Why You Need to Back up Box?

If you are an owner of the Box account, you will need to back up your Box data for some reasons:

  • You may want to transfer your data to another Box account or even to another cloud service.
  • You may wish to have a copy of your Box cloud content in some other place.
  • A viable reason for backup is mere a protection of your account data from malfunction.

Methods of Backing up Box Account

You can just copy all content from your Box manually, although this method is highly unsafe and prone to a risk of a human error. Therefore, we are recommending you using Handy Backup, allowing automating backup and restore through a Box option or a WebDAV interface.

  1. Open Handy Backup and create a new task by selecting a menu item or by clicking a button.
  2. Choose the backup task type, and then proceed to the Step 2.
  3. Then select the “Box” on the left panel. A new window will appear.
  4. Choose the “New configuration…” to open a dialog for setting an access to your Box account.

New Configuration to Aaccess Box Account

  1. Enter your account email and password into the appropriate fields. Press “OK”.

  5. Schedule your task if you need it on the Step 6.
