How It Works

Gain peace of mind knowing your data is protected!

Connected Backup for PC automatically backs up your data on schedule whenever you are connected to the Internet. Your data is encrypted and transmitted safely over the Internet to our highly secure, geographically separated, redundant data centers. Complete backups take only minutes, even while you check email or surf the Web.

Automatic backup

To start backing up your critical data, follow the steps below.


From the computer you want to protect, register for a plan and download the Connected Backup for PC software.


Install and configure the Connected agent to automatically detect your data, or select the files and folders you want to back up.


Back up right away or wait for the first scheduled backup to occur. Your data will be stored securely and be available for retrieval.

On-demand retrieval

When the time comes, easily retrieve your data from the Connected agent on your computer. Or, if your computer is unavailable, log in to Account Management  and retrieve your data from any computer connected to the Internet. All it takes is a few clicks of the mouse.

With an optional purchase of CDs/DVDs of your backup, you can migrate your data to another computer (Windows only)!
