7.3 Backup and Restore

7.3.3 Backup and Restore using ProSave

Requirement
● The HMI device is connected to a PC on which ProSave is installed.
● The data channel is configured on the HMI device.

Procedure for backup


Proceed as follows:
1. From the Windows Start menu, start ProSave on the PC.
2. Select the HMI device type in the "General" tab.
3. Select the type of connection between the HMI device and the PC.
Set the connection parameters.
4. Select the data to be backed up in the "Backup" tab.
5. Select the folder and file name for the backup file "*.psb."
If you are working with the TP 177A with WinCC flexible 2008 or higher and backup
recipes in CSV format, then select a folder. A CSV file is created for each recipe in
this folder.
6. Set "Transfer" mode on the HMI device.
If automatic transfer mode is enabled on the HMI device, the HMI device automatically
sets "Transfer" mode when a backup is initiated.
7. Start the backup operation in ProSave with "Start Backup".
Follow the instructions in ProSave.
A status view opens to indicate the progress of the operation.

Result
The system outputs a message when the backup is completed.
The relevant data is now backed up on the PC.

7.3 Backup and Restore

Procedure for restoring


Proceed as follows:
1. From the Windows Start menu, start ProSave on the PC.
2. Select the HMI device type in the "General" tab.
3. Select the type of connection between the HMI device and the PC.
4. Set the connection parameters.
5. Select the "*.psb" backup file to be restored from the "Restore" tab.
You will receive information for which HMI device the backup file was created and which
type of backup data are available in the file.
If you are working on a TP 177A with WinCC flexible 2008 or higher and want to restore
recipes in CSV format, then select one or more CSV files from the source directory.
6. Set "Transfer" mode on the HMI device.
If automatic transfer mode is enabled on the HMI device, the device automatically sets
"Transfer" mode when a restore operation is initiated.
7. Start the restore operation in ProSave on the PC with "Start Restore".
If there are license keys both on the HMI device and in the backup, a dialog box will
appear. Use this dialog to establish whether you want to overwrite the license keys or
abort the restore process.
– If necessary, abort the backup and first back up the License Keys of the HMI device.
For more information, refer to the section
"Transferring and transferring back license keys (Page 225)".
– Then restart the restore process.
8. Follow the instructions in ProSave.
A status view opens to indicate the progress of the operation.

Result
When the restore is successfully completed, the data backed up on the PC is now on the
HMI device.

Procedure for restoring by resetting to factory settings on the TP 177A


On the TP 177A, when restoring data you can also reset the HMI device to factory settings.
Proceed as follows:
1. Switch off power to the HMI device.
2. Execute steps 1 through 5 as described in "Procedure for restoring".
3. Select the "Bootstrap" check box.
4. Execute steps 7 through 8 as described under "Procedure for restoring".
5. Switch on the power supply of the HMI device.

Result
When the restore is successfully completed, the data backed up on the PC is now on the
HMI device.
The HMI device is reset to factory settings.
