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 Box.com backup and restore through a Box option or a WebDAV interface.
