About Nero BackItUp
Nero BackItUp is a program for backing up and restoring data. Nero BackItUp saves files (file backup), as well as programs and operating systems (drive backup).
Open files can be backed up with the shadow copy feature, while you continue to work on
the file. You can burn the backup to a disc, save it to a hard drive or removable medium, or
use an online storage. With Nero BackItUp you can verify at any time that the backed up data is complete and correct.
Use Nero BackItUp to schedule backups, e.g. for regular data backup that are executed automatically. You can also use Nero BackItUp to set up the Autobackup feature, which automatically backs up monitored folders.
Nero BackItUp ImageTool is another tool for backing up files and drives. The Nero BackItUp
ImageTool is included on the bootable disc that you can create with Nero BackItUp. With the
Nero BackItUp ImageTool, you can back up and restore drives. This particularly lends itself
to backing up on otherwise active drives, since such drives are inactive when booting the
Nero BackItUp ImageTool.
Nero BackItUp SyncTool is a tool for syncing folders. It is created with Nero BackItUp and
stored either on hard disk drive, removable medium or optical disc. Nero BackItUp SyncTool

Backup With Nero BackItUp
With Nero BackItUp you can back up data. Click the Backup menu to start the desired
backup task.
The following backup tasks are available:
Autobackup
With Nero BackItUp, you can set up and configure Autobackup, the automatic backup feature. Once it has been set up, Autobackup is available on your computer's system tray and
backs up specified folders in the background.
Setting up Autobackup is particularly useful when you want to carry out regular backups for
the same files. The advantages are, e.g. that all the settings for the backup have already
been configured and that there is no risk of forgetting a backup date or of not carrying out a
backup as scheduled (as long as the computer is on).
File backup
If you choose a file backup, the individual files and folders that you select are backed up. If
you want to back up the same files again later, a backup update makes it easier and saves
resources and other things.
A file backup is useful to protect against data loss that can occur due to hardware damage or
force majeure (fire, etc.). As a result, we recommend frequent backups so that you can
restore data that is as current as possible in case of loss.
Drive backup
If you choose drive backup, entire drives (hard drives and/or partitions) are backed up, including the programs and the operating system. You can select the drives to be backed up.
In contrast to file backups, drive backups restore programs and operating systems when
restoring. So, a drive backup is useful to set up the whole operating system plus programs in
case of hardware damage.
Verification
Nero BackItUp can be used to verify an existing backup. Nero BackItUp verifies whether or
not the backup can be used for a successful restore process. During this process, data integrity is checked, and the backed up data is compared to the source data. If you carry out
the verification right after the backup and have not modified any data in the meantime, you
can use the feature to verify whether or not all data was backed up successfully (data verification).

Autobackup
With Nero BackItUp, you can set up and configure the automatic Autobackup. Once it has
been set up, Autobackup is available on your computer's notification area and backs up the
folders that you specify in the background.
You can choose between two Autobackup options:


Activate Autobackup to automatically back up files and folders to local and external hard
drives
Activate Autobackup with Nero Online Backup to automatically back up files and folders
online.
The one Autobackup option stores the backup on a hard drive whereas the other Autobackup option uses the Internet service Nero Online Backup to store the backup online.
When using Autobackup to store on a hard drive, you can define a backup schedule. The
Autobackup that stores online does so automatically every time a change in the monitored
folders takes place.
Autobackup formats the external or internal hard drive with the NTFS file system if it is formatted with another file system. In this case, all data on this drive
will be lost.
Nero Online Backup offers you an online data storage (which is subject to charge). We recommend a broadband Internet connection (e.g. DSL-1000 or faster)
for uploading the files to be backed up. The costs for the Internet connection
and the costs for using the Internet service Nero Online Backup are the user's
responsibility.
5.1
Storing on Hard Drive With Autobackup
With Nero BackItUp you can set up and configure Autobackup to automatically back up files
and folders to a local or external hard drive. We recommend the drive to be empty. Once it
has been set up, Autobackup is available in the Windows notification area. Autobackup regularly backs up all folders on all hard drives in a defined sequence. You can also choose individual folders and define your own time schedule.
Setting up Autobackup is particularly useful when you want to carry out regular backups. The
advantages are, e.g. that all the settings for the backup have already been configured and
that there is no risk of forgetting a backup date or of not carrying out a backup as scheduled
(as long as the computer is on).
Autobackup formats the external or internal hard drive with the NTFS file system if it is formatted with another file system. In this case, all data on this drive
will be lost.

5.2
Storing Online With Autobackup
With Nero BackItUp you can set up and configure Autobackup to automatically back up files
and folders online, using the Internet service Nero Online Backup as a backup location. Once it has been set up, Autobackup is available in the Windows notification area and backs up
the folders that you specify in the background in the defined sequence.
Setting up Autobackup is particularly useful when you want to carry out regular backups for
the same files and want to have a computer independent access to your data.
In order for Autobackup to be able to carry out the automatic backup process according to
your preferences, configure which file types should be automatically backed up in which folders and define the backup target.
Nero Online Backup offers you an online data storage (which is subject to charge). We recommend a broadband Internet connection (e.g. DSL-1000 or faster)
for uploading the files to be backed up. The costs for the Internet connection
and the costs for using the Internet service Nero Online Backup are the user's
responsibility.
The update backup method is used for automatic backups made through Autobackup. In this process, the data from the previous backup is overwritten with
the modified data. This means that there are no backup versions, i.e. accessing
older backup versions is not possible.
Files that are deleted from a monitored folder are kept in the backup. If you
want to delete these files from the backup as well, then use the delete feature,
which can be accessed in the Autobackup status screen.
To set up Autobackup or change the settings, proceed as follows:
1. Click the Backup > Autobackup menu.

Backing Up Drives
With Nero BackItUp you can carry out drive backups. In contrast to file backups, drive backups restore programs and operating systems when restoring.

When you back up a drive, the backup file is usually quite large. If you burn the backup to
disc, you will usually require multiple discs. The first backup disc is always a bootable disc. If
you do not burn the backup to disc, it is still quite useful to create a bootable disc so that you
can start the computer (and the drive restore) from CD/DVD in the event of an emergency.

About Backup Types
There are four backup types in Nero BackItUp:




Full Backup
Differential Backup
Incremental Backup
Update Backup
With the Full backup type, all files and folders that you have selected will be backed up. A
first backup is always a full backup.
With the Incremental backup type, all files that have changed in comparison to the last
backup will be saved.
With the Differential backup type, all files that have changed in comparison to the first
backup will be saved.
With the Update backup type, the actual procedure depends on the media on which the
backup is made:


If you are backing up to a hard drive with the Update backup type, then the data of the
previous backup will be overwritten with the changed data. This means that older versions will be erased; access to older backup states will no longer be possible.
If you are backing up to the disc on which the last backup was burned with the Update
backup type, then the procedure is the same as described for the Incremental backup.
In this case a folder will be generated in a new session.
With the three Full, Incremental and Differential backup types, it does not matter which
medium you save the backup to. You can, for example, use the disc that you used for the old
backup (Nero BackItUp automatically started a multisession disc) as long as there is still
space on the disc. You can also back up to a new medium.
Nero BackItUp
26
Backup Settings Screen
Incremental Backup (Above) and Differential Backup (Below)
An example is provided below to illustrate the difference between incremental and differential
backups:
Let's assume that you have 100 photos and are backing them up. The first (full) backup contains the 100 photos. Then you change 25 of the photos and want to back up again. You select an incremental or differential backup (it does not matter which you select for the second
backup). The 25 changed photos are backed up. Then you change another 10 photos and
want to back up again:
If you select the Incremental backup, 10 photos are backed up, specifically those that have
changed since the last backup. (Nero BackItUp compares the current status with the last
backup.)
If you select the Differential backup, 35 photos are backed up, specifically those that have
changed since the first backup. (Nero BackItUp compares the current status with the first
backup.)
This means that incremental backups require less storage space, however usually more
backup versions will have been created. The result is that the restore takes longer since many small versions must be restored (and made ready) one after the other.
The opposite is true of the differential backup: It requires more storage space, however only
two backup versions (the first and the last) are needed. Consequently, for the restore only
two versions are restored (and made ready) because the last version contains all changes
made since the first backup.

About the Time Schedule
If you have definied a time schedule, the backup process will be carried out automatically at
the defined time. The system time is used for this purpose.
The computer must be switched on and an operating system must be running for this to
happen. Nero BackItUp does not have to be running in order to carry out the scheduled
backup, since it can work in the background.
Depending on which setting you have selected, the backup can either be executed without
the user being logged on or a user must be logged on.
In order for the backup to be carried out as scheduled, provide the chosen target media:



If the backup is to be burned to disc, ensure that an appropriate blank disc is inserted in
the burner.
If you are backing up to an FTP server, ensure that the computer is connected to the Internet.
If you are backing up to a removable medium or to an external hard drive, ensure that the
appropriate device is connected or installed.
After the backup has been successfully completed, a corresponding message appears in the
system tray. If you set notifications in the Expert Options area, you will be sent an e-mail (if
a network or Internet connection exists).

Verifying a Backup

Verifying a Backup
With Nero BackItUp, you can verify an existing backup. Nero BackItUp verifies whether or
not the backup can be used for a successful restore process. During this process, data integrity is checked, and the backed up data is compared to the source data. If you carry out
the verification right after the backup and have not modified any data in the meantime, you
can use the feature to verify whether or not all data was backed up successfully (data verification).
To verify the backup, proceed as follows:
1. Click the Backup > Verification menu.
 The Verify your backups screen is displayed.
2. Select a backup from the selection list or select a different backup using the Browse buttons. If the backup is located on a FTP server, click the Browse FTP button.
 Verification option buttons are available and information about the chosen backup is
displayed.

12.2 About Sync Types
Nero BackItUp has five sync types:





Mirror
Copy
Partial synchronization
Update
Partial mirror
The Mirror type synchronizes two folders. New and updated files are copied from one folder
to the other folder. Files that are deleted in one folder are also deleted in the other folder.
The Copy type copies new and updated files from the left to the right folder. Files that are
deleted in the left folder are also deleted in the right folder.
The Partial synchronization type copies updated files from the right to the left folder. This
sync type only deals with the same files, new files or deleted files will be ignored.
The Update type has the same function as the Copy type with the exception that the Update type does not delete.
The Partial mirror type has the same function as the Mirror type with the exception that the
Partial mirror type does not delete.
Note, that Nero BackItUp cannot identify changed or renamed files during the first run. The
reason is that sync information is stored in a separate file and changes are compared to this
information.
You can also specify how Nero BackItUp should handle a conflict. For example: you are running a sync job using the Partial synchronization type so that updated files are copied from
left to right. When a file in the right folder is newer than its counterpart on the left, a conflict
occurs. Depending on your choice, Nero BackItUp will keep the specified file (either the left,
the right or the newest file), does not replace the file on the right, or asks you what to do.

Nero BackItUp can be used to erase rewritable discs, i.e. discs with the RW specification, as
long as your recorder supports this feature. Two erase methods are available for this purpose:
Quick erasing does not remove the data physically from the disc, but instead only makes it
inaccessible by erasing the references to existing content. The data can be restored!
Full erasing removes the data from the disc by overwriting it with zeroes. The contents cannot be restored with conventional methods. Repeated full erasing increases the probability
that third parties will not be able to reconstruct the contents.

still physically available. Erasing a disc using this method takes
between one and two minutes.
The Full-erase rewritable disc method physically erases all
data from the disc. The contents cannot be restored with conventional methods. Repeated full erasing increases the probability that third parties will not be able to reconstruct the contents. Erasing the disc using this method takes longer than the

Nero BackItUp ImageTool
Nero BackItUp ImageTool is a backup and restore program that is similar to Nero BackItUp,
and which is run from a bootable CD or DVD without Windows being active.
The bootable CD or DVD is created with Nero BackItUp.
Nero BackItUp ImageTool is intended for backing up and restoring drives. Since Nero BackItUp ImageTool is booted from a CD or DVD, the computer's hard drives are not active. This
makes it possible to back up or restore a drive without verification errors.
See also:
 Creating Bootable Nero BackItUp ImageTool 43
15.1 Starting Nero BackItUp ImageTool
Nero BackItUp ImageTool is started from the bootable CD/DVD that you created with Nero
BackItUp. If booting from the CD/DVD, the computer is started without having to access the
hard drive. Since the hard drive is disabled, backup or restore without verification errors is
possible.
The following prerequisites must be fulfilled for the computer to be able to boot from the disc:
 The start sequence must be set in the BIOS of the computer in such a way that the drive
is addressed first as the boot drive (start sequence CD-ROM, C, A for instance).
 In the case of an SCSI CD-ROM drive, this drive must be connected to an SCSI adapter
with a separate BIOS in which settings can be modified accordingly. (This will only work if
there are no IDE hard drives present, as these come before the SCSI adapter in the boot
sequence.)
 The bootable CD/DVD that you created with Nero BackItUp is placed in the drive.
To boot the computer from the disc and to start Nero BackItUp ImageTool, proceed as follows:
1. Start the computer.
 The computer starts and boots from the CD/DVD.
Nero BackItUp ImageTool is loaded. You can track the process with the messages on
the screen.
The Nero BackItUp ImageTool start screen is displayed. A language selection list is
displayed.
Booting from the CD/DVD
It is important for the CD/DVD to already be in the drive when the computer is
started, since this is the only way that the CD/DVD will be booted and Nero BackItUp ImageTool run.
Because it is not possible to insert a CD/DVD when the computer is switched
off, first start the computer as usual, insert the CD/DVD, and then shut down
the computer.
2. Select the language for Nero BackItUp ImageTool from the Please choose your language
selection list.
Nero BackItUp

Nero BackItUp ImageTool
3. Click the OK button.
 The Nero BackItUp ImageTool window is opened.
 A window with a license agreement is opened.
4. Please read the license agreement carefully and select the appropriate check box if you
agree to the terms of the agreement. Using Nero BackItUp ImageTool is not possible without
your consent to this agreement.
5. Click the Next button.
 The window with the license agreement is closed. The Options window is opened with
the Network tab on front. You can now configure the network or close the window.
 You have booted Nero BackItUp ImageTool from the disc.
The CD/DVD is no longer needed after Nero BackItUp ImageTool has started.
You can remove the CD/DVD if you need the drive for a backup or restore disc.

and the disc is ejected.
10. Remove the recorded disc and insert a new blank disc.
 The backup process resumes and the newly inserted blank disc is burned.
11. Repeat the previous step until the backup has been completely burned to disc.

Glossary

Glossary
Backup
Copying data from the computer to an alternative storage medium. Backups are created in a
special format with the help of a backup program.
Bootable CD
Booting refers to loading the operating system when a computer is started. This is normally
done from the hard drive. However, if you do not want to boot or cannot boot your computer
from your hard drive for whatever reason, you can load an operating environment from the
drive with a boot CD.
CRC
Cyclic Redundance Check refers to an error-detection procedure used during the transmission or copying of data. A checksum is calculated with a defined amount of data at the beginning, and provided with the data block. After the operation has ended, the checksum is
calculated again and compared to the first value. Deviations indicate the presence of errors.
FTP Server
An FTP server is a data storage unit that can be accessed through the Internet. Access is
usually anonymous. FTP servers are frequently used as storage locations for backups.
Master Boot Record MBR
The Master Boot Record (MBR) is located in the hard drive's first sector. It contains a boot
file that starts the operating system. It also defines the drive's partitioning.
Restore
Restore stands for restoring data to a previous condition or to copying data by using a backup copy that was created previously and a backup program, e.g. Nero BackItUp.
Shadow Copy
A shadow copy is a snapshot of a file at a certain point in time. The advantage is that you
can keep working with this file while the backup program, e.g. Nero BackItUp, backs up the
file in the background. This feature is particularly relevant when you want to save system files, which are modified continuously by the system.
