Every user has had worries about his personal or business files. These are often family photos, a music collection, security certificates or documents, personal information, or company documentation. All these files are normally saved to the hard disk in your computer. Many people do not take losing them into account, but there are several ways local data can be quickly lost.
These can be hardware issues, virus attack, blackout, operating system crash or more common actions such as overwriting or accidental deletion. Thankfully, we are able to avoid these unpleasant situations by using an Internet storage service. Here, we can easily save our files and folders to a third party storage space. The files are accessible anywhere and anytime. They are also encrypted and virus protected during the uploading, so the information is thoroughly secured against theft or damage.
All these features are great, but anyone can forget to do a backup. In this case we are offered a useful tool; the schedule backup feature. The following instruction will show you how to install a backup utility and how to set up a scheduled backup at whatever time you wish. Of course, easy access to stored data is a must, and through the installed application, you can control your data anytime and anywhere.
- Install Online Vault by following the steps from the article that focuses on storing files online.
- Start the application.
- Left click on the black “Change Schedule” button.
- Check the second box next to “Scheduled Backup,” and choose your preferred period and time.
- Save your changes by clicking the “OK” button.
Tips and Tricks:
- If you’ve checked the first “Automatic Backup” checkbox, Online Vault will perform the backup once a day while your computer is on. For laptop owners, the backup option is available while your computer is running on battery power.
- Launch the Online Vault application in the “Backup” tab and left click on the “Change Backup Files” button. This enables you to add or remove folders and files for your backup.
