Resolution
This attached document includes the tasks required to create automated backups of a PSE system.

You can automate the backing up of PowerSCADA Expert (PSE) to include most of the PSE components that will be required to restore a system. PSE passwords and device profiles cannot be automatically backed up. They must be backed up manually. You can find the required procedure for this process starting on page 9.

Note: Some procedures in this document cite scripts you can use to automate the backup and restore process. These scripts are included in the Appendix.
