Introduction
Welcome to the F-Secure Online Backup program.
The F-Secure Online Backup program is a software application, which you
can use to back up and restore your pictures, videos, music, e-mail
messages, and other documents. You can have the F-Secure Online
Backup program automatically select the important files for you and back
them up, or you can manually select the files for the backup. The files are
backed up to a secure server on the Internet. The automatic backup is a
continuous process that works in the background.
The program watches for any changes in files on your computer and adds
them automatically to the backup. Later on, you can restore any file from
the backup to your computer. You can restore all your files automatically,
or you can manually select the files for restoring.
