The backup configuration has the following properties:
Is ActiveDetermines whether backups shall automatically be created.
FrequencyThe frequency in which backups shall be created.
Destination DirectoryThe local or UNC path to the directory in which to store backups. The 
Service Account
 needs to have write access to that directory.
