Files-Based Backup

Files-Based Backup

The software lets you back up individual HDD documents and folders, and quickly restore them if there’s some error. This method is quick (especially, if you enable incremental backup), but can’t be used to back up system data.

Image-Based Backup

Image-Based Backup

With our program, you can create complete image-based snapshots of the entire hard disk, or any individual partition. HDD backups of this type are created on sector level and contain all system data, boot records, etc.

Why You Need to Back up HDD

If you’re like most people, then your computer must be connected to the Internet. This means that at any time it may become infected with a malware that can damage data on your hard drive.

There are two main technologies used for HDD backup: files-based copying and image-based (also called sector-based, drive-based, or snapshot) copying. Our software supports both, and guarantees that in case of a data loss event, you will be able to restore your data quickly and error free.

Comparing Files-Based and Image-Based Backup

Here’s a brief comparison of two approaches to hard disk backup:

  • Files-based backup implies that all HDD information is retrieved through file system.

It lets you create backup tasks consisting of separate files and folders and enables performing differential backup and other optimization schemes (where each execution of the task backs up only those data that appeared or changed since the previous one).

The disadvantage of files-based approach is that there are system files and data that are locked by OS or not accessible on this level, and therefore can’t be backed up.

  • Image-based backup is a creation of a complete HDD snapshot which doesn’t query the file system and exploits drive sectors directly on a physical level.

This technology allows creating backups of operating system, drive boot records and other data. Through disk imaging you can back up the entire hard drive, or even clone it. However, it requires a lot of disk space and works relatively slowly.
