Create scheduled backups with TurboBackup

FileStream's latest release empowers users to create custom backup processes.

Horror stories about failed systems and lost files are far too common. TurboBackup by FileStream is a full-scale backup solution that lets users schedule periodic backup processes to protect their critical files.

FileStream TurboBackup is incredibly flexible in handling various backup formats. The Backup Wizard will guide you through a series of long steps to configure their operation. users can choose to backup files to hard drives, CD/DVDs, or even online via FTP or FileStream's own backup server. After selecting the files and directories, you'll then be given an option to save as a zip file and add encryption codes. The entire process takes more steps than we'd have liked to schedule a backup, but then again, being thorough for a system operation is to be expected. But regardless, some users might find themselves getting a bit lost through the lengthy setup process at the first try.

Once the backup operations are scheduled, TurboBackup does a snappy job of keeping your assigned directories checked. A notice will prompt you with any immediate backup operations scheduled. You can also view the backup history of any previous operations, including backup types and destination directories.

Users can also enable custom operations for specific types of backups, such as documents, photos, music, and more.

There's a lot of bells and whistles to take advantage of in TurboBackup, but it's a powerful system tool in the most capable hands. We definitely recommend giving the trial version for a spin.
