Live Protect TM

Engage ACT Technologies Live Protect TM to have ACT Technologies backup files as soon as a change is detected.

Intelligent File Filters

Tell ACT Technologies Online Backup to watch your My Documents folder but to ignore all *.mp3’s or *.avi’s. Alternatively tell ACT! to only protect *.docs, and *.xls. Either use our pre-sets or set your own inclusion/exclusion mask.

Enterprise Compression & Transfer Systems

The ACT Technologies compression system only backs up changed files and then only backs up changed files and then only the changed 1’s and 0’s are transferred. Only a 500 MB database (MYOB/Intuit?Turbo Tax) the daily transfer can be as small as 5 KB. |Our transfer system is enterprise grade, meaning that large file transfers are resumed at the KB of interruption, and does not start at the beginning like most other online backup systems.

Global Roaming Access to Your Files

Because your data is being backed up daily to the ACT Technologies Backup Server Grid - you can access your data anywhere in the world using just a web browser. Never be without that critical file again.

One Click File & Folder Sharing

From inside the Online Recovery Interface you can share your files with anyone with an email address. Never have a large attachment bounce again. Just share your already backed up data with your friends and colleagues. Or if you are a home user simply share photos or videos.


Unlike other online backup systems, we do not delete the file from your backup just because you delete the file from your computer. Over 80% of data loss occurs due to accidental deletion. Rest assured, we keep every version of every file forever, until you tell us to remove it.
