Open the ReadyNAS Vault menu from the system tray (where the time is shown) on a PC or Menu bar on Mac.
Navigate to "Actions" and then "Add/Edit Backups." This will open the "Manage Backups" window.
Click "New Backup" to add a backup.
Set the name for your backup in the "Name" field.
Click "Add Folder" to add the location of the folder(s) you would like to backup.
You can also choose to back up only specific types of files within a folder, i.e. jpeg, .png, .doc, etc. Click on "Include only the following types" to configure this option (separate each extension with a comma ",").
The frequency of the automatic backup can be modified in the "Scheduling" tab.
You may also exclude any child folder within a parent folder using the "Exclusions" tab. Files may also be excluded by file type.
Once you are finished with configuring these settings, click "Save" to run the new backups.
