UltimateBackup operates an off-site storage facility for your data. An account is maintained for each user. Each account is protected by a password known only to the user. The electronic vault system is set up so that at a preset time, (usually late at night) your computer automatically prepares its data for backup. It determines which files have been modified since the last backup, compresses them, and encrypts them for security. When the data is ready the computer uses its Internet Connection to contact a UltimateBackup Server and transmit the data. The UltimateBackup Server verifies and stores the data. You can rest assured that your data is safe for you to restore at any time.
