Protect your Windows PCs with Backups to Unraid

Recover Accidentally Deleted Files

Ever press that DEL key a little too quick or empty the recycle bin only to realize you needed what was in there? Never worry about these problems again!

Protection from Viruses & Malware

Browsing the web has never been more dangerous. Malicious hackers are always looking for ways to compromise your data and security and the growth of zero-day attacks has increased dramatically in recent years. Protect yourself from these types of events with a proper Windows Backup solution.

Backup Faster and Easier

When your Unraid server is on the same LAN as your Windows PCs, backups can go as fast as the network and storage allow. Cloud-based backup solutions are bottlenecked by your Internet connection, whereas a local server can provide fast backups and even faster recoveries!

No Subscription Costs

Cloud-based backup solutions can be expensive, especially to scale for multiple devices with large data sets. With Windows Backups on Unraid, there are no cloud subscriptions required to backup your PCs.
