The following window will be displayed:
Archive by GUI
We are not supporting backup so ignore the top panel of the display. If you click on “Archive” (the one highlighted in blue), the following screen will appear:
Files are displayed in the standard descending tree format and you can drill down to any sub-directory or file. When you get to the last directory, you click on the “folder” icon to expand the list of files.
To select files to be archived, click the box nest to the file name. To select the entire sub-directory, click on the box next to the sub-directory you wish to archive. (the boxes next to each file will automatically be filled in).
You can set the “description” of the archive package by entering your description into the text box at the top of the screen.
Once files are selected and you have annotated your archive by means of the “description” text box, click on the “archive” button and the operation will commence.
Retrieval by GUI
To retrieve files, the operation is the same except that you would click on Retrieve. The screen that is displayed will look like:
Note that instead of the hierarchical display being by file, the display will be by “description“. Drilling down on one of the archive packages will display the file structure of what was archived.
Select the files and click the “options” button to select the options you want for the Retrieve.
Then click “retrieve” to continue.
Delete Archive by GUI
From the main screen, select Utilities > Delete Archive Data:
The hierarchical display of the archive data will appear as in Retrieve, but the option will be only to delete.
