Guest You want to back up files
WebrootThis solution addresses Webroot SecureAnywhere

Instead of synchronizing files, you can archive them instead. For example, you may want to back up tax returns, old photos, and a scanned copy of your passport. These types of documents won't change and don't need to be kept in synchronization with other computers. Your backed-up files are uploaded to secure Webroot servers, which are accessible from your SecureAnywhere account.

You can run backups manually or follow the instructions in Creating a backup schedule to create an automatic backup schedule.

To configure backup:
  1. Open SecureAnywhere.
     
  2. Click the gear icon next to Backup & Sync, and click the Folders tab.


     
  3. Click Add Folder.


     
  4. Click the Browse button and select the folder you want to back up.
     
  5. Under Field Type, select Backup and click Save. The system displays the Change Backup Filter pane.


     
  6. Using the descriptions in the table below for guidance, make your backup filter selections. The default setting in the window is to back up all files in the selected folder.
     
  7. Click Save to save this filter. Back on the Folders tab, the Shared Across column indicates that this is a Backup Folder. To delete this filter, click X in the Remove column. To  edit the filter, click the gear icon in the Edit column, make your changes and click Save.
     
  8. To run a backup immediately, click Run Backup Now. To set up a Backup schedule, see Creating a backup schedule.
