Hyper backup

Post by musicfreak » Sun Sep 22, 2019 8:06 pm

i have setup hyperbackup and it works.

I've than set the encryption of the file and enter a password etc. all seems fine i guess.

but when i do a restore it does not ask me for the password and just restores the files without any problem.

Should it not ask for the password i used to encrypt this backup ?

If you have a backup job selected and push the Restore button in the right upper corner I would assume that all parameters (including encryption password) from the corresponding backup job is used.

If you use the Wizard to create a Restore job I would assume that you need to add also the encryption password.
RAID have never ever been a replacement for backups. Without backups on a different system (preferably placed at another site), you will eventually lose data!

A non-RAID configuration (including RAID 0, which isn't really RAID) with a backup on a separate media protects your data far better than any RAID-volume without backup.

All data storage consists of both the primary storage and the backups. It's your money and your data, spend the storage budget wisely or pay with your data!
