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.
In other words, Backup image files will not be generated during CBackup backup. The backup files are all block files. These block files will be stored in CBackup's directory under the directory specified by the user, and these block files will be stored in accordance with the user directory structure. In addition, if the generated block file exceeds 32MB, CBackup will split the block file according to the standard of 32MB/block. Each block file is 32MB in size, and CBackup will create a folder for these split block files , and save all these segmented block files. If the generated block file does not exceed 32MB, CBackup will save the block file according to the corresponding directory structure.
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.
The first backup run after the backup task is created is a full backup. After the first full backup is run, subsequent backups will only back up the changed files.
