Should the initial applying of your default backup plan fail, please allow up to 5 minutes and try again. This delay is simply your device registering with our Cloud Backup servers.

That’s it. Daily Backups are now running with the following default Disaster Recovery plan:

Monday to Friday at 11:00 PM
Retention Policy:
Monthly: 6 months
Weekly: 4 weeks
Daily: 7 days

Allow the backup to run and complete. Further details on customizing your backup plan along with our assistance can be discussed once the trial is over or we have upgraded you to a production account.

Encryption & Custom Backup Plans:

We recommend a custom backup plan to suit your exact Disaster Recovery plan. This includes encryption and different data retention policies. This is entirely managed via your Manage Backups area or by selecting “custom backup plan” upon initial deployment.

Managing Backups:

Any action related to your backups including an overview of all devices, restores and custom backup plans can be viewed via your Backup Console as accessed via Portal >> Services >> My Services >> Manage Product.

We provide extensive support and training on our Cloud Backup product should you require any assistance.
