Remote Backup Service
Prestwood Remote Backup Overview
Prestwood Remote Backup was designed with the intention
of eliminating many of the shortcomings that plague conventional data backup
solutions. The Prestwood Remote Backup software launches automatically at
computer start-up, and runs in the background as the computer is used. Two
key product features help to automate the backup process. First, Prestwood
Remote Backup runs automatic scans of the user's computer looking for files
marked for backup, and backs up any marked files according to a backup
schedule that the user sets. Four default scan schedules are available
allowing the user to define how often particular files and folders are
scanned for backup.
Second, Prestwood Remote Backup allows the user to individually
file or folder they would like included in their remote backup volume.
When marking a file or folder for backup the user also defines how often
they would like the file to be backed up, and how many revisions they would
like to retain of the file.
The user can also perform an instant backup by simply right-clicking the
file or folder they wish to backup and selecting "Backup
Remotely Now " from the menu.
overlays allow the user to easily view the backup status of any file.
Prestwood Remote Backup Status Viewer provides a window through which the
user can monitor the activity of Prestwood Remote Backup. From the viewer the
user can see what files are actively being backed up and restored. Files
being uploaded can also be canceled from the Prestwood Status Viewer window
Another unique feature of Prestwood Remote Backup is that it allows the
user to easily
all files and folders currently stored in their backup volume at
Prestwood Data Services. Users can browse through their backup volume
real-time in order to see the files and number of revisions of each file
they have backed up.
One of the key benefits of Prestwood Remote Backup is that the user can
retrieve a file from their remote backup volume with the click of a button
as long as they have access to the internet. In order to
file or folder the user simply navigates through their remote backup
volume to the file or folder they are interested in restoring to their
computer. They then right-click the file and select the "retrieve" or
"restore to." option.
The user can monitor the progress of their restore from the Prestwood
Remote Backup Status Viewer. In instances where it is necessary for the user
to restore large amounts of data, or perform a full system restore, Prestwood
Data Services will provide the user with a full copy of their backup data
set on an external USB drive. This allows the user to quickly restore all of
their backed up data to their computer.
