WIthin the Backup-Tab the user is able to do several Backup actions.



In the upper part, the user is able to Export, Import and Delete Settings and Processes or do a FIrmware-Update. In the lower part the user is able to activate an auto-backup of settings and processes (if the needed licence is purchased).


To export the current settings or processes, the user has to use the "Export" button next to Settings/Processes (processes are also part of the settings). On the right side the buttons will change and allow a selection of a target to export the settings to. Depending on other settings some butons might not be active. For example you need to configure a network location to have an active network-button or enter a USB device to have an active USB-button.

There are 2 internal slots for settings (Factory and Storage 2) located on the ToolScope itself for storing settings.

In addition, settings can be exported to the service area of the ToolScope for easier access over network.


After selecting a target, the user is asked to confirm his decision before the settings are being copied to the desired location.


A firmware update file provided by Komet Brinkhaus can also be applied to the ToolScope at this point. The file needs to be copied to a USB-device or the service area of the ToolScope via network. Afterwards hitting the "Update" button next to "Firmware" will also bring up the right buttons. Here the user can select where the firmware-file is located that should be installed. Only locations with a firmware file will be shown as active buttons.



Within the lower part of the Backup-Tab, the user is able to activate the auto backup of the ToolScope (if the needed licence is purchased).


The user can activate the auto-backup by checking the option "Auto-Backup active". The user can create as many backup jobs as he wants, for example to store the backup files to different locations.

The store the backup files to a network location, this network connection needs to be set up prior to setting up the backup job.

Enter the amount of jobs that should be active and the maximum amount of files and storage space that should be used. Afterwards select the default backup target from the list of network loactions created within the ToolScope.


For each backup job, determine date and time the backup should tke place. A backup to a USB device is theoreticly possible, but currently the ToolScope is still facing issues with "loosing" the USB Device after several days (automatic un-mount).


In case you want to use a backup file to restore a ToolScope, rename the settings file to, copy them to a USB-device and import them as explained in the above section.
