Subclient Properties (Content)

Use this tab to define the contents of a new subclient or to change the content of an existing subclient. Databases/storage groups/database files/subsets that are included in subclient content are backed up by the subclient. Note that all the options described in this help may not be available and only the options displayed in the dialog box are applicable to the agent or enabler for which the information is being displayed.
