Ainvo Copy is data protection and backup utility which is based on Windows native VSS (Volume Shadow Copy technology. Shadow copy service working involves creating consistent backup of data or taking data snapshots to deal with any catastrophes that may erupt in future. VSS technology is based on similar plane, instead of capitalizing on data, volumes are consistently backed up to always keep a user on a safe side. Not only does it offer creating data backups, it is also suitable for checking system against widely common system vulnerabilities, application bugs, malwares, viruses, data loss, etc.
Since VSS is used to create backups which silently works in the background, you can carry on with your work without conceiving any pop-up messages/notifications. The application offers a simple and broad interface, carrying all the options to create one backup task on the toolbar. To start off, click Add to start creating a backup/copy task.
It will display a list of options in the main window. For each task, you can specify folders where backup is to be created, apply filters to exclude file types, create log to analyze the task execution process, schedule task at defined intervals, and add list of files which are scheduled. All the options come with description to help you understanding the type.
Once all the options are configured, you can navigate back to the main interface to either start the backup/copy task in question or see the next scheduled run.
The application usage can greatly vary and is subjected to user skills, for example, users can apply filters along with specifying compression level, schedule the tasks, analyze the log, or, without changing any of default settings, they can create and en-queue the backup task to begin the process promptly. Since its working is based on VSS, interventions are way less than other backup utilities available out there, if you’re looking for one distraction free backup tool, Ainvo copy is just what you need.
