1. To increase history storage size to 1 year, you have to estimate the disk size for history data storage using Disk Estimation sheet "2PAA111220_-_en_800xA_History_2.0_System_Size_Estimation_Sheet.xls
m" available in ABB Download Center.

2. So far we don't have procedure to append history data to the existing history database.

3. Page 166 in the document "2PAA107563-200_B_en_800xA_History_2.0_RU2_Administration_and_Confi
gurati..." explains the History RTDB database backup restore procedure which can be perform as same to get back the stored history data in case of disk failure or any failure condition.

With the limited data provided, I am assuming that you are running 800xA SV 5.1 FP4 RevE, and that the History is v. 2.0 RU3, so that all relevant updates are present for the History. The manual 2PAA107563-200 C contains the procedures necessary for Backup and Restore of the Database. The version of the manual has this information starting on page 179.
