SolarWinds Backup Help

Enabling backups in Backup Manager

Two types of backups are available:

  1. Schedule-based backups (run on a certain day/time basis)
  2. Frequency-based backups (run at a specified interval) - available starting from version 18.4


The computer must be turned on during backups and must not enter the sleep mode.

Be aware that in order to successfully restore using the Virtual Disaster Recovery or Bare Metal Recovery methods, you must back up the full Files and Folders data source (the whole system disk C:\ or any other depending on the configuration of your computer)
