Backup to Windows OneDrive

Why use CloudBacko when OneDrive has the backup feature?

First of all, how are you going to back up your Office 365 Exchange Online mailboxes / emails, VMware / Hyper-V guest virtual machines, Microsoft Exchange Database, Microsoft SQL Database, etc. to OneDrive automatically and as frequent as you want? CloudBacko is the answer.

Secondly, CloudBacko encrypts all the filenames and contents of your data on your local machine before sending to OneDrive. Besides, it encrypts everything with 256-bit truly randomized encrypting key. Thus, no easily hackable key such as "123", "abc", etc. will be used. With this unique encryption methodology, no one, not even the people from Microsoft, is able to know what you have backed up.

Besides, CloudBacko gives you much flexible retention policy, i.e. you can keep locally deleted files on OneDrive storage for as long as you need. Whereas in OneDrive, the retention period for deleted files is very limited.

Moreover, with CloudBacko, you're able to combine multiple OneDrive accounts into one! Just create as many OneDrive accounts as needed and then combine them together. You can also choose to combine OneDrive with other free cloud storage such as Google Drive and Dropbox. Thus, you can essentially get unlimited cloud backup storage, for free.

In addition, CloudBacko Pro and CloudBacko Lite can automate everything. Once set up, backup will be run automatically based on preset schedules. It also has many built-in features that handle the scheduling, retention and versioning, security, speed optimization, incremental backup, data integrity, reporting, etc.

All these are the values that CloudBacko provides so that you don't need your IT staff to write your own backup scripts. All the scripts, the functions and features you need are all included in CloudBacko. Check out all the listed features.
