The OnTheNet to be copied into your backup account.button is used to create an initial copy of your data or "seed" on a portable storage device (e.g. a USB key or portable hard drive) which you then send to
You would normally only need to do this if you have a lot of data which is going to take a long time (days or weeks) to seed via the internet.
Note that there may be an additional charge involved in having OnTheNet copy your seed to your backup account.
Please see this page for more information on seeding.
Prior to creating your seed you need to select the data you'd like backed up, which also sets what data is put into your seed. You may have selected the data you'd like backed up when CirroStore was first installed, but you can check and change your selection using the Folders to Backup area.
You'll need to attach a portable storage device large enough to hold your data to your computer, e.g. by plugging in your USB key or portable hard drive.
When you're happy with your data selection, click on thebutton.
