Video Backup Principles

The term “video backup” includes two different types of operations

  • Copying a video stream to a local or remote file;
  • Creating reserve copies of video files.

The first definition is somewhat incorrect (and, in some cases, illegal); saving a stream into a file is not a “backup” but a conversion of data format. The second term is absolutely correct.

Capabilities of Good Video Backup Software

Dedicated video backup software solutions must have some basic functions to save copies of video data or movies most effectively. Key features for this type of software are:

Auto backup video files. You can point which files you want to copy, and the program will copy these files, automatically finding and processing any of it (including seeking by the mask of a name such as AVI, WMV or MP4 extensions, and accessing remote storages for online backup video files).

Scheduling backup activities. The good video backup software solution must have a task scheduling option, allowing copying video (or any other) repeatedly by a period, or by some event such as plugging in the storage dedicated for the particular task.
