Figure  5.3  
 
 
Step  1:  enter  Project  information.  
 
[Project  name]:  the  name  must  be  unique  and  not  the  same  if  you  have  multiple  projects.    Backup  data  is  
saved  under  project  name.    So,  projects  must  not  have  the  same  name.  
[Comment]:  you  can  fill  in  information  about  this  project.  
 
The  functions  inside  red  box  shown  in  figure  5.3:  
[Delete  former  copy  before  Tasks  starts]:  previous  backup  copy  file  is  automatically  removed  and  
replaced  with  the  new  backup  copy.    Backup  project  only  has  one  backup  copy.    Do  not  enable  this  option  
if  you  wish  to  keep  every  backup  copy  when  backup  is  performed.  
[Compress  backup]:  backup  file  is  compressed  and  saved.    Please  note  that  original  files  are  compressed  
instead  of  compressing  all  files  into  one  single  file.  
Password:  password  protection  for  your  compressed  project  backup  file.    When  enabled,  enter  the  same  
password  you  wish  to  use  in  both  Password  and  Confirm  fields.    Please  note  when  password  is  enabled,  if  
password  is  lost,  it  would  be  unable  to  restore  the  backup.
