Multiple Destination for Your Backups

The program supports different options for saving MS Access files, including Computer, Network, FTP, FTPS and online backup service HBDrive. To reach a peak of safety and convenience, we recommend backing up your database both locally and online whenever possible. The FTPS is helpful when security is important (it′s FTP with TLS/SSL protocols).


Various Backup Types

In addition to the full backup, the incremental, differential and mixed backup options are also available. These types of backups are saving only changes between new and backup files. Therefore, these techniques processes much less data, saving a storage space and a backup time.
