Creating an Image Backup Set

This page will help you create an Image backup set from the management portal.  Before attempting to make an Image backup set, you may want to consult with our Technical Specifications page to make sure the system you are attempting to backup is compatible.

Note - You cannot image dynamic volumes with the Intronis software. Only basic, NTFS volumes can be backed up with Image backup sets.



  1. Log into the management portal andimagepage1.png navigate to the computer account you want to add an Image backup set to.

  2. On the Computer page, go to the Backup tab and hit Add Backup Set.

  3. The Create Backup Set window will open.  Here, pick Images as the backup set type and give the backup set a name.  Then, click Next.

  4. On the next pageimagepage2.png, called Select, choose which volumes you want to include in this Image backup set.

    If you intend on being able to use this backup set for a BMR restore, you must include the boot volume(s).  Also, if you select all of the volumes or drives on the computer, you will need either network-attached storage or removable storage available to back up to.

    If a volume is grayed-out in the list, it may be selected in another image backup or may not be a supported disk type.

    Click Next when you are done.

  5. On the Schedule page,imagepage3.png you can set the backup schedule for the Image backup set.  More information about scheduling backups can be found here.  Click Next when you are done.

  6. On the Settings page, imagepage4.pngyou can specify the number of revisions you want to keep, where you want to keep them, and the temporary folder location.

    The temporary folder only requires a few GBs of free space to conduct the backup.  For the Backup Destination it is advised you keep the backups somewhere separate from the computer you are backing up; if the backed-up computer dies, you want to have the Image backups readily accessible.  Furthermore, if you plan on using the Rapid Recovery feature of Image backups, it is advised you store the images on the Hyper-V host you intend to restore to.

    The Backup Destination you specify will be populated with a Local Storage folder, similar to the Local Vault, where the Image backup data is stored.

    Click Next when you are done.

  7. The final page will give you a summary of the image backup you have just made.  If everything looks good, click Create to finalize the backup set creation.
