If the backup was successfully created, you will receive a confirmation message and the new backup will be visible in the list of backups on the main Backups screen. Select Dismiss to close the message.
If the backup could not be successfully created, you will receive an error message indicating that the backup creation failed and it will no longer be listed on the main Backups screen. Select Dismiss to close the message and proceed to try creating the backup again.
