The Backup component in Kaspersky PURE allows to quickly restore your data in case of a loss or erasing.
Data stored on a computer can be lost or damaged due to various issues, such as impact of a virus, information modification or deletion by another user, etc. To avoid losing important information, you should regularly back up data.
Backup process duration time depends on data size you want to back up. Therefore, Kaspersky Lab specialists recommend create backup copies only of important data and folders (documents, fotos, music and etc.).
Backup copying creates backup copies of objects in a special storage on the selected device. Backup storage is a specially assigned area of disk space or a data storage media. When creating a storage area, the user:
- selects the data medium,
- specifies the name of the new storage area,
- specifies the settings for storing backup copies,
- may also password-protect stored data against unauthorized access.
