You delete a backup set from the db_backup folder of the Enterprise Server or Enterprise Central when you no longer need the backup set.
Backup sets are compressed backup files used for restoring data. The EcoStruxure Building Operation software stores the local backup set for an Enterprise Server or SmartX servers in the Local folder within the Backup sets folder.
Backup sets are stored in different locations for stand-alone systems and multi-server systems.
For more information, see Location of Backup Sets .
The EcoStruxure Building Operation software associates each backup set with a particular EcoStruxure BMS server name. Therefore, you should not rename an EcoStruxure BMS server unless absolutely necessary. If you do rename an EcoStruxure BMS server, the previous backup sets do not display in the Restore Options dialog box. You can view all the backup sets that are stored locally on an Enterprise Server. For more information, see Locating the Local Backup Path on the Enterprise Server or Enterprise Central .
Going forward, you must create new backups for the renamed EcoStruxure BMS server.
EcoStruxure BMS servers store backup sets in their local directories. By design, the average user may not easily locate these backup directories using a Windows-based file system. For convenience, you can save backup sets stored on EcoStruxure BMS servers to WorkStation. After saving the backup set, you can also copy the file to another backup storage location.
For more information, see Backup Set Storage and Protection .
You import a backup set from WorkStation to replace a lost or incomplete backup set, or to add a backup set to a new EcoStruxure BMS server.
For more information, see Backup Set Import from WorkStation .
An Enterprise Server stores multiple local and remote backup sets. As a result, these sets can consume much needed space on the Enterprise Server. To resolve this problem, you can configure the Enterprise Server to remove outdated backup sets.
For more information, see Automatic Purge of Backup Sets .
