Backing up and Recovering Your ix2 Network Storage Settings

Backing Up Your ix2 Network Storage Settings

The Configuration Backup and Restore page allows you to back up and restore system configuration
information. Backing up a configuration saves various system properties, including users, groups, device
identification, and Share names and permissions. Configuration information is saved to a file, and you can
save as many versions of the file as you want. After backing up the configuration, you can restore it to your
ix2 at any time. You can also apply the configuration backup to other ix2 devices, effectively using the
configuration as a template.
Configuration Backup and Restore does not back up or restore any data files on your ix2.

Backing up Device Configuration

On the Configuration Backup and Restore page, click
name and location for your configuration backup.
Save the configuration file to an external device, such as your computer or a USB drive. You can
save as many configuration backups as you want.

backup stored on your computer or USB device.

configuration restore operation starts automatically after you click Apply in the Restore

stop the configuration restore process.
