6. How can I increase my storage limit?

You can:

- Email support@riscitsolutions.com


- Call our customer support line on 01492 862 780

7. How do I know what is backed up?

You can include and exclude whole folders, with anything shown as:

[GREY] being unselected and therefore not going to be backed up

[GREEN] included and will be backed up

[RED] excluded and won’t be backed up.

There are more filtering options available for certain file types, but it would be best to refer to the software’s Help / Icon key or the appropriate manual for more information.

8. Can I backup more than one PC?

Yes but you need to install the backup software onto both PC’s and have a separate backup account for each.

9. Why have I not backed up?

This can be for a number of reasons, such as:

• No data changing on your PC. If you know data has changed then you may want to check the backup selection includes the files & folders you want to protect.

• No internet connection – as it sounds, if you do not have an internet connection at the time of the backup it will fail.

• If you can browse the web, but the backup software still can’t connect, then the firewall or antivirus software may be blocking it.

• The time the backup is scheduled (19:00 by default), the machine was turned off or in a sleep mode.

10. How long do you keep my data for?

By default our service stores the last 30 calendar days worth of data and every version of every file during this period, with 1 monthly full backup available for the end of the previous month. E.g. if you started an account on the 16th January and backed up every day to the end of February you can retrieve every version of every file between the 16th Jan and the 28th February. When it came to the 1st or March, it would roll up all of January’s backups into one archived backup, so you could retrieve data between the 31st January and 1st March.

We can also store more monthly full backups, for either 6, 12 or 120 months; however there is a higher charge for this depending on the amount of data changed during this period.

These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:

  • recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don’t need to do it for every web page requested

  • analysing anonymised data to help us understand how people interact with our website so we can make them better
