  • thank you, but where the backups are stored by default?
    • They are stored in a FTP share on the K1000 drive, behind a username and password (kbftp and getbxf respectively). To my knowledge, the location cannot be changed.

      There is also a patch that support can apply to give you a different share for backups. I believe it will make then not need the FTP login.
  • In the FTP, there are 2 folders, one name "client" and the another one name "clientdrop" by default. I have acces to client but not to clientdrop.It ask me a login and password. But what the login and password? Because I put my admin login from kace it doesn't work
  • the clientdrop can be accessed via your local admin credentials (user admin)
    Both link to the same share but clientdrop is a r/w

If you're asking where you can go to download your backups, it's under Settings > Control Panel > Backup and Restore. There are 2 backup files, a database backup and a file backup. You'll need both if you ever want to manually restore your K1000. The K1000 is configured to use one of its volumes as a backup disk. To my knowledge you cannot directly manipulate this volume. As Nico pointed out you may leverage a FTP backup to an external source if you want more control over the backup management. I hope this answers your question.
