4. Backing up selected files & directories
To backup one or more local files or directories, start the TSM GUI, click the
Backup files and directories button and expand the view of local drives by clicking the adjacent + symbol.
Files in the root directory of the file system will be displayed in the right-hand window by clicking
the grey icon immediately left of the file system mount point in the left-hand window. Directories
immediately under the file system mount point can be expanded by clicking the + symbol. Sub-directories
can be similarly expanded. File contents of sub-directories can be displayed by clicking the grey 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.
On Clicking the
Backup button the backup of the selected objects will proceed in the
same way as if backing up an entire partition - see 3. Backing up your local disks.
