How to change where backups are stored
By default, backups are stored in a subdirectory where Apex is installed. However, this storage location can be changed to a different hard drive or to a mapped network drive, as examples.
The configuration backup files are stored in a ZIP archive. Each backup produces one ZIP archive file, and its total compressed size is less than 100 KB.
To change where backups are stored:
1. In the web interface, click System > Backup & Restore.
2. Click the preferences icon .
3. Type a different directory path in the Configuration backup location box.
4. Click the accept icon .
 
You successfully changed the storage location for your backups.
