Instead of synchronizing files, you can archive them instead. For example, you may want to back up tax returns, old photos, and a scanned copy of your passport. These types of documents won't change and don't need to be kept in synchronization with other computers. Your backed-up files are uploaded to secure Webroot servers, which are accessible from your SecureAnywhere account.

You can run backups manually or follow the instructions in Creating a backup schedule to create an automatic backup schedule.

To configure backup:
  1. Open SecureAnywhere (see Using the SecureAnywhere interface).
  2. Click the gear icon next to Backup & Sync, and click the Folders tab. [img][/img]  
  3. Click the Browse button and select the folder you want to back up.  
  4. Under Field Type, select Backup and click Save. The system displays the Change Backup Filter pane.
