You can create a backup of the System database of System settings, user rights and settings, and device configurations, which can be restored in case of failure. If a user creates the backup in the Client, the file is saved as a *.db file. Wisenet WAVE creates a database backup automatically when the product version is updated and when Systems are merged (see "Merging Servers with Another System"). If the backup is created automatically, the file is saved as a *.backup file.

The System database does not include archives, server data, or local settings.

The default database backup location is C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\Hanwha\Hanwha Media Server on Windows and /opt/hanwha/mediaserver/var on Linux.
