Downloading and installing the Dataprotect software and configuring your backup is a relatively quick process, but the intitial (one time only) full upload of your selected files can takes hours depending on your upload speed and the total size of the files you wish to back up with us.
Fortunately this process happens in the background and requires very little processing power or attention.
Use our Upload Time Calculator to give you an idea of how much time it will take for your upload. It is located on the right side of this page.
Get your Upload Speed
Once the test has finished, type the upload speed (shown in the top right of the test results) into the field labeled "Upload Speed (Mbps) on the right"
Amount of Data
Enter the amount of data you would like to back up into the "Data (GB)" field on the right. This value must be in gigabytes, otherwise your calculation will be inaccurate.
