Apr 13, 2011 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Remote file storage service FilesAnywhere is providing its customers with a new backup and sync application called CoolBackup, the Company reported.

The software is available in two versions: regular, which is free to FilesAnywhere WebAdvanced users, and the Professional version.

"CoolBackup is the ideal Web-based file solution, whether it's employed as a stand-alone or combined with other components of our FilesAnywhere service," said Tim Rice, president of FilesAnywhere. "Business servers benefit from its flexible, reliable backup and synchronization that protects their data with offsite storage and 'point-in-time' backups that enable users to retrieve previous versions of data." As described by the Company, CoolBackup Regular Version: Available for $59.90 with a 30-day free trial for customers who do not use WebAdvanced, CoolBackup enables users to synchronize file changes in real time, synchronize or backup complete folder structures in one or both directions from locations such as a PC, Mac or online storage. Users can increase backup capacity as needed, and they have no limits in terms of file sizes, the number of files or filename lengths. In addition, the program can copy file permissions and file shares.

CoolBackup's built-in scheduler can run up to 12 scheduled tasks simultaneously without users having to log on to start any of the processes. Backups can be customized with advanced features such as email notifications as well as multiple mirroring and scheduling options. The program's file access and backup functionality is also available on mobile devices.

"This program provides files support and security for small business owners, users with disaster recovery priorities and FilesAnywhere customers needing to synchronize across devices or with their files stored at," explained Rice.

CoolBackup Professional: Users of CoolBackup Professional have all the features of the regular version as well as the ability to run the program as a Windows Service for background tasking, and Synthetic Backup, which allows users to run scheduled jobs and backup files locally to network devices without having to log on. Backups can be scheduled to run to and from locations such as a local hard drive, external hard drive and older media types, such as a Zip file or floppy.

The Professional version also supports various Internet protocols, including FTP, FTPS, SFTP/SSH, WebDAV, SSL, HTTP and Amazon S3 Web storage. "The Professional version is perfect for IT professionals, server administrators, and anyone who needs greater control over backup and synchronization tasks," said Rice.
