|End-users simply download and install the client software, and their computers are ready to backup and restore data securely across the Internet to a secure server. The Getting Started Wizard will automatically appear if any of the critical fields have been left blank when setup was run. This wizard walks the user through the steps of connecting to the backup server, configuring backup sets, creating a backup schedule and setting a secret encryption key. FastBIT II Incremental Backups FastBIT technology can accurately extract only the changes that you've made to a file since your last backup. This efficiency is achieved by using the powerful FastBIT difference engine to identify and extract the binary-level differences on two versions of any file.
Microsoft SQL and Exchange Server Plug-ins - These client-based plug-ins are the ideal way to protect your Microsoft database and messaging systems, even while these important assets are being used 24/7. Supports MSDE/SQL 2000, 2005 and 2008, Exchange Server 2000 through 2007!
Advanced Encryption - Wild Blue Backup effectively secures all your data in an encrypted format and all communications between the client and server are encrypted with the 128 Bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption algorithm (previous encryption algorithms continue to be supported).
Open File Backup - Leveraging Microsoft's latest Volume Shadow-Copy Service (VSS) framework, Wild Blue has incorporated mainstream functionality in its Wild Blue Backup software to permit consistent backup of open files without the need for additional applications or plug-ins. Works with Windows XP, Vista and Windows 2003 operating systems.
Silent Mode - The Wild Blue Backup now supports a Silent mode that will allow the program to run silently in the background without displaying any Windows or Task Bar icons.
Restore Files From Multiple Dates / Multiple Version Restoration - All users have instant access to restore any version of their data files. Although each incremental backup contains the small changed portions of the file, the server software has the capability of recovering any version of a file from the initial backup to the last incremental backup and EVERY version in between.
Restore Files Multiple Ways - With Wild Blue Backup, you can restore your data from the client that is installed on the computer being backed up, On-Line at wbb1.wildbluebackup.com or if you need us to, we can mail you your data on DVD, Flash Drive or Hard Drive.
Automatic Online Updates/Upgrades - All version upgrades are distributed to all end-users automatically after completing a backup. Upgrades happen seamlessly without any user intervention required.
Event Manager - If a scheduled backup is missed, the next time the computer is started the Event Manager will display the missed event and allow the user to immediately perform the missed event. If a backup fails to complete successfully, the Event Manager will try the backup again when the computer or software is restarted. If a backup fails due to a network problem, the Event Manager will prompt the user to complete the backup at a later date.
E-mail Notification - The client software can be configured to send an e-mail to any user(s) upon any successful backup or
a backup with errors or warnings. A summary of the attempt is sent in the body of the message and the complete log file may be attached as an option.
Backup Sets - Wild Blue Backup the ability to create an unlimited number of backup sets. Since backup sets can be scheduled to run independently, a user can configure multiple backup sets to run at different times. For example, a backup set containing all data files can be configured to run at the end of each week and another backup set containing a single database file can be configured to run multiple times per day. All file versions will still be immediately available for the user to restore.
File Filters - Including or excluding files from the backup selection is possible with set filters that can be created manually or with an easy-to-use filter wizard. Filters can be created to include all data files on a users system to avoid hunting through a hard drive for all of the data files. Filters can easily be shared with any other users.
Enhanced Scheduling - The scheduling capabilities allow users to configure backups at any time, multiple times per day or even before Windows Shut Down. Additionally, any third party scheduling application can be used to run the backup application by scheduling simple command line calls to run an automated backup.
System Tray Control - Upon installation, a small application is configured to run in your Windows System Tray. (The Windows System Tray is located at the bottom right-hand corner of your computer screen.) This application monitors the scheduling process and give the end user quick access to a number of useful functions, including:
Backup and Close - Run a backup and then close the application when finished.
Backup and Logoff - Run a backup and logoff the system when finished.
Backup and Shutdown - Run a backup and shutdown the system when finished.
Backup and Restart - Run a backup and restart the system when finished.
Perform Full Backup - Perform full backup now.

Log File Review and Printing - All backup and restore transactions are thoroughly logged on the client and the server applications. The user can quickly review and print the client logs from the client application. The server maintains a Master Log of all general user activity and records detailed information for each user to help track usage and aid in technical support.
Configurable 3rd Party Tools - Wild Blue Backup supports the ability to run any 3rd party application(s) before or after a backup or restore action. For instance Wild Blue Backup can be configured to run a virus scanner before the backup and run a defragmentation utility after the backup. A virus scanner can also be configured to run after every restore process.
CPU Utilization - Since the FastBIT technology leverages the CPU power to get the great file reductions, it can be taxing on the processor. Since some backups are done while the user is working on the system and some backups are done after hours when the user is away, we allow the CPU utilization to be configured. Users can give the backup application all the processing power it needs, or make the backup application subordinate to other tasks.
Customizable Toolbars - Wild Blue Backup supplies useful toolbars for users. The toolbars can be customized and displayed based on the users individual preference to quickly access commonly used functions.
International Languages - Wild Blue Backup has been engineered to quickly accept translations to several languages including Basque, Catalan, Dutch, English, French, Galician, German, French and Spanish. Additional languages will be available in the future. Please contact us if you would like a localized version for a new language.
