Questions about backups?
Chat with Ross, sys admin elite.
How do they work?
When you purchase a new VPS or add R1Soft Backup to an existing server, we install an agent which connects your VPS to our backup servers. The first backup is always a full server backup, then each night an ‘incremental’ backup is taken meaning any changed files are backed up and a restore point is created. Our team of experts are then able to restore your backups for $40.
How many restore points are kept?
We keep up to 7 restore points, meaning you’ll always have up to a week of backups.
Do I get to manage them?
Through an easy to use web application where you can login and select files, folders or databases to restore to your server.
Where are the backup stored?
Backups are stored on a high-performance cluster in the same Sydney-based Australian Pacific Data Centres facility as your VPS. Please note R1Soft Backup is a disaster recovery service and does not permit for exports of backups.
