The Backup function on a switch allows you to save the current configuration settings of the switch onto a file. This backup file can then be used to restore the switch's settings at a later time, which is especially useful if the device becomes unstable or even crashes.


The Restore function enables you to upload a previously saved configuration file to the switch, reinstating all the settings from that file. This is particularly valuable if the device becomes unstable, allowing for a quick return to operational status. Restoring a configuration file will overwrite all current settings.
