    verbs to use with a word "backup"

    Hello,

    Noun "backup" can be also used in a sense of "a second copy of data", e.g. a database backup. Then it can refer to the copy itself (media) as well as to a process of doing a copy.
    I am very interested in what verb suits the best to word "backup" in the latter meaning:

    - perform a database backup
    - carry out a database backup
    - do a database backup
    - execute a database backup
    - make a database backup

    Regards,
    sokla
