1: Getting Started with Backups
With your purchase of the Essentials or Complete editions of Webroot SecureAnywhere, you can
use Webroot’s Backup & Sync manager to synchronize files to your computers, laptops, and
mobile devices. Once files are uploaded to “the cloud,” you can access them remotely from any
device with a Internet connection.
To get started with Backup & Sync, see the following topics:
 Securing data with Backup & Sync . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . page 2
 Configuring Backup & Sync . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . page 3
 Accessing synchronized and archived files . . . . . . . . . . . . . page 6
1: Getting Started with Backups

Securing data with Backup & Sync
With Backup & Sync, you can rest assured that your important files and photos are automatically
copied to the cloud (an online repository of secure servers where your data is encrypted and
stored). If your computer or mobile device is lost or stolen, you can instantly retrieve your data
from any device with an Internet connection. You can also start editing a file on one device, then
continue editing it on another.
There are several methods of securing your data:
•
Synchronizing files and folders. First, locate the folders on your computer where you
store important files, then designate them as sync folders. When you save files to sync
folders, Backup & Sync immediately uploads them to the cloud and to any shared folders
on other computers. You can access these synchronized files from your online
SecureAnywhere account and from your mobile devices with the Webroot SecureSync
app installed. (The SecureSync app is only available with the Complete edition.)
Backup & Sync constantly monitors the sync folders. If it detects a change (an edited file,
a new file, or a deleted file), it immediately makes the same change to your online account
and to shared folders on other computers. If you are working offline, Backup & Sync
automatically picks up changes the next time you connect to the Internet.
If Backup & Sync detects an edited file, it does not overwrite the original version stored in
the cloud. Instead, it uploads the latest version and makes a copy of the original file. If
necessary, you can revert back to previous versions (up to five) from your online account.
If you save changes a sixth time, your most recent version is saved and the oldest version
is removed.
For instructions, see “Configuring Backup & Sync” on page 3 and “Adding synchronized
folders” on page 14.
•
Storing files in the Magic Briefcase. If you don’t want to configure your own sync
folders, you can use the preconfigured folder called the Magic Briefcase. Any files you
place in the Magic Briefcase are automatically synchronized in the cloud and to any other
computers with SecureAnywhere installed.
The Magic Briefcase is ideal for remotely accessing a small number of files. Do not place
a large number of files there if you are concerned about conserving space on your
computers.
For instructions, see “Synchronizing files in the Magic Briefcase” on page 17.
•
Copying files to the Web Archive. If you have important documents or photos that you
want backed up, but not synchronized, you should upload them to the Web Archive. For
example, you may want to back up tax returns, old photos, and a scanned copy of your
passport. These types of documents won’t change and don’t need to be kept in
synchronization with other computers.
The Web Archive folder does not reside on your home computer and you cannot view it
from Windows Explorer. The contents of the Web Archive physically reside in the cloud.
You can only access them from your online SecureAnywhere account.
For instructions, see “Copying files to the Web Archive” on page 22.

and password you entered to create a SecureAnywhere account.
1: Getting Started with Backups
3
When the download completes, the Backup & Sync panel opens.
4
4
If you want to synchronize data, you must designate folders on your computer that will
automatically synchronize to your online SecureAnywhere account. To begin creating
sync folders, click Open File Manager.
1: Getting Started with Backups
The Setup dialog opens as shown below.
5
Click Next.
6
When the Select Sync Folders dialog box opens, select the checkbox next to the folders
you want synchronized with your online account, then click Next.
Any files residing in these folders will be copied to the cloud.
7
At the final dialog, click Finish.
Backup & Sync immediately begins uploading the files. Depending on the number and
size of the synchronized folders, the initial upload may take several minutes, but you can
still work on your computer during this process.
8
If you want to see the upload progress, open the Webroot File Manager (from the Backup
& Sync panel, click Open File Manager). Click the View menu, and select File Transfer
Status.
A File Transfer Status panel opens and shows the name, size, priority, and location of the
files.
The synchronized folders and files are also shown in the Webroot File Manager (see
“Accessing files from your Windows Desktop” on page 6) and the SecureAnywhere
1: Getting Started with Backups
5
website (see “Accessing files from the SecureAnywhere website” on page 8).
9
If desired, you can create shared folders between other computers. For instructions, see
“Synchronizing data between computers” on page 15.
10 If you have the Complete edition of SecureAnywhere, you can download the SecureSync
app on up to three mobile devices (Android or Apple). Install the SecureSync app by
following these instructions: Downloading SecureAnywhere Mobile Complete.
Accessing synchronized and archived files
You can access synchronized and archived files from the Webroot File Manager on your Windows
Desktop, from the SecureAnywhere website, and from the SecureSync app on a mobile device.
Note: Be aware that any changes, deletions, or additions you make in the synchronized
folders are also propagated to your online SecureAnywhere account and to other
synchronized folders on other computers. For example, if you delete a file in one
synchronized folder, it will be deleted across all synchronized folders. You can retrieve
any files you deleted from the Deleted Files folder in the SecureAnywhere website and in
the Webroot File Manager.
Accessing files from your Windows Desktop
From the Webroot File Manager on your Windows Desktop, you can open, copy, move, and delete
synchronized files. The Webroot File Manager is an Explorer-type interface. You do not need to
connect to the Internet to view the Webroot File Manager. However, when you are connected, you
can manage files online and across all your computers that have SecureAnywhere installed. For
example, if you want to access a document that resides on your computer at home and edit the
document on your laptop while you’re traveling, you can use the Webroot File Manager to open
and edit the file.
To open the Webroot File Manager:

2: Synchronizing Files
After you configure sync folders (as described in “Configuring Backup & Sync” on page 3), you
simply store important files in those folders. Backup & Sync immediately synchronizes the files
without disrupting your work. Be aware that any changes, deletions, or additions you make in the
synchronized folders are also propagated to your online SecureAnywhere account and to shared
folders on other computers. For example, if you delete a file in one synchronized folder, it is
deleted in your online account and across all computers that share that folder.
Note: If you have the SecureSync app installed on a mobile device (available with the
SecureAnywhere Complete edition), you can access all files in those sync folders.
However, to conserve space on your mobile device, SecureSync does not automatically
download files to them. You must use the SecureSync app to manually download files you
want. For more information, see “Downloading files” on page 28.

Adding synchronized folders
You can create as many sync folders as you like, as long as you keep within your storage space
limit (2 gigabytes for Essentials and 10 gigabytes for Complete, unless you purchased more).
Note: To create shared folders across other computers, see “Synchronizing data between
computers” on page 15.
To add synchronized folders:
1
From your computer, open the SecureAnywhere main interface (double-click the Webroot
icon
in the system tray).
2
Open the Webroot File Manager by clicking Backup & Sync, then clicking Open File
Manager.
3
From the top of the Webroot File Manager, click Manage Sync Folders.
The Manage Sync Folders dialog opens. The computer you are currently using is shown
under “This Computer.” If you configured Backup & Sync on additional computers, they
appear under “Other Computers.”
4
14
From the Manage Sync Folders dialog, click Add Folders from this Computer.
2: Synchronizing Files
5
When the Select New Folders dialog opens, click in the box next to the folders you want
included in synchronization, then click OK.
6
Click the OK button at the bottom of the Webroot Manage Folders dialog. You must click
OK for the synchronization to begin.
Synchronizing data between computers
If you installed SecureAnywhere on multiple computers, you can create shared, synchronized
folders between them. Whenever you update data in one of these shared folders (adding, editing,
moving, or deleting files), Backup & Sync automatically makes the same changes in the cloud and
to all shared folders. This automatic synchronization can be beneficial when you frequently use
multiple computers and need access to the most recent files.
To synchronize data between computers:
1
From one of your computers, open the SecureAnywhere main interface (double-click the
Webroot icon
in the system tray).
2
Open the Webroot File Manager by clicking Backup & Sync, then clicking Open File
Manager.
3
From the Webroot File Manager, click Manage Sync Folders.
The Manage Sync Folders dialog opens. The computer you are currently using is shown
under “This Computer.” Your additional computers appear under “Other Computers.”
(You must configure Backup & Sync on those computers for them to appear in this panel.)
4
Select a folder that you want to synchronize between the two computers. Click the Sync
button under the folder name.
2: Synchronizing Files
15
5
In the dialog that opens, select the destination computer and click OK.
6
Click OK at the bottom to send the sync request to the other computer.
7
From the other computer, look for the Pending Sync Folder message in the system tray.
Click on the message to accept the sync request. In the next dialog, click OK to accept the
folder location or choose another location. Once you click OK, Backup and Sync copies
the folder over to the other computer.
Note: If you select a folder with a name that is identical to a folder on the other computer,
a dialog asks if you want to merge the two. During a merge, Backup & Sync copies the
contents in each folder to the other, so they each contain the same files. If the folders
contain files with identical names, Backup & Sync first determines if the contents of the
files are identical or different. If the content is identical, it links the files and later
synchronizes them when you make any changes. If the content is different, it keeps both
versions and suffixes filenames with (from computer_name).
When the synchronization between the two folders is complete, the Manage Sync Folders
dialog shows the folders with a gray background and a gray arrow between them.
16
2: Synchronizing Files
Synchronizing files in the Magic Briefcase
The Magic Briefcase is a synchronized folder that Webroot has configured for your convenience.
Any files you put in the Magic Briefcase are automatically synchronized in the cloud and with any
other computers configured with Backup & Sync. Files in the Magic Briefcase are also accessible
from your mobile devices with the SecureSync app installed (available only with the Complete
edition).
Tip: You should not load a large amount of files in the Magic Briefcase. Backup & Sync
copies all files placed in the Magic Briefcase to all your computers with SecureAnywhere
installed.
To access the Magic Briefcase:
1
Open Windows Explorer.
2
Go to your personal Documents folder (My Documents) and open the Magic Briefcase
folder.

Briefcase.
When you copy a file to the Magic Briefcase, the file is instantly synchronized to the cloud
and to your other computers with Backup & Sync configured.
2: Synchronizing Files

If you don’t want to synchronize certain files, but do want them securely backed up, you can copy
the files to the Web Archive. You can also use the Web Archive to free up space on your hard
drive by transferring files there. Remember that if you modify the original files, the changes are
not automatically synchronized to the Web Archive. You will need to manually upload the
updated files.
Tip: Use the Web Archive to store important files that do not change, such as a scanned
copy of your passport or your tax returns.
Any files you store in the Web Archive are readily available. You can access them from any
computer with an Internet connection or from your mobile device with the SecureSync app
installed.
To use the Web Archive, see the following topics:
 Copying files to the Web Archive . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . page 22

Copying files to the Web Archive
You can make copies of important files by importing them into the Web Archive, either from the
Webroot File Manager or the SecureAnywhere website.

From your computer, open the SecureAnywhere main interface (double-click the Webroot
icon
in the system tray).
2
Open the Webroot File Manager by clicking Backup & Sync, then clicking Open File

the dialog that opens, select the files or folders you want archived.
The files are instantly copied to the Web Archive in your online SecureAnywhere account
(go to my.webrootanywhere.com).
The Webroot File Manager shows the folders or files under the Web Archive folder. The
Status column in the middle panel shows “Backed Up” next to each file that uploaded
successfully.

5: Sharing Files and Photos
If you would like to share files or photos with friends and relatives, you can use Backup & Sync to
send them an email that provides a link to copies stored in the cloud. This method of sharing files
preserves space because you are not attaching files directly to an email. It also protects your
original files because you are not providing other people with direct access. The recipients of your
email do not need to have a SecureAnywhere account to access the files.
Recipients are given access to a copy of your files for 21 days. Be aware that since they do not
have access to your original files, any future changes you make won’t be reflected in their copy.

6: Restoring Files
You may need to restore data you accidentally deleted or restore all data to a new computer. No
matter what the reason, restoring files with Backup & Sync is quick and easy. All your data is
stored safely on our Webroot servers. We encrypt your files with 128-bit Advanced Encryption
Standard (AES), the same level of hacker-proof protection used by major banks and the United
States Government. We then back up your files in two locations for redundancy. When you
retrieve files, we encrypt all data before it leaves our servers, ensuring that you are the only one
who can download and access your files.
To restore files, see the following topics:
 Retrieving an older version of a file . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . page 48
 Retrieving files you accidentally deleted . . . . . . . . . . . . . page 49

that computer.
2
Open the Webroot File Manager. See “Accessing files from your Windows Desktop” on
page 6.

Depending on the size and number of files, the synchronization may take awhile. When
the process is complete, the status bar at the bottom of the Webroot File Manager shows
“All files are backed up and in sync” and shows the synchronized folders under your new
computer.

7: Managing Storage and Speed
You can perform several management tasks to increase your storage space for files uploaded to the
cloud and to increase the backup speed of uploads.

from synchronization” on page 18.
•
Move some large, non-essential files from your synchronization folders.
•
Empty your Deleted Files folder. Files that reside in the Deleted Files folder still count
toward your storage allotment. Be aware that once you permanently delete a file or folder,
you cannot restore it.
From the Webroot Files Manager, you can empty the entire folder by right-clicking on the
Deleted Files folder and selecting Empty Deleted Files.
If you want to select individual files to permanently delete, log in to
