Backup - Online Drive

Accessing the Online Drive

 

Depending on the BullGuard product you have purchased you might have the Online Backup Drive included in your subscription. You can access the Online Drive from the BullGuard application by using the Online Drive button from the Backup drop down button (…) in the main BullGuard window, from Windows Explorer or from internet browsers (such as Internet Explorer).


 


 


Note: encrypted, archived and compressed files cannot be opened from the Online Drive. For this, we recommend using the Restore Guide.

  • by pressing the Windows key + E from your keyboard

 

Manually uploading files to the Online Drive without using a Backup profile can only be done by using the included UNITY folder.

 

* To have files backed up directly to the Online Drive you can use the drag-and-drop functionality or copy-paste them in the UNITY folder. A pop-up screen will appear showing you the progress of the backup operation.

 

* To restore the files, either use drag-and-drop from the backup drive to any location on your computer or use copy-paste functions to move the files from the drive.
