4shared Backup Software: Online Data Backup for Windows

4shared Backup Software

4shared backup means two things: saving content from 4shared data backup to another place (with a possibility for restoring it later) and using 4shared as a dedicated storage for other backups. Handy Backup has a plug-in called “4shared”, allowing both uses as the 4shared online backup solution.

General 4shared Backup Features

The Cloud Storage

Handy Backup has a capability to store a copy of any 4shared file to any other data vault, as well as to use 4shared.com accounts as storages for other backups. Without extra measures, Handy Backup preserves all files in native formats, allowing using these backup files directly just from any 4shared folder.

Compression and Encryption

With Handy Backup, you can create a 4shared backup ZIP archive, or encrypt 4shared files with a BlowFish algorithm. These security measures can protect your crucial data when both transferring the information and storing it on a public cloud.
