The KACE K1000 appliance automatic nightly backup saves files on the backup drive: yyyymmdd_k1_dbdata.gz, containing the database backups and yyyymmdd_kbox_file.tgz, containing any files and packages you have uploaded to the KACE K1000 appliance (where yyymmdd is the year, month, and day of the backup). The backup files are used to restore your KACE K1000 appliance configuration in the event of a data loss or during an upgrade or migration to new hardware. The KACE K1000 appliance has built-in ability to restore from any recent backup directly off of the backup drive. For an additional level of recoverability, you may want to offload your backups to another location. The backup files can be downloaded either through your browser using the links to the backup files on the KACE K1000 appliance Settings->Control Panel tab, or by ftp using the following commands:
C:\> ftp kbox
> type binary
> get kbox_dbdata.gz
> get kbox_file.tgz
With the change in the backup scheme in the KACE K1000 appliance version 5.2 and newer, kbox_dbdata.gz maps to the most recent database backup file created, and kbox_file.tgz will map to the most recent file backup file created.
