Back up

Back up - to create reserve copies of digital data in order to

  1. be able to restore the original data in case they are lost or stolen,
  2. be able to restore the operating system to a working state after hardware crashes and system failures.

Users can create reserve copies manually or use special backup software such as Novosoft Office Backup. Backup software allows performing several additional operations on the backup data such as encryption and/or compression. Users can back up all selected files (full backup) or the new and changed files only (incremental backup).
