It also utilizes the Rapid Restore technology that lets business quickly get workstations and servers up and running after disasters strike.
* Reliable solution since 1993Total Backup Recovery backs up everything important to a business, including Windows system, customer contacts, business documents, and all partitions on your system. Total Backup Recovery doesn’t just create a backup, it keeps continuous incremental backups over time. You can go back in time to restore system and files from the backup images. While you work, the intelligent backup scheduler will automatically back up your data and secure your servers and workstations from any potential data loss.
* Rapid Restore unique!
20 X fasterRapid Restore technology is exclusive to FarStone. When performing the rapid restore, it will only restore those files have been changed since the last backup. Thus, Rapid Restore is the optimal solution capable of bringing a crashed system up and running in minutes. For instance, a typical Windows system normally has more than 100,000 files. Total Backup Recovery only restores the files that have been changed since the last backup date, thus, only a fraction of the files need to be restored. This is why Total Backup Recovery solution can be 20 times faster than other competitors. Secure & Super Fast! “Rapid Restore takes only minutes to totally restore a system. “
* Full, Incremental, and Differential Backup
Greatly reduce the backup timeTotal Backup Recovery backs up everything on the first backup (Full backup). It would then perform incremental or differential on all future backup. Incremental mode backs up only the changed data since your previous backup. Differential mode backs up all changed data since your last full backup. Ultimately, both incremental and differential modes would drastically reduce backup time.
* Cloud Backup
Backup to cloud with 256 AES encryptionTotal Backup Recovery automatically recognizes your cloud storage services, such as SkyDrive, Google Drive, and DropBox.
