Backup my computer with ECHOshare

Overview

In addition to ECHOshare's core functionality as a file sync and collaboration service, ECHOshare can be used to backup data on your computer, thereby ensuring that it is safe from loss. Should your machine break or get stolen, you will always have the backups available to restore your data.
Unlike the core sync aspect, backups are not shared.

Click the ECHOshare Workplace icon  in the system tray.

Upon first launch, the 'Manage Backups' pane will show immediately.
If it does not show, simply click on 'Manage Backups'.
