When you set up backup or sync tasks regularly, you may need to use the same information many times: login and password to a corporate FTP server, archive passwords, lists of e-mail recipients, PGP keys. Entering all this info again and again is dull and time consuming.
We have found a solution. AnyFileBackup has a system of so-called ‘accounts’. An ‘account’ is a set of pre-defined settings that is generally used, for example, to access FPTs, mail servers, Google Drive, Amazon, OneDrive, etc.
Once set up, you then just select such account from a list in task settings. No need to configure anything again.
For example, access settings for an FTP server look like this:
Accounts can be accessed in two ways:
- from task settings: by pressing the ‘Configure’ button in ‘Account properties’. (Example demonstrates how to access an FTP account)
- from the main window: by pressing the ‘Program Settings’ button and then selecting the ‘Accounts’ item. Then select a relevant type of account and press the corresponding ‘Configure’ button. (Example demonstrates how to access an FTP account)
AnyFileBackup uses accounts to store the following data:
- Incoming e-mail (POP3 and IMAP)
- Outgoing e-mail (SMTP and IMAP)
- Recipient list to create lists of e-mail recipients
- Certificate (for accessing SFTP servers)
- Remote computer
- Ping (for checking whether a server is alive)
- Access properties (user’s rights and permissions to access AnyFileBackup itself)
- Archive password
- SMS to configure access to an Android-power smartphone
