Changing the backup folder (backup order) is not applied.


If you want to change the backup folder for databases in the Server Manager via Manage -> Server Settings -> Additional-> Backup folder, please note the following information:

Backup of password databases and configuration files is extremely important function and must be free from any possible failures. If Password Depot Enterprise Server cannot create a backup into the user defined backup folder for any reason, then the target path is automatically reverted to the default value (\Backups\). 

When you plan to change the default backup folder location, please take into account the following:

  • For performance reasons using of a local HDD/SSD is preferred than network or removable drives.

  • Password Depot Enterprise Server is usually running as a Windows service under SYSTEM account, and thus that account must have full read/write access to the target folder.

  • If you want to use a network share or mapped drive, make sure the SYSTEM account can access that location on the system startup. In some cases might be helpful to change start type for Password Depot service from  “Automatic” to “Automatic (Delayed start)”.
