Net-Drive provides a new method of performing backups. First, data is backed up to a Backup Server using a modem or an existing network connection. The Backup Server is a software component of the backup system that runs on a remote server (Windows 2003). By running Net-Drive on a local system, data can be backed up and restored using the Backup Server as the backup device, rather than a tape drive or other local hardware device. This allows backups to be performed at any time and data to be restored instantly if necessary. Secondly, Net-Drive uses a special Fast Binary Incremental Technology process. This technology provides the ability to extract the actual changes that occur within files. By extracting the changes and only sending the changed portions of the files, the overall backup time is greatly reduced. In many cases, a FastBIT backup reduces the amount of data sent to the server by 85% - 99%.
