1. Click2Backup Briefcase
Click2Backup Briefcase is our flexible and innovative access-anywhere product, that lets you access your files wherever you go, and see the same files on all of your PCs. It works as a storage space on our servers that can be used to keep files synchronized across multiple locations, or to simply store files online without keeping a copy on your local machine.
As it is shared between all of your computers, and accessible from anywhere online, it is a great place to put the files that you use most regularly.
The Click2Backup Desktop software can be set to keep your Briefcase files on your hard drive as well as online, and you can access them at any time through a drive on your computer.
Once the software is installed you can use your Briefcase files just like any normal file on your computer. These files can be locally cached on your hard drive, as well as online, so you will be able to use them when you’re not connected to the internet.
You can use files in your Briefcase like any normal file, but with the added benefit that if you change a file on one computer it is automatically updated on all the other computers with the same Click2Backup account. You can view, edit or add files to your Briefcase anywhere in the world from your web browser.
Click2Backup keeps up to 30 versions of files uploaded to the servers so you can revert to a previous version if you made an incorrect change to a file and saved over the original.
Click2Backup keeps any deleted files for 30 days to allow for recovery in the case of accidental deletion.
The changes made to files within the Briefcase do not sync back to the original location of the file. For example, if you make a change to a file on your local hard drive, the changes will not be synced back to the same file in the Briefcase.

The Briefcase is sometimes referred to as the L drive. When using Briefcase, you can store files as local files or online files.
Local Files: Local files are files stored on your physical computer. Briefcase has the ability to store files locally, as well as store them on our servers as online files.
Online Files: Briefcase allows you to store files as online files. These files have a .ld extension and a reduced file size (alternative: that reduces the file size). Online files can be viewed online or by downloading the file to your computer.
Once the software is installed, you can use your Briefcase files just like any normal file on your computer.
You must ensure that your data has finished uploading before removing or deleting them from your computer. You can check this in your Web Portal and review the files you have uploaded.
