Backing up the TM1 data folder with Pulse

When executing a migration package, there is an option to Backup Data Directory.

When ticked Pulse will first run a Save Data All then create a zip file of the whole data directory. This provides backup in case the migration fails.

The default backup directory folder is <Pulse installation directory>Pulse for TM1backup
