Backup System


To help protect your data from loss, Code42 uses backup to automatically collect and store every version of every file across all your computers. This article explains the concepts that Code42 uses to back up your data.

Backup basics

In this example scenario, the Code42 app is using its default settings and is backing up your user home directory.

The Code42 app constantly watches for new and changed files within your home directory with what we call the real-time file watcher. It adds new and changed files to a to-do list. When you create a document, the real-time file watcher sees that you’ve created this document and adds it to the to-do list for backup.
