Difference between System Backup and Save Configuration

Hi community,


I read the following in the CCSA student guide:


System backup: This method allows you to back up the configuration of the Gaia
operating system and the Check Point configuration.

Save configuration: The Save Configuration backup method is used for saving Gaia operating system configuration
settings as a ready-to-run CLI script.


For me, they do the same thing. After this there is a chart with a few differences, one of them says that System Backup back up products configuration while Save Configuration doesn't. 


According to me, the configuration of the Gaia OS refers to things like interface IP addresses, NTP, routing protocols, etc. What does product configuration refer to?


Thanks in advance,
