Backup to Multiple Storage Folders at once
Version 1.92 of the Backup Tool Pro software introduced the MultiStorage
feature that allows you to set a number of folders as a location for your backups. The
idea is to let you have more than just one copy of any backup created. The Backup Tool
will automatically export the backup files to each of the specified folders.
If you have just one backup of your important files, there is always a chance to find
the backup corrupt, inaccessible, etc. When you keep your backups in two different places
your chances to lose the both copies at once are significantly lower. The more copies you
have, the safer your files are. Don't put all your eggs in one basket. Put them all in
lots of baskets!
The Backup Tool doesn't require all the specified storage folders to be accessible
during a backup attempt. The backup creation is considered successful if the Backup Tool has been able to place the backup file(s) to at least one of the folders. This
gives you an opportunity to list some folders that are inaccessible occasionally.
For example, you can specify a folder of your wife's/husband's computer as an
additional storage folder for your home backups. If that computer appears switched on,
you'll have one more copy of your backup. If it's off at the moment, you just won't have
an additional copy that time.
We optimized the process the way the first backup copy is always created on your local
hard disk. Sending the copy to other locations takes only the time needed to transfer
You don't have to place a hard disk folder first in the list. The Backup Tool will
look through the storage folder list to find a local folder where to create the first copy
of your backup. Even if the list of storage folders doesn't include any local hard disk
folders, the Backup Tool will create the first copy in the system temporary
folder, which is normally on your hard disk.
