How To Plan Your Backups?

GitProtect is a tool that will allow you to protect and store your data. However, before you start backing up, think about what exactly you need. The software is highly configurable, so think about which solution is best for you.


Familiarize yourself with the possibilities of GitProtect and its graphical interface. To best match your backups - get to know the GitProtect management service.

What do you want to back up?

If you haven't already done so, take a moment to organize the most important data that you need to protect.

Define a backup schedule

Then decide how often you want to back up the data. And how long would you like to keep them in order to be able to restore this data in the event of a disaster.

Select backup storage

Analyze the size of your data and the number of copies to match the size of the storages to which you will be sending data. GitProtect is multistorage software, so you can add multiple storages. You can also use several types of storage simultaneously, send data to local storage and cloud storage or even replicate the data between the storages using the Replication module.
