Image backup and recovery


Image backup and recovery allows you to save the current state of your Utility and Sandbox instances and any associated application properties. Backups can be performed either manually on demand or as a scheduled task. At present the system supports five manual backups per instance type (Utility or Sandbox), after which you will need to delete old backups if you wish to create a new one. Scheduled backups are limited to two backups per instance type and these are configured to operate on a rolling program, where oldest backup is automatically deleted whenever a new backup image is created. To enable backups just email [support@fra.me](mailto:support@fra.me) and we will take care of it for you. Make sure you specify whether you want manual backups, scheduled backups, or both. Once enabled, a new section of the Frame Dashboard is activated where you can take backups on demand and configure scheduled backups from the Sandbox and Utility tabs on the Frame Dashboard.
