Backup4all supports file encryption for backup types using zip archives (smart, full, differential, incremental, mirror with zip). There are two encryption methods: standard encryption and AES encryption (128/192/256 bits). In this article we will show you how to set Backup4all to encrypt the files in backups.
This article explains how to create a private-public key pair. Private-public key cryptography is a relatively new cryptographic approach whose distinguishing characteristic is the use of asymmetric key algorithms instead of symmetric key algorithms.
Backup4all supports backing up to a remote computer or device using SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol) connection. This is also practical backup destination because the backed up data can be easily accessed from any other computer with an Internet connection.
This article explains how to backup on two external drives using the daily rotation scheme. You can use the mirror backup type to create an image of the source files or you can create zipped backups using incremental, differential and full backup types.
This article explains how to back up data keeping the original file format (without using compression). The Mirror backup type is the only one that does not use zip compression. The resulted backup will be an exact copy (mirror) of the source files, without altering their initial file format.
Backup4all does not need third party drivers or other burning software installed to be able to write a backup to DVD because it has its own built-in DVD burners to back up directly to DVD. Furthermore, Backup4all can back up to most CD and DVD formats, including the new Blu-ray and HD-DVD (discontinued) discs.
SFTP, also known as SSH File Transfer Protocol (and sometimes called Secure File Transfer Protocol or SFTP) is a network protocol that provides file transfer and manipulation functionality over any reliable data stream. It is typically used with version two of the SSH protocol (TCP port 22) to provide secure file transfer but is intended to be usable with other protocols as well. The SFTP protocol is much secure than the FTP protocol.
This article explains how to backup files and folder from an FTP account using Backup4all. The idea is to use a third party application (such as NetDrive) to map the FTP account as a local drive. This way, Backup4all will recognize the mapped drive as a valid source for backups and you'll be able to backup your websites, FTP files.
