You can use Hybrid Backup Recovery (HBR) to back up shares of Cloud Storage Gateway (CSG). You can then restore the shares if they are lost or damaged. This topic describes how to back up shares of a gateway.

Prerequisites

Preparations are completed.

Procedure

  1. Log on to the HBR console.
  2. Select the region where the gateway resides.
  3. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Backup > CSG Backup.
  4. On the Storage Gateways tab, find the gateway, and click Back Up in the Actions column.
  5. In the Select Source step, select the share that you want to back up. Click Next.
  6. In the Configure Plan step, set the parameters and click OK. The following table describes the parameters.
    Parameter Description
    Source Paths
    • The paths to the source files. Enter a maximum of eight paths.
    • Each source path must be an absolute path.
    • Uniform Naming Convention (UNC) paths are supported.
    • Separate each path with a carriage return.
    Plan Name The name of the backup plan. By default, a random name is used.
    Retention Period The retention period of the backup data. Unit: days, weeks, months, or years.
    Start Time The start time of the backup plan. The time is accurate to seconds.
    Backup Interval The interval at which data backup is performed. Unit: hours, days, or weeks.
    Throttle Bandwidth Specifies whether to throttle the bandwidth. You can throttle the bandwidth that is used for data backup during peak hours. This guarantees business continuity. If you select Yes, you must set the Throttling Period (Hour) and Max Bandwidth parameters. Then, click Add.

Query files that are backed up

In the HBR console, you can query the list of files that are backed up in each backup plan.

  1. On the Backup Plans and Jobs tab, find the backup plan, and click View in the Actions column.
  2. On the page that appears, click Browser in the Actions column that corresponds to a source path.
    In the Browse dialog box, view all files in the source path.
    Notice In this dialog box, you can only query the files in the source path but cannot restore the files. For more information, see Restore shares of a gateway.

What to do next

On the Backup Plans and Jobs page, you can perform the following operations on a backup plan.
