WebDAV Backup Software



Example Scenarios for WebDAV Server Backup and Sync Tasks

The technology of WebDAV backup and sync enables connections to numerous cloud services. For certain clouds (such as Dropbox, Box, OneDrive, etc.), Handy Backup offers its own plug-ins that do not require WebDAV client software. However, many other private and public clouds require WebDAV for connection.

  • For instance, you can set up a backup to a private OwnCloud server using WebDAV.
  • Another scenario involves a popular service that doesn't have a plug-in in Handy Backup but supports WebDAV. Examples include not only cloud services but also cases such as WordPress backup.
  • Lastly, the WebDAV HTTPS or HTTP protocol is simply an extension of HTTP, allowing you to use WebDAV client software to access various web resources (e.g., for downloading and uploading files during website backup or CMS management).
