Backup Software Without Compression Option: As-Is File Backup


If you are looking for a backup software without compression, for example, if want your backup folder to contain the files ready to use without having to decompress them, you came to the right place. One of the many reasons why our PC and server backup solution BackupChain is so popular with IT pros, is that it allows you to fine-tune backup tasks exactly the way you want. Instead of a bunch of unreadable, proprietary file formats, you can set up the backup to copy files as-is in their native format into your the backup folder, whether it’s a local drive, external drive, a NAS server, cloud server, or an FTP site.
Backup files may be opened directly from the backup folder, even without having or using BackupChain.

Our backup software offers the following backups without compression, as an option:

  • Uncompressed file and folder backups, file server backups
  • Direct copy Hyper-V virtual machine backups
  • Direct copy VMware, and VirtualBox virtual machine backups
  • Uncompressed Database backup and replication
  • 1:1 Disk image and cloning

Why Backup without Compression?

Having backup files immediately accessible is a great way to ensure everyone can quickly open a file from a backup folder when it’s needed, without any delays, and without having to install software. However, if you wanted to use compression, BackupChain also offers another interesting option: Apart from as-is backups, that is files backed up in their native format without processing, BackupChain also offers individually ZIP-ed backup files. Individually zipped backup files can also be opened individually on all Windows computers and servers, even when encryption is used. Hence, if all you are concerned about is easy access to your backup files, you don’t have to give up compression. The choice is yours.
