Open File Backup
Nordic Backup does not access your files directly to perform a backup. Instead, we use Microsoft’s Volume Shadow Copy Service, or VSS, to take a snapshot of your data and this allows us to backup the snapshot without disturbing you while you go about your business. VSS makes it possible to ensure we get a good backup of your data every time.
Our continuous backup feature will backup files the instant they are created or modified. Continuous backup is great for computers with users working on files throughout the day, constantly backing up new files and updating existing ones. The busier you are, the busier we are.
Previous File Versions
Having only a backup from yesterday is the bare minimum, and for most situations, is not good enough. Typically people don’t realize they have corrupt, infected, or missing files for several days. Our previous file version retention allows for extended time between when a file is deleted or changed from your computer and when it is modified or replaced in your backup.
Nordic Backup Home Basic starts with a 60-day retention period so that you can be sure we have a good version of all your files ready for recovery. Upgrade to Plus or Preferred for a 90 day retention period.
Before your backup data is transmitted from your computer, it is encrypted using the industry standard 256-bit AES encryption, using a private password that only you know. AES encryption is widely considered to be unbreakable.
We do not compromise on privacy or security at Nordic Backup.
Redundant Local Backup
Nordic Backup Home Preferred plans allow you to configure an additional copy of your backup to be stored on an external hard drive for even faster access to your data, and faster recoveries, perfect for a busy home office.
