Data Backup

With Asustor Express, you can speed up data transfer from your NAS devices to the cloud. Backup your files to the temporary storage device shipped to you by IDrive and we will transfer it to your cloud account. Data security is ensured with 256-bit AES encryption and an optional private key.

To perform immediate express backup of your files and folders,
  1. Go to the ‘Express Backup’ tab in the Asustor Backup app page and from the 'Local Backup Location' drop down menu, select the express device to which you want to backup your data.
  2. Select the files/folders for backup. The ‘Contents of Backup Set’ section displays all the selected files/folders.

  3. Click ‘Backup Now’ to backup your files to the express device.

Note: You can prevent files/folders like .tmp files, from being backed up to your account by excluding them from the backup set. From the ‘Select files/folders for Express Backup’ list, click the drop-down arrow against the respective file/folder and click ‘Add to Exclude List’.


You can click ‘Stop Backup’, to end an ongoing express backup operation.
