FileMaker Server 17 Backup. Container Data?

I'm working through the Ins and Outs of FMS 17.  I set up a Full Back up for a folder of files with external container data.  In the Data folder the container data is in the usual place  ..\RC_Data_FMS

 

The backup folder in FMS17 does not have the RC_Data_FMS folder.

 

Is FMS 17 not backing up the container data?  Is it importing it back into the database?

 

My usual server backup strategy is to exclude the live databases folder and have the server back up software back up the Backups folder.  If the server/disk dies ( it's happened ) I just have to repair the server and then restore the files from the latest backup.  If the container data is missing.... I'm in big trouble!!!

 

In looking at the backup schedule edit system I don't see any options about container data/files in the configuration.
