The SAP Control Center embedded repository stores information related to managed resources, as well as user preference data, operational data, and statistics.

You can back up the repository database on demand, schedule automatic backups, restore the repository from backups, and configure repository purging options. Full and incremental backups are available. A full backup copies the entire repository. An incremental backup copies the transaction log, capturing any changes since the last full or incremental backup.

By default, SAP Control Center saves backups as follows:

SAP recommends that you periodically move backup files to a secondary storage location to prevent the installation directory from becoming too large.
