 +<​html>​
 +This article outlines the process on how to perform the initial backup to a removable hard drive, then import the data onto AhsayCBS, bypassing the Internet.
 + <​br/>​
 + <​br/>​
 + Note: This process is called "Seed Load" in version 6.

 +
 +
 +===== Steps =====
 +<​html>​
 + Refer to the following steps for details:
 + <​br/>​
 + <​br/>​
 +
 +
 + <​b>​
 +  1. First, configure the backup set to perform the initial backup to a local destination (e.g. the removable hard drive).
 + </​b>​
 + <​br/>​
 + <​ul>​
 +  <​li><​font color=black>​
 +   Login to the AhsayOBM / ACB client user interface.
 +   <​br/>​
 +   <​br/>​
 +  </​font></​li>​
 +  <​li><​font color=black>​
 +   ​Select the '​Backup Sets' tile, then the corresponding backup set:
 +   <​br><​br>​
 +      <img style="​width:​20%;​ border:thin solid black" src="​http://​wiki.ahsay.com/​lib/​exe/​fetch.php?​media=public:​5152_0.png"/>​
 +   <​br/>​
 +   <​br/>​
 +  </​font></​li>​
 +  <​li><​font color=black>​
 +   ​Select '​Destination',​ then click '​Add':​
 +   <​br/>​
 +   <​br/>​
 +   Note: This assumed that the '​import destination',​ in this case CBS had already been added to the backup set.
 +   <​br><​br>​
 +      <img style="​width:​75%;​ border:thin solid black" src="​http://​wiki.ahsay.com/​lib/​exe/​fetch.php?​media=public:​5152_1.png"/>​
 +   <​br/>​
 +   <​br/>​
 +  </​font></​li>​
 +  <​li><​font color=black>​
 +   From the '​Destination storage'​ dropdown menu, select 'Local / Mapped Drive / Removable Drive'​.
 +   <​br/>​
 +   <​br/>​
 +  </​font></​li>​
 +  <​li><​font color=black>​
 +   ​Ensure that the destination type is set to '​Single storage destination',​ then click the '​Change'​ button to browse to the removable hard drive:
 +   <​br><​br>​
 +      <img style="​width:​75%;​ border:thin solid black" src="​http://​wiki.ahsay.com/​lib/​exe/​fetch.php?​media=public:​5152_2.png"/>​
 +   <​br/>​
 +   <​br/>​
 +  </​font></​li>​
 +  <​li><​font color=black>​
 +   Press '​OK',​ then '​Save'​.
 +   <​br/>​
 +   <​br/>​
 +  </​font></​li>​
 +  <​li><​font color=black>​
 +   Make sure that the '​import destination'​ and the 'local destination'​ are added:
 +   <​br><​br>​
 +      <img style="​width:​75%;​ border:thin solid black" src="​http://​wiki.ahsay.com/​lib/​exe/​fetch.php?​media=public:​5152_3.png"/>​
 +  </​font></​li>​
 + </​ul>​
 + <​br/>​
 +
 +
 +
 + <​b>​
 +  2. Next, perform the initial backup to the local destination (e.g. the removable hard drive).
 + </​b>​
 + <​br/>​
 + <​br/>​
 + <​ul>​
 +  <​li><​font color=black>​
 +   In the client user interface, select the '​Backup'​ tile:
 +   <​br><​br>​
 +      <img style="​width:​20%;​ border:thin solid black" src="​http://​wiki.ahsay.com/​lib/​exe/​fetch.php?​media=public:​5152_4.png"/>​
 +   <​br/>​
 +   <​br/>​
 +  </​font></​li>​
 +  <​li><​font color=black>​
 +   ​Select the corresponding backup set for backup:
 +   <​br><​br>​
 +      <img style="​width:​75%;​ border:thin solid black" src="​http://​wiki.ahsay.com/​lib/​exe/​fetch.php?​media=public:​5152_5.png"/>​
 +   <​br/>​
 +   <​br/>​
 +  </​font></​li>​
 +  <​li><​font color=black>​
 +   Click on the 'Show advanced option'​ button, ensure that the '​In-File Delta' type is set to '​Full'​.
 +   <​br/>​
 +   <​br/>​
 +  </​font></​li>​
 +  <​li><​font color=black>​
 +   Under '​Destination',​ deselect all destinations except for the newly created local destination:​
 +   <​br><​br>​
 +      <img style="​width:​75%;​ border:thin solid black" src="​http://​wiki.ahsay.com/​lib/​exe/​fetch.php?​media=public:​5152_6.png"/>​
 +   <​br/>​
 +   <​br/>​
 +  </​font></​li>​
 +  <​li><​font color=black>​
 +   Click '​Backup'​ to start the initial backup.
 +  </​font></​li>​
 + </​ul>​
 + <​br/>​
 +
 +
 +
 + <​b>​
 +  3. Import the data from the local destination (e.g. the removable hard drive) to the AhsayCBS server.
 + </​b>​
 + <​br/>​
 + <​br/>​
 + <​ul>​
 +  <​li><​font color=black>​
 +   Copy the data (the entire '​blocks'​ folder) from the removable drive at:
 +   <​br/>​
 +   <​br/>​
 +   ​%Local_Destination%\<​font color=#​FF0000>​%backupset_id%\blocks\*</​font>​
 +   <​br/>​
 +   <​br/>​
 +   to the user home path of the corresponding backup user at:
 +   <​br/>​
 +   <​br/>​
 +   ​%User_Home%\username\<​font color=#​FF0000>​%backupset_id%\</​font>​
 +   <​br><​br>​
 +      <img src="​http://​wiki.ahsay.com/​lib/​exe/​fetch.php?​media=public:​5152_7.png"​ style="​border:​thin solid black"/>​
 +   <​br/>​
 +   <​br/>​
 +   For example:
 +   <​br/>​
 +   <​br/>​
 +   ​%Seedload_Destination%\1461745430428\blocks\*
 +   <​br/>​
 +   <​br/>​
 +   to
 +   <​br/>​
 +   <​br/>​
 +   ​%User_Home%\username\1461745430428\blocks\*
 +   <​br/>​
 +   <​br/>​
 +   <​font color=#​FF0000><​b>​Important:</​b>​ Do not perform another backup job while the data are being copied from the removable hard drive to the user home path on AhsayCBS.
 +    </​font>​
 +    <br/>
 +    <br/>
 +    Administrator can:
 +    <br/>
 +    <br/>
 +    <ul>
 +     <​li><​font color=black>​
 +      Temporarily suspend the backup user while the data are being copied, and
 +     </​font></​li>​
 +     <​li><​font color=black>​
 +      Temporarily disable the backup schedule(s) of the corresponding backup set.
 +     </​font></​li>​
 +    </ul>
 +   </​b>​
 +  </​font></​li>​
 + </​ul>​
 + <​br>​
 +
 +
 + <​b>​
 +  4. Perform a Data Integrity Check for the corresponding backup set.
 + </​b>​
 + <​br/>​
 + <​br/>​
 + <​ul>​
 +  <​li><​font color=black>​
 +  Login to the AhsayOBM / ACB client user interface.</​font></​li>​
 +  <br>
 +  ​
 +  <​li><​font color=black>​
 +  Select the '​Utilities'​ tile, "Data Integrity Check",​ then the corresponding backup set and backup destination.</​font></​li>​
 +  <br>
 +  ​
 +  <​li><​font color=black>​
 +  Enable "​Rebuild index",​ then click "​Start":​
 +  <​br><​br>​
 +  <img style="​width:​75%;​ border:thin solid black" src="​http://​wiki.ahsay.com/​lib/​exe/​fetch.php?​media=public:​DIC_seedload.png"/>​
 +
 +</​font></​li>​
 + </​ul>​
 +<br>
 +
 +
 + <​b>​
 +  5. The import procedure is completed.
 + </​b>​
 + <​br/>​
 + <​br/>​
 + <​ul>​
 +  <​li><​font color=black>​
 +   ​Re-enable the backup user and / or backup schedule(s),​ then remove the local destination (e.g. the removable hard drive) afterward:
 +   <​br><​br>​
 +      <img style="​width:​75%;​ border:thin solid black" src="​http://​wiki.ahsay.com/​lib/​exe/​fetch.php?​media=public:​5152_8.png"/>​
 +  </​font></​li>​
 + </​ul>​
 + <​font color=#​FF0000><​b>​Important:</​b>​ It is strongly recommended that all backup sets are configured to backup to multiple backup destinations,​ to provide user with data redundancy and backup / restore flexibility.
