Mesh Backup

The Mesh Backup tool creates a series of backups of the active mesh. Once that tool is running, it runs in the background and does not interfere with other. Backups will be made of all meshes that are made active and changed while the tool is running.

When the tool is running a Turn on/off auto mesh backup dialog will open. This dialog will not prevent any activity in SMS. When done using the Mesh Backup tool, close this dialog.

Input Parameters

  • Interval – Enter how long between saving backups.
  • Maximum number of backups – The maximum number of backups of unique copies of the mesh saved. The defaults are 20 seconds and 10 copies. That means that every 20 seconds, SMS will compare the active mesh with the last backed up copy. If they are the same no additional backup is made. If they are not the same, a new backup is made. If a new backup is created and the total number of backups for the active mesh now exceeds the specified limit, the oldest backup is deleted.
