  2. From the Bucket drop-down list, select a bucket.
  3. In the Select Folder field, select a cloud folder where the data will be stored. To do it, click Browse and select an existing folder.
  4. If the folder contains encrypted backups, select the Use this password for encrypted backups check box and provide a password.

For more information about encryption, see Encryption.


Mind the following:

  • Only Standard storage class is supported.
