A backup copy is a copy of a program, file and other data that is stored on a separate storage device. Such copy can be used to restore the original after a data loss event. In case of equipment failure you can always restore the preserved information.

Backing up is normally a routine part of the operation of large businesses. Lost of information can cause a major crisis or lead to business failure. Individuals who don not back up computer data run the same risk.

This module can be used to restore files, databases or mailboxes from a backup. You can download a desired backup (or selected files only) to your computer.

Delete backup

To delete a backup copy, select it from the list and click the "Delete" icon. Confirm that you want to delete the selected backup by clicking "OK" in the following window.
