Online Backup Plug-in

Online Backup is a configurable plug-in that allows working with our proprietary cloud storage service HBDrive. To learn more about the service, please refer to Handy Backup Drive.

The plug-in is primarily designed to be used as a destination, but can also be used as a source of data. File system provided by the plug-in is organized as follows:

  • Top-level folder is a plug-in configuration.
  • Folders are common folders. They have no attributes.
  • Files are common files. Supported attributes include file size and modification time.

To learn about files, folders and attributes provided by plug-ins, please refer to Plug-in File Systems.

Using Plug-in as Destination

In most cases, the Online Backup plug-in is used as a storage destination for backups (see Select Destination).

Selecting the Online Backup plug-in as destination

To select Online Backup as a destination for your data, follow these steps:

  1. In the Storage Destinations pane, select Online Backup. The list of configurations appears in the Folder Selection pane.
  2. If you don’t have a configuration for a HBDrive account, click New configuration. The Settings dialog appears.
  3. In the Folder Selection pane, browse for a target folder on HBDrive. When you expand a configuration, the program connects to the HBDrive account specified in it, and then displays contents of the respective path. Since you don’t have direct access to the HBDrive file system, it is recommended that you always back up to the root folder, i.e. select configuration as a target for backups.

To learn about configurations of the plug-in, refer to the next chapter, Plug-in Configurations.

To learn more about HBDrive, please refer to HBDrive.
