so that you can easily restore them.

Full Machine Backup

You create and load backup files with the System [F4] drop-down menu. To create a full machine backup:

Selected Machine Data Backup

To back up selected information from your machine:

1. If a USB is used, insert a USB memory device into the [USB] port on the right side of the control pendant. If Net Share is used, make sure Net Share is correctly set up.
2. Using the [LEFT] and [RIGHT] cursors navigate to USB in the Device Manager.
3. Open the destination directory.
4. Press [F4].
5. Select the menu option for the data you want to back up, and press [ENTER].
6. Type a filename in the Save As pop-up menu. Press [ENTER]. The message SAVED is displayed after saving is complete. If the name exists you can overwrite or type a new name.

The file types for backups are listed in the following table.

Note: When you back up settings, the Control does not prompt for a file name. It saves the file in a subdirectory as below:

USB0/machine serial number/CONFIGURATION/machine serial number_us.xml
