Installation and Set Up

 Installation and Set Up

  After you sign up for an eHTbackup online backup service account, you will download and install the software onto your computer or your server.  After installation of the software, you will choose a unique encryption key that will be used to encrypt all of your files.  You will then set up your backup sets, which are the list of files that you want to backup and the times that you want to do backups.  Setting up backup sets is easy, and you have complete control over your backups.



Backups start automatically

 Backups start automatically

  From then on, as long as your computer is on and functioning, backups will start automatically according to the schedule that you have set.  While backups are typically scheduled during the night when there are few people using your computers, backups have little or no impact on your computer's performance and your ability to access the Internet. With eHTbackup, you also have the option of manually starting a backup at any time.

  

Your computer is searched

 Your computer is searched

  When a backup starts, your hard drive is first scanned for any files contained in your backup set that are new or have changed since your last backup.  Only these files need to be transmitted, minimizing the time it takes to perform a backup as well as minimizing your valuable bandwidth.

 

Files are compressed

 Files are compressed

  Once the eHTbackup software identifies a file that needs to be backed up, it compresses the file using industry leading compression technology.  Compression ensures that not only do backups take shorter but that you limit the amount of storage space that you use on our servers, thus saving you money. 

 

Files are encrypted

 Files are encrypted

  After being compressed, each file is individually encrypted using your unique 256 bit encryption key.  Because your encryption key is stored only on your computer and is never transmitted over the Internet, no one but you ever has access to your files.

  

Sent securely over the Internet

 Sent securely over the Internet

  For added security, each encrypted file is then sent over the Internet via a secure channel using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology, the same Internet transmission technology that is used for online banking. 



Stored in multiple data centers

 Stored in multiple data centers

  All of your files are sent to two secure data centers, located hundreds of miles apart from each other.  Each data center has 24/7 monitoring, advanced security technology such as biometric access controls, backup generators and redundant connections to the Internet.



Restoring your files is easy

 Restoring your files is easy

  Any backup method is only as good as its ability to retrieve files. This is just as true for online backup. With eHTbackup, restoring files can be done in just a few clicks of your mouse.  You have the ability to retrieve your files at any time and as often as you need to.  Using the eHTbackup software, you simply click on the individual files or folders that you want to retrieve and they will be restored to your hard drive.  And if the need arises after a system failure, you can perform a full recovery and retrieve all of your backed up files just as easily.
