Configuring a backup with password encryption

When you select the "Use Encryption" backup option, CitectSCADA writes the project to disk in a format that encodes the password. The project can only be restored when the password is entered.

To use encryption:

  1. Select the "Use encryption" option on the Backup Project dialog box.
  2. Click OK. The Backup/Restore-Encryption dialog displays:
  3. In the Enter Password field, enter your password. Asterisks will display in place of the characters.
  4. In the Re-Enter Password field, re-enter your password. CitectSCADA checks that you have typed the same password both times.
  5. Click OK. The project will be backed up.
