HP Connected Backup
HP Connected Backup is an online backup service that automatically stores an encrypted copy of your files (such as documents, photos, and music) on HP's servers to protect them from accidental loss or damage to your computer, until you need them.
After the initial registration process, HP Connected Backup typically requires no ongoing maintenance. It automatically detects changes to files on your computer and copies them to HP's servers on a set schedule. To backup or retrieve files, your computer must be turned on, connected to the Internet, and not in standby or hibernation mode.
As long as you have an active subscription, your files remain on HP's servers regardless of what happens to your computer. Therefore, if your computer is lost, stolen, or experiences a hard disk failure while you have an active subscription, you can retrieve your files. You can also move your files to another Windows 7 or Windows 8 computer.
Back up files
By default, HP Connected Backup selects for backup all but exceptionally large files (over 500 MB) from the following locations of each user account on your computer:
• Windows® desktop
• Documents, Music, and Pictures libraries
Although these locations typically contain your most important files, you can select additional files for backup from other locations on your computer, too.
You can retrieve copies of your files from HP's servers, including previous revisions.
