SearchStax Backups Management Page

This page lets you manage the backup behavior of this deployment.

To perform a manual backup, click the One-time Backup button at the top of the page. This opens a confirmation dialog:

Click the Backup button to launch an immediate backup event. You may have to refresh the page to see that the backup has finished.

SearchStax Scheduled Backup

Delete a Schedule

Active schedules are listed on the Backup page. Each schedule has an X button on the right. Click this button to delete the schedule.

Any retained backups from that schedule will be kept until you manually delete them.

Delete a Backup

Manual (one-time) backups are retained until deleted by the user.

Scheduled backups are deleted automatically when the retention limit is exceeded. From that point forward, each time the system creates a new backup, it deletes the oldest backup from that set.

Note that retention limits apply to individual days of the schedule. If a backup is scheduled for Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday with retention set to 2, SearchStax will retain two backups for each day, making a total of six.
