How to run a one-time backup now
Should I avoid manual snapshots?
The Unitrends system may be used to create a point in time backup any time a manual snapshot is required. To run a manual one-time backup, create a backup job just as you would create a backup schedule. In the job detail, you may select to run the job Now rather than creating a schedule.
The Unitrends product uses snapshot technology when performing backups and manual snapshots through a hypervisor, OS issued snapshots and snapshots created from other software vendors should be avoided.
