Files in the root directory of the drive will be displayed in the right-hand window by clicking the grey icon immediately left of the drive label in the left-hand window. Directories immediately under the root directory can be expanded by clicking the + symbol. Sub-directories can be similarly expanded. File contents of sub-directories can be displayed by clicking the yellow folder icon immediately to the left of the directory name. Individual directories and files can be selected in both left and right-hand windows by clicking the grey selector boxes, as displayed below.
Having selected the directories, ensure the correct

A new description may be entered by typing directly in the
Description field. Once you
have settled on the correct description, click the
Archive button. The Task List
screen will next display as the TSM client constructs a list of local files and inspects them
against a list on the server. Files will then be backed up as illustrated below.
The archive can be halted at any time by clicking the red circle button in the Task List window. A Detailed Status Report, as illustrated below, can be displayed by clicking the centre button in the Task List window.
