Backup and Restoration

Synology Backup and Restoration

With Hyper Backup and Restoration, back up the Drive to a local or remote destination and restore packet settings and data to the previous time point. You need to install Hyper Backup 2.1.0 or higher from the DSM> Package Center to use this service. 

Because the Synology Office files are managed in Drive, instructions on how to back up and restore Office packages are also included in the section below. To back up Drive and Office: Go to DSM> Hyper Backup to create a backup task. Follow the wizard and select Drive and Office when you are asked to select the application to be backed up.

 After the backup task has been successfully created, the following data will be backed up: Files and folders, Permissions settings for each file and folder, Labels, Stars, To restore Drive and Office: Go to DSM> Hyper Backup to restore the desired backup task. Settings and data currently in Drive and Office will be overwritten after recovery is complete in Backup and Restoration. 

For more information about the operations mentioned above, please read the Hyper Backup> Data Backup Help article> Create a Backup Task. Synology Office files are stored in the Office database. Therefore, we recommend that you back up / restore Drive and Office simultaneously.

(Synology Office files will not be backed up or restored if you only choose the Drive package.) There should not be less volume in the recovery destination than at the source. The deleted user's personal profile will not be restored.

Backup and Restoration

Backup is the process of making a copy of information to use if the original copy is lost or damaged. Copies are usually transferred to the backup media; that is, virtual tape files, which are disk space allocations that act as tape devices, or any physical backup devices supported by Windows, including the following.

Recording CD-ROM (CDR), disc media and removable, in Tape (including Digital Linear Tape (DLT)). Virtual tape device (virtual ribbon link or virtual ribbon file). In the next text, the term backup media or media will be used to include all of these backup and recovery devices. Backing up files on backup media is an important part of protecting data and ensuring file integrity. 

If the file is deleted accidentally or if the data is corrupted, you can restore the latest file version from the backup media. In general, system administrators at each site must establish routine backup procedures for the entire system. However, application programmers must know enough about this procedure to understand what is supported and at what frequency. 

The MVBase system also supports the updating and recording of transactions. Transaction recording is a method for continuously backing up the system. This records changes made to the file when the changes are made, and then writes changes to the backup media. Renewal and recording of transactions provide an automatic audit trail. 

Accidental data loss can be traced to certain situations and reversed by simply returning the data to a condition known before the accident. The process of recording items and updating files is called update logging. Processing the transaction update and writing it to a backup media is recording the actual transaction. 

Updates and recording transactions can be done on a system basis or can be determined for the selected file. If your system uses transaction updates and records, see Transaction Updates and Records in the mvBase Operation and Administration Guide with Backup and Restoration.
