Exploring Backups

Viewing Your Remote Backup Volume

A unique feature of Prestwood Remote Backup is that you can browse their backup volume stored on Prestwood Data Services servers from your local computer. Your backup volume can be accessed utilizing either Windows Explorer or My Computer, and carries the name "Prestwood Remote Backups". Your backup volume appears as another storage device in the Windows environment.

Explore backups

It is important to keep in mind that your backup volume is stored remotely on Prestwood Data Services servers and not on your local computer. As a result browsing speeds are largely dependent on the quality and speed of your internet connection. To begin browsing your backup volume, navigate to the "Prestwood Remote Backups" folder utilizing either Windows Explorer or My Computer. Double-click the icon in My Computer, or expand the file structure in Windows Explorer, to open and browse your remote backup volume. Prestwood Remote Backup stores files and folders in your backup volume according to the file structure on your local computer. Below are the local and remote backup volume file paths for an example folder called "Backup Demonstration". Note that the path on the backup volume mirrors the path on the local computer.

As viewed on the local computer:

C:\Documents and Settings\User\My Documents\Prestwood Remote Backup\Backup Demonstration

As viewed on the backup volume:

Prestwood Remote Backups\User's Backup\C\Documents and Settings\User\My Documents\Prestwood Remote Backup\Backup Demonstration

As you can see the portion of the file path in from Documents and Setting on is the same in both cases. Paths will vary depending on your operating system.
