Account Information

Once My Secure Backup has been installed, the first step in the installation wizard is to configure your account details.  The sub-account login details are provided by your master account holder and should consist of a DOMAIN, USERNAME and PASSWORD.

Automatic Backup

During the next step, you will configure the Automatic Backup functionality.  If you can always enable or change the settings you select here at a later time via the Configuration area of the My Secure Backup software.

Network Drive (This feature may not be available in your currently installed version)

To enable the Network Drive feature, simply select your desired Drive Letter (Windows) or Drive Name (Mac/Linux) and the maximum cache size to be used.

** Please note that if you are running Antivirus software you will want to ensure it is properly configured to ignore the Network Drive and not scan it.  Failure to do so could result in undesired activity to your Network Drive.

Sync Folders (This feature may not be available in your currently installed version)

The Sync feature works with a cloud-based Network Drive to help make your data available anytime, anywhere. By selecting specific folders on your computers to leverage the Sync feature, those folders will stay in sync across all of your computers.
