Simply, backup copies of your documents or family photo/videos with a touch of ease.

POINT01 Once you choose the folders you want to backup, it will make backup copies in the card on any updates.

Note : Some email applications compile multiple emails into a single file, resulting in a substantially large file that is several GBs in size. If you specify this type of file as a target for backup, the large compiled file will be backed up with each email received. Do not specify such files as targets for backup, as this may disrupt operation of this software.

POINT02 Even if your PC goes down and your data disappears, you can be assured that you will have the backup copy of your latest files.

Note: In case of using "Schedule Backup", updates made during the period from last backup to next scheduled timing may not be backed up if your PC goes down.

POINT03 Backup automatically starts when it detects updates made on your files.  Icons are clearly indicated to show you the backup status [i.e. “Backup in progress” or “Backup Completed”].

Menu for Encryption Menu for Restore

POINT04 Files can be encrypted using the encryption option. For restoration of the backup files, the password that you previously set will be required.
