5 Introducing the Clickfree C6 Introducing the Clickfree C6 HOW IT WORKS The Clickfree C6 backup drive is the easiest way to protect the data on your computers, with no effort at all, by automatically searching for and backing up onto its built-in hard disk all the content stored on each computer. No hardware configuration or software installation is required. The Clickfree C6 is the only external hard-drive in the Clickfree product lineup that backs up the computer's entire contents including the Windows operating system, installed software programs, as well as all personal content stored on the computer's hard-drives. The Clickfree C6 also comes with a unique feature called EASY Fix. The EASY Fix is a suite of tools that allow the user to perform: Emergency Backup/Recovery - Recover personal files even after Windows has crashed and will not restart. Repair/Reset Easily repair your computer including your Windows operating system and software programs from a previous backup, without affecting your personal files. See details in "Repairing your computer" on Page 16. Reimage - In the case of a computer hard drive failure, easily reimage everything onto your computer's new hard drive. See details in "Re-Imaging your computer" on page 17. The first time you connect a C6 to your computer it searches for and backs up all of your important content as well as the Windows operating system and your software applications. The C6 can be connected to any number of computers to allow them to also be backed up. When Clickfree has finished backing up each computer, you can disconnect the C6 and connect it to a different computer, or leave the C6 connected to the computer to easily update your backup in the future (you can also schedule a backup automatically -- see Scheduling automatic backups on page 22). Please note that the limit is on the available space on the Clickfree C6 and not on the number of PCs that can be backed up. It is also possible to back up to CDs or DVDs instead of using the built-in hard disk; see How do I back up onto CDs or DVDs? (EASY Archiver) on page 27.

6 Introducing the Clickfree C6 DEFINITIONS Backup and Restore A backup is a copy of data on your computer. Backups can be used to restore data after loss of or damage to your computer s hard disk, to restore files that have been accidentally deleted or corrupted, or to move or copy data from one computer to another. Making a backup of your content only copies it from your computer to your C6, and does not delete it from the computer s hard disk. Similarly, when you restore content, it only copies it from your C6 to your computer, and does not delete it from the C6. Content A backup is meant to be a second copy of your computer data, not the only copy of your data. Clickfree backs up your Windows operating system and software applications, as well as data that you have created, such as music, photos, letters, s, tax information etc. In this guide we refer to the data that you created as content. This is an important distinction because the normal Restore function (described on page 10) only restores your content. If you need to restore your operating system and software applications, you must use the EASY Fix function (see page 14). WHAT GETS BACKED UP? When it runs automatically, Clickfree backs up everything on your computer: Photos including common graphic formats such as JPEG and RAW Music including CD audio, MP3, MIDI Video e.g. AVI, MPEG, Shockwave Flash s including Microsoft Outlook, Windows Live Mail, Thunderbird, Eudora Documents e.g. from Microsoft Word, Open Office, and WordPerfect Spreadsheets e.g. Microsoft Excel, Open Office, and Lotus 123 Presentations e.g. Microsoft Powerpoint and Corel Show Illustrations such as Corel Draw, Visio, Photoshop and Paintshop images Financial such as those from Quicken, QuickBooks and tax programs Windows and Programs operating system and software applications All Others including, but not limited to, zip and RAR files, XML, and CSV files The first time you back up your computer, C6 backs up all of the content it finds, as well as the operating system and software applications, which might take several hours. Each time you use Clickfree after that, it only backs up the new or changed files, so it will be much faster. Any files that were deleted from your computer since the last backup are not deleted from the C6. Copyright 2011 Storage Appliance Corporation. 6
7 Introducing the Clickfree C6 FEATURES Customizable backup options to exclude folders; remembers your customized settings for each computer you use it with. Multi-computer backup -- can hold the backups for as many computers as you like, limited only by the available space on the C6. Multi-version backup the first backup is a full backup, while each subsequent backup is incremental (i.e. only new/modified files will be backed up). you can select which version to view or restore. EASY Restore - easily restore to same or other computer -- a great way to move your content from your old computer to your new one. EASY Imaging - full computer imaging -- because the C6 backs up your Windows operating system and software applications, you can easily recover from a hardware crash. EASY Viewer -- conveniently view backed-up photos in thumbnail and expanded view. View all other files as easily as if it is on the original computer EASY Music - easily import music from your ipod/iphone/ipad to your computer and to itunes. EASY Fix easily recover from computer crashes caused by viruses or software corruption often within minutes! WHAT DO I NEED BEFORE I START? Your computer must be running one of these operating systems: Microsoft Windows 7 (any editions) Microsoft Windows Vista (any editions) Microsoft Windows XP (any editions) In addition you need: One free USB port (preferably USB 3.0, but compatible with USB 2.0 and USB 1.1) on your computer At least 100 MB of free space on your computer Copyright 2011 Storage Appliance Corporation. 7
8 Backing Up Backing Up Even though Clickfree backs up your operating system and software applications, it is safe to continue working while the backup is running. However, keep in mind that the snapshot is created when backup starts and it can take some time to complete, so any files modified during the backup will not be included and you will need to run an incremental backup afterwards. 1. Make sure that your computer is switched on and has finished starting up. 2. If this is a Clickfree C6 Desktop version, connect the C6 power adapter to a wall outlet or power bar and the other end to the C6. 3. Connect one end of the USB cable to the C6 and the other end to a USB port on your computer. 4. When Clickfree starts to run, a Welcome window appears and shows the number of seconds left before the backup starts automatically: The Viewer and Restore/Transfer buttons appear at the bottom of the window after at least one backup exists on your C6. Unless you stop the countdown by clicking a button, at the end of the countdown period Clickfree starts the backup. If you want to let Clickfree decide what needs to be backed up from where, you don t need to do anything further. For details, see What gets backed up? on page 6. If you want to exclude one or more folders from the backup, click Options and see How do I exclude folders from the backup? on page 21. Copyright 2011 Storage Appliance Corporation. 8
9 Backing Up 5. During the backup, Clickfree displays a progress window. When you see the Backup Summary window after the backup is complete, simply click Close. You re done! 6. Disconnect the C6 and keep it in a safe place. Repeat these steps for each computer you want to back up. Set up an automatic backup schedule so you don t have to worry about a thing. See Scheduling automatic backups on page 22. Copyright 2011 Storage Appliance Corporation. 9
10 Restoring Content Restoring Content You can restore your content to any computer that meets the system requirements (see What do I need before I start? on page 7), not just to the computer the content was backed up from. To restore files from more than one computer, simply repeat the restore process choosing a different computer each time. WHAT GETS RESTORED, AND TO WHERE? The Restore function only restores your content (data you created). If you need to reimage your operating system and software applications, use the EASY Fix function (see page 14). You can choose whether to restore all or just selected content, and where the content is restored to or you can allow Clickfree to make the choices for you. If you don t change any options, Clickfree restores all of the content that was backed up, and puts it in the same folders on your computer that it was backed up from. If you are restoring over files of the same name, Clickfree overwrites these files on the computer with the ones on the C6. Alternatively, you can restore your files to a different location on your computer so they don t overwrite any existing files. RESTORE -- LET CLICKFREE DECIDE WHAT TO RESTORE AND TO WHERE 1. Connect the C6 to your computer and wait for the Welcome window to appear. If you are restoring content to a new computer that has never been connected to the C6, plug the C6 in to your new computer. 2. Before the countdown gets to zero, click Restore/Transfer. 3. The Restore window appears. Note that all of the categories that have backed-up content are checked off in the Select Category column. 4. Look at the computer name in the Restore From box: The drop-down list contains the names of all of the computers that have been backed up on your C6. Select the computer you wish to restore from. Clickfree will restore all categories selected from that computer s most recent backup to the original locations. Copyright 2011 Storage Appliance Corporation. 10
11 Restoring Content 5. Click Start Restore. During a Restore, your content will be copied from the C6 to the computer and will not be deleted from your Clickfree backup: it is still safe on the C6. RESTORE -- CHANGE HOW CLICKFREE RESTORES CONTENT By making choices at several steps in the restore process you can control which content is restored and where it is restored to. You can also restore from an older backup instead of the most recent. 1. Follow steps 1-3 from Restore -- Let Clickfree decide what to restore and to where on page Click Switch to Advanced Restore. Select the computer whose content you want to restore to this computer, and the backup to be restored: 3. All categories that contain files on the selected backup are selected. If there are any categories that you do not want to restore, click the check box to clear it. If the check box is not enabled, that means that there are no files for that category on the selected backup. When a category is selected or deselected, all of the file types that make up that category are also selected or deselected. To restore individual files within a category, click the category name and then select the files to be restored. To locate particular files to be restored, click Explorer View and select the files to be restored. 4. When you are finished selecting files, click Next. 5. On the Select Location to Restore Files window, indicate where to restore the content.

If Clickfree restored your files to a folder that was not their original location, Clickfree puts an icon on your Restore Summary page so that you can quickly and easily get to the restored content: Double-click the icon to open Windows Explorer to the folder where your content was restored. You can now use Explorer to move the files to a more convenient folder. MY PROGRAM CANNOT FIND THE RESTORED FILES WHAT SHOULD I DO? Some programs expect to find their files in a particular folder. If you restore files to a folder other than the original location, your program may not be able to find them. If your program displays an error message telling you that it cannot find its files, or if the program starts up but your data is missing, you will need to move the files to the proper folder. Unfortunately, this is different for every application and you may need to consult the program s online help or user guide to find out where the files need to be moved to.

20 Frequently Asked Questions WHAT IF CLICKFREE DOESN T START UP AUTOMATICALLY? There are a couple of reasons why Clickfree does not run when you plug in the C6: If you connected the C6 to a USB hub, the hub may not provide enough power for the C6. Try connecting directly to a USB port on the computer itself. If you see a message telling you that Clickfree Backup cannot start because you do not have the required permissions. Please re-login to this computer as the Administrator. : Log out. Unplug the C6. Log in again as Administrator. Plug the C6 in again. The backup then starts automatically. Your computer settings may prevent Clickfree from running automatically because Autorun is turned off.

Copyright 2011 Storage Appliance Corporation. 20
21 Frequently Asked Questions IS THE CLICKFREE C6 GOING TO DO A FULL BACKUP OF MY COMPUTER EVERY TIME I CONNECT THE CLICKFREE DEVICE? No. By default, the first backup that the C6 does on each computer is a Full backup and will take longer. All subsequent backups for the same computer are incremental (i.e. only new/modified files will be backed up). In addition, if files are moved from one directory to another on the computer, they will not be backed up again and only the directory information will be updated. HOW DO I EXCLUDE FOLDERS FROM THE BACKUP? Clickfree backs up everything on your computer except for any folders you choose to exclude. Any changes you make to how Clickfree does backups are used for subsequent backups on this computer unless you modify them or revert to factory settings. 1. Connect the C6 to your computer and wait for the Welcome window to appear. 2. Before the countdown gets to zero, click Options. The Manage Settings and PCs window is displayed. 3. In the left side of the window, click on the computer that you want to change settings for, then click Backup Settings. 4. Choose the folder(s) you want Clickfree to exclude: To exclude a folder and all folders below it, make sure that the check box is checked. To see details of a folder, click the + to the left of the check box. This expands the folder to show the folders below it, and changes the + to a -.

You can only exclude folders from being backed up. Copyright 2011 Storage Appliance Corporation. 21
22 Frequently Asked Questions SCHEDULING AUTOMATIC BACKUPS The Clickfree scheduler runs a backup automatically as long as the C6 is connected to the computer. The default scheduler interval is once a day. If you want to change it: 1. Connect the C6 to your computer and wait for the Welcome window to appear. 2. Before the countdown gets to zero, click Options. 3. Click the Scheduler tab. The backup schedule for this computer is shown. 4. Choose the appropriate interval and time to start the backup. 5. Indicate if the scheduled backup should wake the computer from sleep. If this is not selected, the backup will run the next time the computer is active. Note: Although a scheduled backup will wake your computer from sleep mode, it will not run if the computer is hibernating. 6. Click OK. At the set time interval, a backup is started automatically, with no intervention from you, as long as the C6 is connected to the computer. However, if your C6 uses password protection, the scheduled backup is delayed until you enter the password. WHAT IF THERE IS NOT ENOUGH SPACE ON MY C6? If you are using the Clickfree C6 Home Backup to backup several computers and run out of space, you may want to consider using multiple C6s. While Clickfree is searching for content to back up, it adds up the amount of disk space needed and compares that with the free space on the C6. If there is not enough free space for your content, Clickfree will try to remove older backups for the same computer to free up space (you will be notified before Clickfree attempts to remove your older backups). In the case where the required space is more than the total size of the Clickfree drive (for example, there are already backups of other computers or there are non-clickfree files stored on the device), Clickfree will prompt you to change the Backup Settings to exclude one or more folders from the backup or to remove a previously backed up PC. When the Start Backup button is enabled (turns orange), click Start Backup. Backup proceeds as usual. Alternatively, if you have backups from an old computer on the C6 that you don t need to keep any more, you could cancel the backup, remove the old computer (see Removing a computer on page 24), and restart the backup. Copyright 2011 Storage Appliance Corporation. 22
23 Frequently Asked Questions WHAT IF THERE IS MORE THAN ONE USER ON MY COMPUTER? When Clickfree runs, it can only back up the content that you can access from your login, and restore content to locations you have access to. Because Windows XP and Windows Vista maintain a separate Documents or My Documents folder for each user, Clickfree can back up only the corresponding content that belong to the person who is logged in, unless that person logs in as an Administrator and data is not encrypted by the other user. CAN I BACK UP MORE THAN ONE COMPUTER? C6 can backup as many computers as you like: you are limited only by the amount of space on your C6. Clickfree creates a unique identifier for each computer that it is used with, regardless of the computer s name. This allows Clickfree to back up content for more than one computer without the files getting mixed up with each other, even if all of the computers have the same name. You can change the name of a computer after backup to make it easier to remember which computer is which. If you are backing up several computers and run out of space, you may want to consider using multiple C6s. See What if there is not enough space on my C6? on Page 22 HOW IS BACKUP DIFFERENT WHEN I HAVE MORE THAN ONE COMPUTER? It makes no difference at all - just plug the C6 in to each computer to do the first back up. Each time you back up a computer for the first time, its name is added to the drop down list of computers that you see on the Backup Summary, Restore Summary, and Options windows. Whenever you want to backup a computer, just connect the C6 to the computer. FINDING THE NAME OF A COMPUTER 1. Connect the C6 to your computer and wait for the Welcome window to appear. 2. Before the countdown gets to zero, click Options. All of the computers that Clickfree has backed up on your C6 are shown at the left side of the window, with the computer names underneath. When you click one of the computers, Clickfree shows: the computer name the amount of space taken up by backed-up content for that computer the date and time of last backup Copyright 2011 Storage Appliance Corporation. 23
24 Frequently Asked Questions RENAMING A COMPUTER 1. On the Manage Settings and PCs window, click the computer whose name you want to change. 2. Click Rename PC. 3. Type the new name for the computer and click Save. Use only letters, numbers and hyphens for the computer name. REMOVING A COMPUTER If you no longer want to keep content backed up from a computer (for example, you may no longer have that computer, and have already restored its content to another computer), you can free up space on your C6 by removing the old computer and its backup from Clickfree. 1. On the Manage Settings and PCs window, click the computer you want to remove. 2. Click Remove PC. You are prompted to confirm that you want to remove it. Once you have removed a computer from Clickfree there is no way to recover that computer s content from the C6. Clickfree may take several minutes to erase the data, depending on the amount of content backed up on the C6. To see how to remove the content from all computers, see Resetting the C6 on page 26. HOW DO I MAKE MULTIPLE BACKUPS? Clickfree stores multiple backups from each computer. The first backup is a full backup, and each subsequent backup is incremental (only the files that changed from the previous backup). USING PASSWORD PROTECTION DO MY FILES NEED PASSWORD PROTECTION? If your C6 is lost or stolen, anyone with a computer that meets the hardware and software prerequisites can restore files from your C6 simply by connecting the C6 to their computer, unless the C6 is protected by a password. You should protect your files using a password if the content you have backed up is sensitive in any way and there is any possibility that the C6 could be lost or stolen. Copyright 2011 Storage Appliance Corporation. 24
25 Frequently Asked Questions If you set a password, a scheduled backup is delayed until you enter the password. See Scheduling automatic backups on page 22 for more details.
