Note:

  • Currently, CBackup web client only supports backups from clouds to clouds. The data backup of the computer will be realized via the CBackup desktop app.

  • For backing up files quickly and make the most of the space of combined clouds, CBackup will split the file into several small slices(32 MB) to back up. Please be assured that the splitting will not damage the completeness of the file. After the restore, it will still be an intact file with the original size.

  • The backups can't be accessed directly. You can access and use files after restore.

  • Please don’t modify, move, and delete backups on the cloud official site. Or else, it might be unable to restore after.
