Continuous Data Protection

IDrive automatically recognizes the changes made to files present in your backup set and backs them up in real-time. The frequency of the continuous backups can be customized to 10 minutes, 30 minutes and 60 minutes time slots.

To enable continuous data protection,
  1. Go to the Settings tab.
  2. Select the Continuous Data Protection option. 
  3. From the drop-down list, set the Frequency of your choice. 



  4. Click Save Settings.


Note: 
  • Files less than 500 MB are only considered for Continuous Data Protection, as frequently modified data tend to be small. Also, it avoids slowing down your machine while you work on it.
  • Temporary files and system files are exempted from Continuous Data Protection.
  • For certain accounts, Network and External drives are exempted from Continuous Data Protection.
