    You can do this by including all of your folders, but we would not recommend this as backing up running programs tends to slow down the process and back up unnecessary data. Ideally you should only be backing up your documents and media files, as programs can just be reinstalled if necessary.
  • Version and Deletions?
    You can set any number of versions that you require with the client This option is located in the Protected Item retention settings. You can also adjust what you want to do with deleted files i.e. keep them for 6 months, 1 year, 2 years, or keep them forever which is the default.

    You can also set your own file exclusions in the Backup Intelligence client.
