Creating an SFS Turbo Backup

This section describes how to quickly create an SFS Turbo file system backup.

During the SFS Turbo file system backup, the performance of the file system is not affected. To ensure data integrity, back up the file system during off-peak hours when no write operation is performed on the file system.


A file system can be backed up only when its status is Available or In-use. If you have performed operations such as expanding, mounting, unmounting, or deleting a file system, refresh the page first to ensure that the operation is complete and then determine whether to back up the file system.


  1. Log in to CBR Console.

    1. Log in to the management console.
    2. Click in the upper left corner and select your region and project.
    3. Choose Storage > Cloud Backup and Recovery > SFS Turbo Backups.

  2. On the SFS Turbo Backups page, click the Vaults tab and find the vault to which the file system is associated.
  3. Choose More > Perform Backup in the Operation column. In the file system list, select the file system to be backed up. After a file system is selected, it is added to the list of selected file systems. See Figure 1.

  4. Set the Name and Description for the backup. Table 1 describes the parameters.

    Table 1 Parameter description





    Name of the backup you are creating.

    A name must contain 1 to 64 characters including digits, letters, underscores (_), or hyphens (-).


    You can use the default name, which is in the format of manualbk_xxxx.

    If multiple file systems are to be backed up, the system automatically adds suffixes to their backup names, for example, backup-0001 and backup-0002.



    Description of the backup.

    It cannot exceed 255 characters.


  5. (Optional) You can also click the vault name to open the detailed page of the vault. On the Associated File Systems tab page, locate the target file system. Click Perform Backup in the Operation column of the file system. See Figure 2.

  6. Click Yes. The system automatically creates a backup for the file system.

    On the Backups tab page, if the status of the backup is Available, the backup task is successful.

    If you delete files from the file system during the backup, backup of the deleted files may fail. To ensure data integrity, you are advised to wait until the backup task is complete and then delete data and perform a backup again.

    After the backup is complete, you can create a new SFS Turbo file system using the backup. For details, see Using a Backup to Create a File System.
