PRTG Backup Creation.



Your Vote:



Is there a way to create a backup and restore said backup of the database of the PRTG software in case of the server running this software crashes and burns? As long as it has taken me to learn and implement the statewide monitoring the fear of loosing everything is becoming more of a real thing. I have searched a bit online in the manuals, however, I have not seen anything obvious about this topic.

Thank You
