Use a Batch File Process

Set up a batch file that copies the data folder(s) when you want to perform a backup. Shut down Symphony while doing the copy as it puts a huge load on the storage.

This is the fastest option. Shut down Symphony while doing the copy as it puts a huge load on the storage.

 

How to access the stored data
