Backups Explained

Our Backup service is a very simple and powerful online backup solution. You choose which folders you want to backup, and they will be uploaded and the contents protected focloudbackupr those foldersit keeps a mirrored copy of your files securely online so that you can retrieve them at any time if they are lost or damaged.

Files that are selected for backup are stored securely and can be accessed and restored through the web portal or restored using our Restore Software.

Since our backup software only makes a copy of the selected files from your machine to the cloud there is no additional space used on your local hard drive.

The Desktop Software installer will take you step by step through setting up your backupsit’s so easy to configure…just follow the on-screen instructions. 

Livedrive keeps up to 30 versions of files uploaded to the servers so you can revert to a previous version if you made an incorrect change to a file and saved over the original.

Livedrive also keeps any deleted files for 30 days allowing for recovery in the case of accidental deletion.



Please note: Our backup service cannot be used for archiving. You must at all times hold an original copy of the data in the original location on the system it was backed up from. If you delete files from your computer that have been backed up, we will remove the corresponding backup from our servers.
