DescriptionText1 specifies the first of two lines of a description of an online backup service in the Windows Server Backup menus.

Before an online backup service is installed, Windows displays a description of a recommended online backup service. This text is part of the description.

This description text is added to the resource DLL file that the ResourceDll setting specifies, and may be localized for different regions. For information about how to create localized versions for these settings, see Using the MUI with Applications.

The description text in the resource DLL file must be a text string. For example, the description may resemble the following:

Learn how you can back up your important system files to our servers.



Specifies the resource ID from the resource DLL file for the first of two lines of the description of the online backup service.

ResourceID is an integer.
