Chapter 5. Scheduled Backups
The Scheduled Backup program allows you to back up video data saved in DVR unit hard disks
to a different hard disk at scheduled intervals. Only the administrator ID can activate this option
using the unit information registered under the ID.
Only the SVR-3200/1680/1660/1645/960/945 models support this option.
Backup saves the video data from a hard disk to a different computer.
Using Scheduled Backup, you can schedule backups at your convenience. The backup program
performs the backup operation automatically at the scheduled time.
To start a backup, the Backup program must be running in the background. If the SNM-128S
program is successfully installed, the backup program is listed in the Startup Program list, and
runs automatically each time the system is rebooted.
This Scheduled Backup program can back up the data of only 1 unit per computer, and allows
only 1 administrator to activate the backup operation of the 1 unit.
Backup files are saved in a directory on the backup computer, and can be played through the
SNM-128S search program.

Backup Setup
5.1.1 Backup File
The filename of for backup files is automatically formatted as YYYYMMDD_HH_MM_SS
(Year/Month/Date_Hour_Minute_Second).
Backup files are saved in folders by unit, and the folder name is automatically formatted as
\Backup\Unit Name\. The unit name used for the folder name is identical to the unit name shown
in the left tree. Unit names can be changed by using the Network Manager Configuration Tools.
The names of backup files and folders are immutable and cannot be customized.
5.1.2 Password Setup
This security feature allows you to set a password for backup files so that only users that with
the password can open them.
To set a password, click the [Password] button to open the password input window.
The default password is blank. When setting a password for the first time, leave the current
password section blank and enter only the new password.
101
User's Manual
Password-protected backup files require the password to play the videos in the
[Search] program.
5.1.3 Backup File Retention Period Setup
When backup files are continuously saved in a computer, the hard disk soon fills up and is no
longer able to save backup files. As such, you should either delete old backup files from the
backup computer on a regular basis or manually move them to another storage media such as
tape or optical disc.
To manage backup files effectively, choose a retention date/period for backup files to delete
them automatically when they ‘expire’.
To set a retention date, click the numeric spin buttons under [Retention Period] and adjust the
value. The period can be from 1 day to 365 days with a default value of 5 days.
When the retention period expires, backup files are automatically deleted from the backup
computer. Three different checkpoints for the retention period are provided: first is when the
[Apply] button is clicked after a backup operation is scheduled, and second is when the backup
program starts operating. In these two cases, the backup program counts 24 hours from the
checkpoints to determine the retention period. Last is when a message window appears alerting
that there is insufficient backup space in the hard disk.
In this case, a message window appears prompting you to delete backup files if they have
expired. Clicking OK deletes the expired backup files.
The backup retention period starts counting based on the recording date of the
first frame.
5.1.4 Backup Drive Setup
Select a drive to backup video files. For a hard disk with multiple partitions or a computer with
multiple hard drives, you can choose which drive to use for backups.
102
User's Manual
A combo box appears displaying all drives in the computer with free space information. Select
the drive to backup the video files.
More than one drive can be selected to back up video files. When Drive F, G, and H are
selected, for instance, the backup program starts backing up files to Drive F, and then moves to
G and then H as the drives become full.
Backup files for all cameras are saved in the same drive. Once a backup drive is
selected, every backup file created afterwards is saved to that drive.
You cannot select a different backup drive for each unit.
5.1.5 Auto Removal Setup
Checking this option automatically deletes backup data from the backup hard disk or backup
drives if they do not have enough space. The backup program deletes the oldest backup files
from the hard disk or drives until enough space is freed up.
5.1.6 Backup Data Area Setup
Check which channels should be backed up.
You can select a backup timeline based on the recording time of a video file. You can backup
the video file only within the selected timeline, even if the video file contains data recorded up to
24 hours.
To select a timeline, click the hourly blocks. To deselect an hourly block, click the block again.
Using the channel checkboxes from Ch1 to Ch16 (32), you can backup data from only the
selected channels. All channels are selected by default. Depending on the type and settings of a
unit, checkboxes are enabled only for channels that can be backed up.
To deselect all channels, click Uncheck All.
103
User's Manual
To select all channels, click Select All.
To backup only event data, check the channels and then check [Back Up Event Only].
The Backup Area, Channels, and Event settings apply to all schedules added to
the Backup Schedule table.
5.1.7 Backup Schedule Setup
Select a backup date and time for each camera. Selected backup schedules are displayed in
the Weekly Backup Schedule table.
The Backup Schedule table displays the combined backup schedule for all cameras. Hours that
are scheduled for backup are displayed in a different color. White blocks in the timetable are not
scheduled for backup and available for new schedule.
Placing the cursor on a scheduled hourly block displays the name of the active camera in a
tooltip.
Backup timelines are defined in hour-long blocks. Click white blocks to schedule those hours for
backup. To deselect an hourly block, click the block again. The Backup tasks run weekly for
each backup block. e.g. If 08pm to 12 midnight on Monday are scheduled for backup , for
instance, the Backup program performs the backup operation every Monday.
To run daily backups, schedule a backup on the Daily timetable. When a backup is scheduled
on the Daily timetable, the Backup program performs the backup operation for the selected time
every day except Sunday. Hours scheduled for daily backup cannot be scheduled with weekly
operations. To backup on a weekly basis, select a day and then timelines.
The Backup program performs backups only during scheduled hours. Backups are aborted—
even if not all data is backed up—when the scheduled duration expires; backups then move on
to another backup operation.

background, displaying the Backup program icon in the Taskbar Notification Area (system tray).
While a backup running, the icon displays the backup progress.
To open the program menu, right click on the icon in the system tray.
Choose [Open] to display the progress of the current backup. Selecting [Close] cancels the
Backup program running in the background.

5.1.9 Creating Backup File
A backup file is created once every hour per unit.
While backups are running, if the connection between a unit and the backup computer is broken,
the Backup program continues trying to reconnect. If a connection is re-established, the
program continues the backup and creates another backup file with a different name.
Backups begin at 00 minutes of the hour, and finish at 59 minutes of the hour.
If the Current Time Zone settings change during a backup operation, the Backup
program aborts and restarts the current operation.
