Function BRH 14 HDM 14 Suite

Basic Backup & Restore

Advanced Backup & Restore

 
Sector-level Backup

Sector-level Backup


Sector-level Backup operates with an image (or a snapshot). It not only includes the contents of all user-made files, but additionally contains the exact structure of directories, information about file allocation, file attributes and other related data. Thus it enables to successfully process system or encrypted partitions of any file system type, no matter what kind of information they contain

Differential Backup


Differential Backup

Differential Backup is good for regular backup, as it only archives changes since the last full sector-based image, thus considerably saving the backup storage space

    null  

Sector Increment


Sector Increment

Sector Increment is a further way of optimizing the process of disk imaging. Unlike differentials, it may not only contain data changed since the time of creating a full sector-based archive, but one of its increments as well, thus allowing to save more time and the backup storage

    null  

Sector Increment to Virtual Containers


Sector Increment to Virtual Containers

Sector-level Incremental Imaging to Virtual Containers (pVHD, VHD, VMDK) works much faster and rock-stable in comparison with the old PBF (10x faster incremental backup to NAS). Users are allowed to create several incremental chains based on one base image, provided each chain contains changed data of a particular backup object(s), which is opens up much flexibility in managing backup contents

    null  

Cyclic Backup to VD


Cyclic Backup to VD

Cyclic Backup to VD helps to set up unattended backup operations involving regular creation of full or incremental virtual containers controlled by special backup data retention policies. This tool is fully compliant with the so called set-and-forget backup strategies. Unlike Cyclic Backup that works with PBF images, Cyclic Backup to VD offers more flexibility in configuring regular backup routines:

 

- It can process separate partitions or entire hard disks;

- It can do full and incremental images;

- Its retention mechanism is more efficient.

    null

File-level Backup takes into account a file system structure and only functions on a file or folder level. So it is very efficient when archiving separate files or folders, but in no way will help you back up a system partition

File Increment


File Increment

File Increment is good for regular backup, as an incremental archive is smaller and takes less time to create, but you will require the initial full archive and all of its increments to restore the latest point of this kind of backup

    null  

File Complement


File Complement

File Complement enables to back up OS on a sector level to get it back on track in minutes, and then make file increments to keep updated only critical information, thus considerably saving the system resources

•    Restore Partition;
•    Copy Partition;
•    Delete Partition;
•    Change Volume Label;
•    Add/Remove Drive Letter;
