Backup to OneDrive

Postby Henrik Hermansen » Wed Aug 06, 2014 1:14 pm

Since users now have 1 TB data available on OneDrive (with MS Office) it would be obvious to backup to this cloud feature. The problem is we can't access OneDrive via FTP. Another issue is that OD only seems to work with local <-> cloud synchronization meaning that you'd need to have the entire backup on your local drive (OD folder) first!
Anyway, it would be fantastic if we could just select a (non-synchronizing) folder on OneDrive as destination for Backup4All.

Hi,

We have plans to add such a destination in Backup4all.

Hi,

At this moment, you can backup to the OneDrive local folder and it will be synchronized with the online account.

Until the Backup4All software is updated to support OneDrive natively, you can use this work around:

1. On the same computer running the backup software - map a drive to OneDrive (this is not the same as the OneDrive system folder that appears under My PC).
2. Now select the destination as your OneDrive with the target folder (just like you would do if it was a local drive).
3. Run your backup.

(** the above works for Win 7 as well **).

Note - you are still (I believe) restricted to a 10 Gig max on a per file basis. So, the only way I can backup my photos, which is about 25 Gigs, is using the mirror option.
