Create a backup policy

A backup policy defines how and when PDS will take a backup, as well as how many backups PDS will retain on the backup target.

There’s no way to perform ad-hoc backups. Backup operations occur only when scheduled.


  • PDS account Admin privileges


  1. From the Backups, Policies tab in the Settings page, select the Add button.

  2. Name your backup policy

  3. Create as many schedules as desired, specify:

    • A Cron expression

    • The number of backups you wish to retain

  4. Select Submit
