To prevent data loss due to hardware or software problems, back up the contents of the Data Analyzer repository.
When you back up a repository, the Reporting Service saves the repository to a binary file, including the repository objects, connection information, and code page information. If you need to recover the repository, you can restore the content of the repository from the backup file.
When you back up the Data Analyzer repository, the Reporting Service stores the file in the backup location specified for the node where the service runs. You specify the backup location when you set up the node. View the general properties of the node to determine the path of the backup directory.
