Smart Backup

A scheduled backup is performed every half an hour provided any changes are made in Smart Backup.

Smart Backup does not support disk or partition backup.
Files/folders saved in network drive is not supported by Smart Backup.

When You Need Smart Backup


  1. To back up database files that are frequently changed;
  2. To back up shared files that are frequently updated;
  3. Want to create multiple backup points for the recovery or rollback.

What You Get with Smart Backup

Before you move to what you are going to get with Smart Backup, you may need to have a knowledge of the differences among full, incremental and differential backup.

The first image of Smart Backup is always full. There will be a new full image created every seven days. The first images on each seventh days are Full.

The first image on rests days are differentials. The rest images on rest days are incrementals. There are no differentials on each seventh days as there are fulls already.

No backups created on invalid days. It is deemed to be an invalid day when your computer happens to be powered off or become nonfunctional.

How Smart Backup Manages Images

To avoid insufficient disk in destination, Smart Backup automatically deletes images as followed:

  1. All the Incrementals created on yesterday will be deleted with the completion of today's first image.
  2. As we have stated before, there should be 6 Differentials at most. So the last Differential will be deleted with the completion of next one. For example, Differential created on 2nd day will be deleted with the completion of Differential on 8th day.
  3. Likewise, there should be 2 Fulls at most. In this case, you are limited to restore the images in the past 15 days.

Smart Backup supports to back up the folders/files by right click in Windows Explorer. Select Create Smart Backup for selected file(s) in Windows menu to start smart backup.
