D-Safe

No one ever wants to come to a helpless situation due to data loss. Data security is a need for every organisation small or big and yet you will find it often neglected. Today data losses can be very expensive to the organisation.

Data losses can come in various forms and they could be rampant. It could be by way of disk crash, virus attack, data corruption, accidental deletion of files, floods, fire, theft and other natural unforeseen disasters which could be potential destroyers of data. Backup is the only method to fully safeguard data.

D-Safe can help you automate this process effectively and efficiently. It would backup data from all computers that are connected by a Local area network. With DSafe, backup would happen automatically and daily, at a pre-scheduled time. DSafe today is a trusted name for Data backup.

  • Easy to use restore (Allows to go back to a ‘point-in-time’ )
  • Restores data with complete folder tree structure
  • Fully automatic process

    DSafe is a backup software, that automates the procedures for data backup. It works absolutely hands free. You will have to define what you need to backup and also state the time, just once. Daily at that specified time, DSafe automatically starts the backup process.
  • Compressed backup

    The backup files are saved in ‘WinZip’ compatible format. This gives the user flexibility and freedom to open the files using standard tools, in the eventuality of such a need. There is no size limit to what the zip file can be.
  • Incremental backup

    Any file that is created or modified after the last backup would be the ones DSafe would pick for incremental backup. The files deleted by you would still remain intact within the backup area until the backups get refreshed. So you can restore your file even if you notice accidental deletion after a few days. And if you maintain an external backup regularly, you will be able to restore such files even after a few years.
  • Open file backup

    Yes, DSafe backs up most open files. These files are backed to the last saved position, even whilst you are working at it. Files such as doc, xls, pdf, dwg, cdr, txt, etc. can comfortably be backed when open. Files that are connected to applications and which needs shutting down, can be backed up when in use, using an inbuilt procedure.
  • Online backup of MS Outlook (PST files)*

    Backs up open MS-Outlook files and that too incrementally. This is done using native code (Extended MAPI). Thus deriving unparallel performance.
    1. Backs up PST files online, incrementally & undisturbed, without the use of Windows Shadow
    2. Very fast, as during incremental backup, only the added messages would be backed up.
    3. Corruption detection mechanism brings corruption awareness to the user before it is too late.
    4. Minimum disk space occupancy at destination, almost 70% less, considering 5 day retain.
  • Compression on source machine

    Each individual machine does its own data selection and compression. As a result, it uses very little network bandwidth. Hence a very effective way to handle load of large data on large networks. Thus making it very light and comfortable for the network environment.
  • Copies using TCP/IP architecture

    Normally you would have to share a drive to transfer data to it, thus making the data on that drive available to all connected to the LAN. DSafe can transfer data to non-shared drives/folder. This ensures data security as no one will be able to access that backup drive.
  • Missing File Alerts

    Accidental deletion or accidental moving of files is an error that keeps occurring with one and all. DSafe has a facility that automatically highlights these files names along with their folder, size & time as missing files. So the user gets notified of this loss at the very next backup.
  • Multiple backup destinations

    You can have the entire organisation backup data stored on to one computer’s drive or more. You can also set it up in such a way that on three days of the week all backups can be stored on one of the drive and on the other days on another drive in another computer. You can also choose to store backups department wise.
  • Single point controls

    The machine you choose as DSafe server becomes the control centre. Setup and monitoring of all machines in a LAN can be done from the DSafe server alone. All log and setup info is stored in this machine.
  • Maintains Folders structures

    DSafe backs up data with the folder information. Thus when you restore, they get restored to their respective folders. Even if you are resorting data to a new or formatted hard drive, you never have to worry, as you will find your data in the similar layout as it used to be prior to format.
  • Data restore system

    When data is restored, it is restored with the complete folder structure as it was prior to the data loss. Even if it is a new hard drive, the folders will be automatically created. You can restore all files or selectively restore one or more files or folders.
  • 'Point-In-Time' restore

    There can be times when you may not want to restore the latest backup data. Instead you may need to restore data from a backup taken two or three days prior. DSafe allows you to set the number of days that you may want to go back to a Point-in-time restore.
  • Ensures 'no network jam'

    Normally if you setup more than 4 to 5 machines to backup to a single destination you would normally land up with a network jam. With DSafe you will never ever have a network jam, even if you set 100 machines to backup simultaneously.
  • Setup procedures

    Installing DSafe is very simple. Setting up backups for even 100 machines can happen within a single day and with ease. You surely will find it very simple, flexible & user friendly.
  • Network health checkup

    Provides an inbuilt utility to check connectivity to all machines for ping & file transfer. Also provides a report of disk space utilisation of all computers on network.
  • Ensures 'no network jam'

    Normally if you setup more than 4 to 5 machines to backup to a single destination you would normally land up with a network jam. With DSafe you will never ever have a network jam, even if you set 100 machines to backup simultaneously.
  • Data Encryption

    Certain departments or persons whose data could be secretive will need to be kept inaccessible. Data encryption allows the individual user to safeguard his data with a secure password procedure.
  • Email Alerts

    DSafe maintains a record of day-to-day backup progress, along with the detailed names of the files that it backed up. A summary of this log is created and can be sent to you by email.
  • Compatible

    DSafe can backup data for all versions of MS Windows.
  • Do I need to take backups?

    Backups becomes a necessity for every office or person who creates data. You may think that you do not need data for future references, hence backups are not necessary. But sometimes, it so happens that you have created data for the past 30 days and now on the day of submission you have a hard disk crash or file corruption. What will you do in such situations. Backups are a necessity.
  • How do I check if my data is currently protected by way of backup?

    Management generally is under the belief that their data is regularly backed up and are well protected. But it has often been our observation that they only backup a certain portion of their data and not every bit of it. Especially you will find that the accounting data is being backed up, and rest of the office data is ignored. Most often emails too are ignored. This could be dangerous.
  • What is so special about DSafe?

    DSafe has some features which makes it stand out among software meant for data backup. It backs up data incrementally and hence quickly. It has a unique Queue system to avoid a network jam even if a hundred computers were to be backed up simultaneously. It uses TCP/IP sockets for data movement on the network. It compresses the data before moving it to other locations on the network. Files that you delete are also safely kept (if you wish to do so). DSafe keeps a check on missing files and informs you of the same at the very next backup schedule. It maintains a log of the backups done, keeps you informed of errors while backing up, checks network status, tests network stability, reports on space status of each and every hard disk on the network and a lot more.
  • What files can I backup?

    Document Files, Spreadsheets, Pictures (products / personal), Emails, Software Program files, Music files, Data files, Drawings, Presentation files, Text files, etc. You can selectively specify wildcards (*.doc, *.cdr, etc ). You can also selectively specify folders. You may also specify to backup specific wildcards/all files from a certain folder. DSafe allows almost all the permutations and combinations required. Similar to its ability to include, you can also exclude unwanted files/file types.
  • Will DSafe slow down my Computer?

    Yes, but not too much. At the time of backup it may make your working slow, and since daily backups are incremental, it would hardly take a few seconds/minutes.
  • How much time will it take?

    The time taken for backup will depend solely on the size of the daily increments and machine performance. But generally if it is a standard document and PST files, it would be anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes. Of course the first time / full backups will take a lot longer.
  • Will I have to manually do anything?

    DSafe starts the backup process automatically at the pre-scheduled time, without even a single click. It starts the process, completes the same and leaves a report of completion on your monitor.
  • Will I be informed before start of backup?

    Yes, DSafe has a very effective messaging system to inform you of start and end of backup. 15 minutes prior to backup the individual user will be intimated with a countdown happening in one corner of the screen, so your working is not disturbed.
  • What is the operating system required for DSafe?

    DSafe is a Windows based application. It can perform backups across any of its versions, even on a network where different computers run different versions. It cannot backup Apple & Linux based machine.
  • Should DSafe be installed on every System?

    DSafe is a Client/Server Application and has to be installed on all computers on the network which need to be in the backup environment. The backup environment would have one machine as its server and the others as clients. The destination for backup data files could be any of the clients or the server.
  • How many backups can we have per day?

    You may have as many backups as it be practical to your environment. But one backup a day is recommended.
  • Can I have backups going to more than one destination / computer?

    Yes, as many as you wish to. You can assign one computer to hold multiple backup copies, or you may assign backups in such a pattern that, 3 days of the week the backup goes to one computer and the remaining days to the other computer. You can also assign them department wise.
  • Is it easy to setup?

    Yes ‘very simple’. We say this since, it is what most of our clients have expressed.
  • Where do the files get copied?

    When you setup DSafe you will need to specify the backup destination/s. All the backup files of the computers in the network will be stored in this specified area. Thus making it one of the most flexible, practical and effective file backup software. The backup data files are transferred from one or more computers, to one or more computers on the network. It can be stored in internal hard disks, external hard drives and other drives with dynamic access, such as zip drive, flash drives, etc.
  • How is the backup data stored?

    DSafe automatically creates a folder ‘DSafeback’ at the destination, within which you will have as many folders as are the machines in the network. Each folder is created with its own machine name, thus making it easy to identify. Data of each machine in the network is stored in its respective folder in a compressed format. All files selected for backup would be stored within a single compressed file. Every file that is backed up is stored with its folder structure information.
  • I have a small network of 20 computers, Will I need additional hardware?

    If you have sufficient space for backup, you will not need additional hardware.
  • Will I need a dedicated backup computer?

    Large networks should have dedicated backup Server to store the backup data, since the backup computer would be occupied throughout the backup process, busy receiving data from the other computers on the network.
  • Would data security and privacy be lost?

    DSafe works on the TCP/IP architecture and hence does not need sharing of any drives/folders. Thus if the backup destination is not shared and is password protected, it would be next to impossible for a user to access any of the backup data.
  • Can the backup files be encrypted protected?

    There are two types of data encryption. One is encryption with a standard password for all the backups in the organisation, this password would be chosen by the administrator. The other is a user level data encryption wherein a user can choose to type his own password and thus his data cannot be opened by anyone in the organisation.
  • Can I check if my backups has been happening properly?

    Yes, you can. There are certain in-built tools to do the same, and of course the standard practical methods.
  • Can I restore data?

    Restore is a very simple process in DSafe. You can restore all files or selectively restore a single or a set of files /folders. The best part of DSafe restore is that it maintains the original data structure of files / folders.
  • Will anyone else be able to restore my data?

    By default a user is only allowed to restore one’s own data. Then it is up to the administrator to assign rights to each user. He may allow or disallow restore rights. To be able to restore backup data of other machines on to your own, the administrator will need to authorise you.
