Improved Nodegrid UI for backup

Improved Nodegrid UI for backup

New for Nodegrid 6.0, the user interface for Nodegrid Save Settings (backup) is improved.  Previously, the backup option from System::Toolkit::Save_Settings would save backups to the main disk to the root location /backup when you select "Local System" as a destination.  This location is inaccessible to the admin user from the UI or from the shell, a user would have to elevate to root user to access the backup file.

Nodegrid 6.0 now saves this to an "admin" friendly location for which the admin can download to his system using the File Manager if or access the file from the shell.

From the Shell
