This step adds the Hyper Backup application to the main menu and installs a service.

Configuration

In Hyper Backup, you create one or more backup tasks. There are two types of tasks, the Data backup task and the LUN backup task, and each data backup task has its definition of folders, applications, and schedules.

You can choose from 18 destinations for a data backup task, divided into three groups: Synology, File Server, and Cloud Service.

When you choose another Synology NAS as a destination, install Hyper Backup Vault on the destination NAS.

Logging and notification

Hyper Backup has its logging. For notifications, it uses the DSM configuration that you can set up in Control Panel > Notification. On the Advanced tab, you can configure the messages that are backup-related.
