Specifying backup content

At this step select what type of data must be backed up.


Content type

Select whether only data will be backed up (table data, large objects and sequence values), metadata (without table data) or both data and metadata will be added to the backup.



Select the sections names to be included into the backup: pre-data (includes all data definition items), data (includes actual table data, large-object contents, and sequence values) or post-data (includes definitions of indexes, triggers, rules, and constraints other than validated check constraints).
