Chapter 3 Terms and Concepts
of Backup
Samsung Auto Backup User Manual Ver 2.0
8
Terms of Concepts of Backup
This chapter explains the concepts and terms you
need to know before using Samsung Auto Backup.
• What is Backing Up ?
Backup means storing data safely on storage devices such as
hard disks.
• Backup Source
Backup source is the files or folders that you want to backup.
• Backup Device
Backup device is the device (local hard disks, NAS, DVDRAM,
etc.) onto which you want to store the backup data. In the case of
the Samsung Auto Backup program, the backup device is the
Samsung External Hard Disk Drive.
• Scheduled Backup
In the scheduled backup, the software program runs the backup
procedure according to a schedule you set in advance.
• Manual Backup
In the manual backup, you perform the backup procedure
yourself using the software.
• Full Backup
All the files and folders in a backup source you specify are
backed up.
• Incremental Backup
When you back up data from the same source repeatedly, only
data that has changed or been added since the last backup is
backed up.
Samsung Auto Backup User Manual Ver 2.0
9
Terms of Concepts of Backup
• Real-Time Backup
This backup procedure is performed in real time. That is, the
backup source is monitored continuously, and when a folder or
file is changed or added to it, the corresponding folder or file is
backed up in real time.
• Backup Log
This log contains detailed information on the backup process,
including the start time, completion time, number of files backed
up, etc.
• What is Backup Information?
Backup Information’ is actually a database of important
information on your backups, such as which data Samsung Auto
Backup backed up and the result of the process. Based on this
database, the program performs its tasks such as backing up,
restoring, and deleting.
• What is ‘compression of Backup Information?
When a user deletes data such as a backup file and task log in
Samsung Auto Backup, the actual files are deleted. However,
the information related to the deleted files is only flagged as
‘deleted’ but actually still remains hidden within the backup
information. Therefore, if there are too many deleted files, the
program has to check through lots of information when
performing the next backup, and the backup process is slowed
down. Also, the size of the backup information file is itself
limited. When the backup information file reaches a certain size,
backups cannot be performed. To resolve these problems, the
compression function removes useless data from the backup
information and optimizes the remaining data.
• Defrag
In a disk drive, there is a ‘platter’ or disk that spins to read data
and write data. The data that is read, is usually the program files.
The data that is written is usually the information that you create
Samsung Auto Backup User Manual Ver 2.0
10
Terms of Concepts of Backup
with the program. For instance, if you are using Microsoft Word
to create a letter, the letter is the data that is written to the disk.
Remember that the disk is spinning when you are on your
computer. When you save your data (letter), it is saved on
various places on the disk. When you defrag your disk, you are
putting all the pieces of your data (letter) in one place. When all
the pieces of the files are put together, your drive is ‘optimized’.
Samsung Auto Backup User Manual Ver 2.0

Chapter 4 Installing the
Software
Samsung Auto Backup User Manual Ver 2.0
12
Installing the Software
Before Installation
Samsung Auto Backup is a backup solution that allows
you to back up important data locally, or through a
network. This solution provides various options that
allow you to perform manual backups, as well as
scheduled backups, and encryption the data during
the process.
When you back up data using Samsung Auto Backup,
you first should perform a full backup on all your data.
After that however, you can perform real-time
backups that monitor the source and back up only the
data that has changed. In addition, this solution uses
a disk-based backup method, minimizing the time
required to restore the backup data significantly.
Using incremental backups, you only backup the data
that has changed or added since the last backup. This
option is much faster than a full backup, as it is only
updating some files and not backing up all the files.
Samsung Auto Backup User Manual Ver 2.0
13
Installing the Software
Preparing your Computer
We recommend that you check the current condition
of your system and take any necessary measures to
optimize or defragment it before using this software.
For help with optimizing and defragmenting your
computer,
please
see
the
manufacturer's
recommendations.
If your system is unstable, for example if it displays
blue screens, you encounter an error message while
booting the system, or crashes frequently in everyday
use, you must resolve these problems before using
this software. If you think your system is stable,
optimize it anyway by running the recommended
optimizing software before using this software.

Backup Mode
From the Set Backup Mode a Normal/Scheduled
Mode or Real-Time Auto Run Mode is set.
• Normal/Scheduled Mode
Will analyze the current backup source (the data to be backed up)
and decide whether to perform a full backup (all files) or if an
incremental backup (only files that have been modified since the
last backup) is sufficient.

An incremental backup will only backup those files which have
been changed or created since the last backup.
• Real-Time Auto Run Mode
Choosing this will initiate an immediate, real-time backup.
A real-time backup will only backup those files which have been
changed or created since the last backup through the real-time
monitoring without analyzing backup sources. But, at the first
time, after a full backup is completed successfully, a real-time
monitoring will start.

Backup Settings Wizard that appeared when you ran
the program for the first time is displayed again. In
the Backup Settings Wizard, you can change the
backup device and other options.
NOTE: IF THE NEW BACKUP DEVICE WAS USED

Restoring the Backup Information
This process restores backup information that was
stored in another location. The backup information is
reverted to the time when the backup information was
stored. Existing backup information is then deleted.
After the restoration of backed up information, it is
highly recommended to run an Integrity Check to
match the backup information with the files stored on
the backup device.
Using Migration
Migration is different from backup as it precisely
copies the folder structure and files from the source
drive to another drive.
Samsung Auto Backup creates a new folder with the
user account name and the computer name and
stores the files in this new folder. But migration
maintains the same folder structure. Therefore, you
can use this function when you want to replicate the
folder structure of one computer in another computer.
To use the migration function:

Checking the Integrity of
Backed up Data
As the basic backup units of Samsung Auto Backup
are the file and folder, you can use Windows Explorer
to access the files and folders within the backup data.
Therefore, it is possible that you may accidentally
change or delete files and folders on the backup
device using Windows Explorer.
If you change the folders or files in the backup device
manually, there can be discrepancies between
Samsung Auto Backups information and the backup
files stored on the device. As a result, the backed up
data will become unreliable, and Samsung Auto
Backup won’t be able to restore it.
The Backup Data Integrity Check tool solves this
problem. This tool checks whether the backup
information of Samsung Auto Backup is the same as
the backup data stored on the backup device, and
corrects any discrepancy to match the backup files
with the backup information.
This will keep your backup information synchronized
with the actual backed up data.
The best way to maintain synchronization is not to
change the backup files stored on the backup device
in the first place.
One of the most important factors to Integrity Checks,
is the time information of the computer. If the time
zone of the computer changes after a backup was last
performed, the Integrity Check tool may recognize the
files as being changed.
NOTE: BE SURE TO CHECK THAT THE TIME ZONE
IS CORRECT BEFORE USING THE TOOL.
Samsung Auto Backup User Manual Ver 2.0

Advanced
1. Select Tools -> Integrity Check
2. Click Check(s) to start the integrity check
The progress of the integrity check is displayed in a
window. The result shows both deleted files and
changed files. Deleted files are the files that exist in
the backup information of Samsung Auto Backup but
do not exist in the actual backed up data. Changed
files are files that exist in the actual backed up data
but do not match the backup information, as they
were subsequently changed.
Messages will display showing changed and deleted
files. If you want to correct the discrepancies, click
the Correct Error button in the bottom right corner of
the panel.
When the tool corrects an error caused by a deleted
file, it deletes the information about that file from the
backup information of Samsung Auto Backup. That is,
it deletes the backed up data from the backup list.
For a changed file, it changes the backup information
of Samsung Auto Backup according to the information
of the corresponding file on the backup device.
