File backup will back up each file saved on your local device - for example, documents themselves but not the applications that created them. It allows us to protect files such as folders, presentations, documents, projects, e-mails, or databases.
Xopero ONE Backup & Recovery file backup is available on each of the supported operating systems. The administrator can indicate a specific path, a system variable, or a predefined Xopero variable while defining a backup plan. Additionally, we take into account basic file attributes, and on Windows system there are also permissions (ACL).
When is it important to do a file backup?
File backup protects our resources primarily against system crashes and ransomware attacks. Incremental or differential file backup is fast and has a relatively small size so there is no storage capacity abuse.
Performing file backup gives us the possibility to determine the importance of our resources. Those more relevant ones (and more often used ones) should be backed up more frequently than those less important or changed occasionally. That will be determined automatically by a backup solution that will check the changes inside the files assigned to the backup plan.
