    You may want to download via FTP (binary mode) in your windows system and then copy via windows to flash drive.

    Hi,

    There are several backup commands you can use on UNIX platforms, but in my example below I use SAPCAR:

    (log in as user <sid>adm)
    cd /usr/sap/trans
    SAPCAR -cvf <backupfile> data/* cofiles/*

    <backupfile> is the full path name of the backup file you want to create
