What is Continuous Data Protection (CDP)?

The Continuous Data Protection (CDP) feature automatically recognizes the changes made to the files (for certain accounts, limited to 500 MB in size) in the Backup set and starts the backup operation in minimum of 15 minutes.

The temporary files, system files, network / mapped drives are excluded from the operation. CDP is not a replacement for the traditional schedule backup feature but works along with scheduled backup to provide timely protection to your data.

Note: For certain accounts, network and external drives (in Mac) are excluded from CDP.

 

Can I set the frequency of backups under Continuous Data Protection feature?

Yes, you can set the frequency of your backups. Just go to the Continuous Data Protection feature, located under the Settings tab and select the frequency of when the backup should initiate after the changes are made to the files.

 

What are the advantages of Continuous Data Protection?

Continuous Data Protection has the following advantages :

  1. It prevents loss of data as the modified contents of the files are backed up automatically.
  2. Frequently modified data starts getting backed up in minimum of 15 minutes. Thus, you can accurately restore an earlier version created on the same day.
 

Will the scheduled backups occur even when the Continuous Data Protection feature is enabled?

Yes. The Continuous Data Protection feature is designed to recognize and backup all the changes made to the files in your backup set (for certain accounts, limited to 500 MB in size). The backup operation starts in minimum of 15 minutes. It is not a replacement for the schedule backup operation - which backs up all the files in your Backup set and takes place even if you have enabled Continuous Data Protection.

The Continuous Data Protection will stop during the scheduled backup and resume once the scheduled job is complete.
