How to Backup

First, open the product and click on "New Task" to create a backup task.

Second, select the computer data that you want to back up. We recommend backing up the entire disk or system, but you also have the option to back up specific files.

It is important to regularly back up your computer to ensure that any new changes are also saved. While creating a new task whenever you need a backup is an option, manually backing up frequently can be labor-intensive. We suggest setting up automatic backups to streamline this process. The product offers advanced functions to assist with this.

After selecting the data to be backed up, go to the “Backup Scheme” feature. Create a new scheme by clicking on "New..." and set the backup task to start automatically at a desired time. You can choose between Full, Incremental, and Differential backup types to save specific data without requiring a full backup each time, thus saving disk space.

There are various additional Backup options available to meet different backup requirements.

Third, back up the computers to a single hard disk. While an external hard drive is convenient for storing all computer data, it may not be practical for backing up multiple computers. We recommend using a Network Attached Storage (NAS) device for this purpose (you can map your disk as a network disk), as it allows each computer to be easily backed up to a shared location.
