EdgeSafe PST2PST Backup software is a unique incremental PST backup solution to seamlessly and incrementally backup Outlook's PST files; providing a managed backup solution for PST files that are located on the users' notebook or desktop onto a central storage area.
EdgeSafe PST2PST Backup has the ability to backup PST files that are located on the users' workstations even if Outlook is open. This ensures consistent and automatic backup -- avoiding the need for the user to close its Outlook and wait for the backup to finish. Since the backup is incremental, it can happen even while the user is working and since it is very light in resource usage, the user barely notices when the backup is running.
EdgeSafe PST2PST Backup is composed of EdgeSafe Control Station software and EdgeSafe PST2PST Backup Agent and it targets organizations that have Outlook email information stored on desktops and/or notebooks (in Outlook’s local PST file), and want to protect the mail information efficiently into a central location. (backup to portable USB disk is also possible)
Every predefined period, EdgeSafe PST2PST Backup Agent simply checks if the backup destination is available. Then it copies any email item that had been created/modified after the last backup run into a secure, per user backup folder, which is located on a central backup/archive location.
Since only new and/or changed email items are copied, the Outlook backup is incremental and therefore is very fast and consumes minimal storage space and resources. This also allows the backup to work even over VPN lines.
Another unique feature is EdgeSafe PST2PST Backup ability to reduce the size of the backup PST file in several ways: A. Filtering out unwanted folders such as junk mail. B. Backup is done for email items rather than copying bits and bytes of the PST file which may contain nothing more than large chunks of empty spaces. C. Incrementally synchronizing the backup PST file (patent-pending).
