selections.
    Select the volumes and applications you want to back up. VSS applications will be displayed as application directory containers. Individual files cannot be selected to ensure the backups have full file restore and system recovery functionality.
  8. Destination media.
    Select the media you want to back up to. This step’s name will change to the media type selected when you click Next.
  9. Schedule
    Select the Daily backup scheme and review the options available.
  10. Set up destination.
    Configure the options for the destination selected in step 7.
  11. Notifications
    Once a backup job has completed, BackupAssist can send an email to inform selected recipients of the result. This email notification is enabled during the creation of the backup job, but you must also provide your mail server settings so that the notifications can be sent. To learn how to configure your mail server for BackupAssist, see Email server settings.
  12. Prepare media
    This step will allow you to prepare removable media (External disk destination selection) and label it. If you are not using external drives, we recommend Editing the backup job once you have created it and using the Prepare Media option to label each drive. 
  13. Name your backup.
    Provide a name for your backup job, and click Finish.

Your Advanced System Protection backup job has now been created.
