The Where to Backup wizard screen defines where the backup will be stored. To choose a storage device during backup job creation/editing select Where to backup from the left navigation menu in the backup wizard. Make sure you can write in the destination and the selected folder (you have the proper rights and the media is not write-protected).
GMB is the only backup software that grants users the flexibility of choosing between all the following storage destinations without the need for purchasing and installing extra plugins or add-ons:
External and Internal hard disks.
Across network (Shared network locations, SAN devices, NAS devices, etc.).
Memory Sticks (Flash memory).
CD/DVD media (all formats - DVD±RW/DVD±R/DVD-RAM/CD-R/CD-RW), including Blu-ray.
Removable media devices (REV, floppy disks, ZIP disks, JAZ etc ...)
Remote locations using FTP service.
For each backup run, a new index (".gbp file") is created in the destination folder, containing the backup job's catalog as well as other information necessary for Genie Mail Backup to be able to restore data automatically. If this file is lost, GMB will not be able to restore data, and the user will only be able to manually access the files and folders stored in the archive. The catalog is also stored locally to enable offline browsing of the data stored in the backup (even if the storage media is not loaded), as well as file versioning information.
If the backup destination drive/device is missing or disconnected when backup starts, Genie Mail Backup will display a warning message saying that there is not enough space on the destination, and backup will be aborted.
In easy mode, backing up to Local/LAN is only supported
