Hey I have set "Automatically Back Up" to "This computer" including encryption once and because of battery life issues, I want to perform a backup and restore. Under "Manually Back Up and Restore" I clicked "Back Up Now" but it didn't ask me for a password.

However, I want to keep my health data. Is the manual backup going to include health data now or do only automatic backups include those?

Yes, since the check box is selected, the local backup is encrypted and includes your Health data. The backup will use the same password you provided for the last backup, so won't ask you again this backup.

This is a very poor UI: even though you're not performing an automatic backup, the box is still used when performing a manual backup. You can verify the contents of a backup using an app such as iBackupBot.

I was afraid of clicking "Restore" in the prompt after "Restore Backup" because I thought it might start the process without asking me for a password (which then means no Health data). Trusting your answer, I tried and it did ask me for the pw in another prompt after that so I am confident that the health data is in there now. Thanks a lot mate. And yes you are right, this is an awful UI choice - looks good but is confusing af
