FileHopper Frequently Asked Questions:

How long will desktop computer backups take?

The very first backup after installation will take the longest and can run from a few minutes to 48 hours based on the amount of data you plan to backup and the speed of your Internet connection.

On an average computer and Internet connection, FileHopper Plus will backup 10-15 GB per 24-hour period.

Once the initial backup is completed, daily backups typically run in less than 15 minutes and, in most cases, you won’t even notice it.

FileHopper Plus performs differential backups, which means that it only backs up portions of your files that have changed since the last time they were backed up. This saves lots of time, bandwidth, and storage space.

How long are my deleted files kept?

Your deleted files are kept for 30 days after your most recent backup. Each backup represents a full copy of your data as it existed on the date it was backed up. At any time you can delete these retained files, freeing up additional storage space.

How much storage do I need?

Everyone’s storage needs are different, but to give you an idea, 50GB is equivalent to about 10,000 songs or about 16,000 photos (assuming 5mb file size per song and 3mb per photo).

How secure is FileHopper?

Your data is secured using proven, government-standard 256-bit SSL encryption. This is the same level of protection used by banks and financial institutions around the world.

Will FileHopper Plus backup my computer’s entire disk drive?

FileHopper Plus was made to backup your most important files (music, e-mail, contacts, photos, financials, etc.), but not your system and application files, which are easy to restore via your original CDs. Backing up application and system files and attempting to restore them from FileHopper Plus is not recommended or supported.
