The file described below is necessary for recovering the Fingerprint authentication data. Back up this file periodically in a safe
location such as removable disk to avoid data loss resulting from some accidents. We recommend you to store the file in a
removable disk or network drive because the benefit of Fingerprint authentication security can be reduced if you keep the file
in the internal hard disk drive.
The backup password described below is necessary for bypassing the Fingerprint authentication. We recommend you set the
backup password using the [User Enrollment] wizard. If you do not define the backup password, you may lose your data in
case of authentication hardware failure.
