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.
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 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 Small Business comes with a default 60-day retention period and you can increase or decrease your retention period to any length.
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.
