Backup and Restore

The content of the hard drive in the switcher can be backed up for archiving, or if you are replacing the hard drive.

Note: The backup and restore should not be used as a method of copying setups between switchers.

Keep the following in mind when working with the restore and backup feature:

  • The backup requires a Linux-compatible USB storage device with at least 25GB of available space. If the drive is not Linux-compatible, you will be prompted to format the drive.
  • Backup and restore can only be performed from a master panel.
  • All panels connected to the switcher during the backup will be unresponsive.
  • Option codes and serial number are not stored with the backup.
  • Only files that are different on the USB drive compared to the hard drive will be backed up or restored.
