BackUp Maker is safe and secure

With BackUp Maker we back up files and directories automatically at the desired times in the cloud, on local storage media such as hard drives, USB sticks and optical data carriers.

Interfaces such as WebDAV, FTP, FTPS are of course also supported.

So that the backups take up little space, they can be packed in archives (data compression) and encrypted with AES-256-Bit for security.

BackUp Maker are available in 2 versions. The free Standard Edition is intended for private use and the Professional Edition for business and commercial purposes, including technical product support.

Create a backup of important data

The setup of a backup job is easy with the guided wizard. During development, Ascomp attached great importance to the simple and transparent menu navigation.

After starting BackUp Maker we have the choice to decide whether we want to continue in simple mode or in expert mode. Expert mode increases the number of options available.

In simple mode, the backup job is set up in 5 steps and in expert mode in 12 steps.

BackUp Maker Expert Options

Basically we only have to select the source in the simple mode, determine the time or the interval for the execution of the backup, followed by the decision whether a full or partial backup should be performed each time, up to the target specification and the assignment of a backup name. With the simple setup, you can also determine whether the backup should be carried out when Windows starts and / or when you log off.

Additional options are available for setup in expert mode. These really round off the backup job. Files or directories can be included or excluded using a filter. When setting up a partial backup, the number of instances can be specified until a full backup is to be performed again. The password protection encrypts the backup either in the PkZip v2.0 or in the AES procedure. There is also a list of actions to be set up that can be carried out before or after the backup.

Execute backup actions

A split variant divides the backup so that it can then be automatically written to a CD / DVD, DVD-RAM or ZIP, for example.

The automatic dispatch of reports informs about a successful backup or underlying errors or warnings. Backups can be verified for completeness after creation. As you can see, BackUp Maker shines with many features and options.

Restore data

I think I've talked enough about making backups. How about the restoration?

Restoring data from a backup is even easier than creating a backup job.

With a quick restore of a backup, you simply select the backup and copy the data back to its origin. Then there is the possibility of restoring the data to an alternative location. This method is suitable, for example, when you only need individual files. But everyone decides for himself individually.
