Making backups of critical data is essential in a data processing installation. DBUTLTY provides functions to create backups of the Directory (CXX), any database, or any data area within a database.
Make frequent backups of the Directory (CXX). If a hardware malfunction occurs during maintenance with the CXXMAINT function, you can re-create the Directory using the backup. You can make a backup of the Directory (CXX) at any time.
A backup of the Directory is the first step in moving the Directory to a different disk drive or to a disk drive of a different device type.
DBUTLTY provides several options for creating a backup of a data area. Creating a backup in Native Key sequence is the first step in reorganizing a data area. When using Native Key sequence you can do a 
parallel backup.
