Top: Select the “top” of your tree, normally this will be [ROOT]. In case your company is part of a larger company, where you can only manager a smaller sub-tree, you can set the “top” of your subtree as your new top. This will save a lot of time, the program doesn’t have to browse the  objects above your sub-tree. You probably even couldn’t read the data above your sub-tree. In this situation you probably aren’t allowed to change the schema! Keep you company policies always in mind!

Autostart: This option is only used by backup.exe. If checked then backup.exe will automatically start the backup (after a 30 seconds delay) with the default settings.

Path: The program stores all the backup data into a single file. Give the path where the file need to be saved. There is a special charactersequence  %t. The program will replace the %t with the current treename.

Filename: Give the filename for the backup file. There are 3 special charactersequences:

%t this will be replaced with the treename
%d replaced by the current date
%h replaced by the current time

Do not give an extention or path!

Ext: Default the extention of the backupfile is nds.

Links: Many objects in the NDS have other objects pointing to them, you can think of the links between group and users, but also ACL-rights  (nds-rights) are pointers from other objects to the object. If you include the links to an object, you can also restore security equals and ACL-rights  (and others). Gettting all the links is a intensive process, so an backup without links will be much faster, but you can’t restore the whole  functionality of an object. Default are the links included.

File rights: The program can also backup the trustee rights to directories (on a Netware server) of an object. On restore these rights can also be  restored. The program needs to know which servers and volumes must be included. You have to create a special ini-file where you define the  properties. This option is only usefull in the extended version or during the first 60 days of the standard version.

Vols: Give the complete path and filename of the file where the server/volumes are given that need to be scanned for the trustees. Only available in the extended version.

Partition check: Not supported in this version.

Use Master if possible: The program will always use the master replica of the partitions for the backup. This can be a problem if the server with the replica is down. In the next version the program will use the master unless the server is not available and will use any R/W replica
