For Faster Restores, Complement Your Online Backup With Our VHD/X-Based Local Image Backup Service
While online backups provide the ultimate in mission critical data protection, a full local image backup can be an excellent complement.
This add-on service enables you to capture and store full image backups of your files, application software and Windows operating system on local disk media that you purchase and maintain. This increases your organizations ability to rapidly recover from a data disaster.
The BackupAddict S.M.A.R.T. Local Image Backup Service performs LOCAL image backup(s) of NTFS and ReFS formatted disk partition(s) using the Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS). Each backup is a complete, byte-for-byte copy of the original on-disk contents of the selected partition(s) at the time the backup began.
Backups are stored in Microsoft Virtual Hard Disk (VHD/VHDX) format on customer premise disk storage supplied and maintained by the customer. In the event of data loss, the BackupAddict client software can be used locally to unpack a copy of the ENTIRE DISK IMAGE to replacement storage. Once this entire image is restored, locally archived information can be retrieved using the standard Microsoft Windows file explorer interface.

BACKUPADDICT IMAGE BACKUP OVERVIEW
Why do I need a local backup when I already have online backup?
Online backup provides the ultimate in mission critical data protection. It helps you to avoid loss from threats such as fire, flood,lightning/electrical surges, theft, viruses and more.
How does the local full image backup process actually work?
When activated, an exact snapshot of a hard disk drive partition is captured and written to an external storage device in Virtual Hard Disk (VHD) format.
How much disk storage do I need for the local backups?
At a minimum, you need dedicated local disk storage (USB or NAS) equivalent to about twice the size of all the disk volumes you wish to protect. For example, if you have a 250GB system partition (C:\ drive) to protect, you need a minimum of just over 500GB of disk storage available.
How often do I need to run a full image backup?
Since creating an image backup is a highly compute intensive process, we recommend that you schedule it once per week during off-hours (or weekends).
Do I still get business-class service and support with the local backup service?
Absolutely. Technical support hours are 24/7. An on-call technician is always waiting for your call.
Can I backup to the cloud
YES! We offer this as a monitored service. This is used of businesses that cant lose software or other vital data.

Frequently asked questions
Here's a selection of answers to our most popular questions.
Most small businesses put their lives on the line every night and don't even realize it. With businesses depending more and more on the data stored in their computer, proper backups are becoming much more critical. Online backups accomplish several essential steps that are often overlooked or done improperly by other backup software - especially non-automated tape backup systems.
ARE YOU COMPLIANT?
As more and more things are getting accomplished through internet technology, private information is increasingly being stored in datacenters and transmitted through their networks. Laws and regulations have been enacted to protect privacy and the security of sensitive data. To help your business comply, Backup Addict's consultative experts are available to help you implement solutions that fit into your PCI, HIPAA, SOX, and GLB compliancy strategy.
HOW SECURE ARE ONLINE BACKUPS?
Very. You -- and you alone -- have access to your data files because Backup Addict encrypts your data prior to transmission to our offsite backup storage vault. Military-grade encryption technology and a user-defined password (encryption key) ensure that nobody, including employees of Backup Addict, can access your data. Compare this to the total lack of security on most tape, zip and CD/DVD drives.
WHICH OPERATING SYSTEMS DO YOU SUPPORT?
Backup Addict will work with most PCs, laptops or servers running Microsoft Windows versions XP 64-Bit, Vista, 2008, 2012, 2016 Server and Windows 7/8/10. 64-bit operating systems are supported. To ensure a minimum of software compatibility issues, please verify that you have applied the most recent service packs (software patches) to your system prior to installing the Backup Addict client software. Backup Addict software client will also backup remote volumes (files from other computers and operating systems) which are visible as a networked drive to your PC.

I wanted to write to you and let you know how happy I am with your service. I have been using Backup Addict for my critical data backup since 2O14. ln that time, I have needed to have my laptop restored by your company, due to a hard drive failure. After calling your company you came out very quickly and restored my data for me without a hitch.
Hi, I have started to sell the serive and you gave me a free account for testing and showing my customers. I have not even looked at the computer in months when my hard drive crashed and I lost some critcal files. After calling you restored the files after I left for the day and the next day all of it was there, thanks so much.
I have to tell you that your service has not only saved my business many times but the security of knowing that I have a Safety Net or a BACK-UP gives me so much security that it truly allows me to sleep at night.
