PureDisk policy - cant't delete data selection

Created: 19 Jul 2010 | 1 comment

I have created a policy for System state and services. For some reason this has been implemented with two data selections. One from the autogenerated "agent SSC data selection" and one that I have created myself. The data selections are exactly the same, except for the name, which is the reason for creating this. But then I always run two identical backups, which is not needed. But when I in the manage policy window tries to deselect the unwanted data selection it's not possible. The box is deselected but after saving the change it's back. But now with a black colour instead of green.  Any ideas om what is needed to deselect?

Hi

One gets created when you create a "Full System Backup" policy automatically aswell as a second Data selection to backup all files. If you created the first this way then delete the one you manually created under "System State and Services Backup" . Its effectively the same thing.

You can create the System state backup manually if you want to combine it with say Files and Folders backup where you may not want to backup the entire server (reduces the amount of Front End data you are storing)

When you create a Full System Backup, the data selections dont appear until after you run an initial run of the policy. You can rename them after that has been done.
