Backup Hetzner Servers

Make sure you have connected Hetzner to your SnapShooter Account

1. Login to SnapShooter

2. Navigate to Hetzner

3. Make sure you are on the Inactive tab

4. Press Activate on the server you want

You will be asked to choose how often you would like to backup your server.

Depending on your plan, you can choose between daily and hourly backups.

You can also choose the timezone you wish the backup to happen as well as the start time.

If you backup more than once a day we will count your timezone and daily backup time as the tag for the daily backup.

Retention Policy

Once you press Next you will be taken to the retention policy screen where you can select how many past backups you wish to keep. When we take a backup we tag them daily, weekly and monthly and you can choose how many of the past of each you want to keep.

In this example we have asked SnapShooter

  1. Keep the last 10 '3 hourly' backups

  2. Keep the last 7 'daily' backups

  3. Keep the last 4 'weekly' backups

  4. Keep the last 12 'monthly' backups.

Most of our customers choose 7 days, 4 weeks and 12 months as a good base line for backups.
