Data saved in native formats can be used as any other files of these formats. You can open these files, edit and modify.


The particular backup content is always obvious. You see what files and folders you keep in your backups.

Customer Feedback

I am no computer whiz so I like the idea of the files being backed in their own format without too much fuss.
