It’s easy to restore files from the backup just by clicking the Restore option. However, the time required to complete the restoration will depend upon the capacity of the files.

Conclusion

CBackup is an excellent free cloud backup software using which you can safely and quickly transfer data. YOu can easily restore the data from the CBackup servers. The user interface is simple to use and effective. The free plan will be sufficient for normal users. If you work with Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive, and Google Drive, then you should consider CBackup as well. We would appreciate if the company provides a recognizable name for the files that are backed up on the dashboard. The first uploaded content will be Filer Backup and second one will be File Explorer (1) like that. It will be difficult to recognize the contents of the specific folder at the time of restoration. We hope the product team will provide a facility for the users to rename the default Task List names to recognizable names. That said, we highly recommend the free cloud software tool CBackup for all your data security requirements.
