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 or servers with numerous users working on files throughout the day, constantly backing up new files and updating existing ones. The busier you are, the busier we are.
Our In-File Delta technology has the intelligence to quickly detect the difference between the files on your system and the files in your backup, and only upload the data that has changed. This allows us to keep historical data of all of your files while only transferring a single full copy and greatly increases the speed of your backups.
Previous File Versions
Having only a backup from yesterday is the bare minimum, and for most businesses, is not good enough. Typically people don’t realize they have corrupt, infected, or missing files for several days. 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 Pro’s retention is unlimited and adjustable. We can retain deleted files or previous versions of files for as long as you need.
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
For many businesses, a second on-site copy of your backup, or multiple off-site copies would be desirable. Our Local Backup feature allows you to backup your data not only to Nordic Backup, but to any storage or network device you specify, at no additional cost.
Now you can leverage both the increased speed of restoring files from a local device and the increased availability and protection of off-site backup.
Seed Load and Recovery
If your first backup is too large for your internet connection, we will ship a hard drive to you and use Nordic Backup Pro to backup your data directly to the external drive. Once completed, you’ll ship it back to us and the data will be placed in your account. From then on, Nordic Backup Pro takes over with regular incremental backups.
The same process works in reverse. If you are facing downtime and need to recover more data than you can download, we will expedite a hard drive containing your entire backup to you.
