Will this allow me to recover my full system?+
Comet’s Files & Folders Protected Item type backs up files and folders on the device. For full system recovery, we recommend using Comet’s Disk Image booster to create a bootable disk image backup of the entire system.
Does it take up additional storage space to run a Disk Image backup as well as a Files and Folders backup of the same PC?+
Comet deduplicates all data that is backed up to the same Storage Vault. If you run a Disk Image backup and a Files & Folders backup to the same storage location, there is a very high amount of overlap that will be deduplicated together, reducing your total storage requirements.
Is Comet able to back up open files?+
Yes, if you enable the “Take filesystem snapshot” checkbox. This checkbox is enabled by default, and causes Comet to take a VSS snapshot that allows it to back up open and in-use files, from a consistent point-in-time snapshot of your disk.
On macOS and Linux, Comet will back up open files without any special configuration.
Where can I back up my data to?+
Comet supports many storage destinations including Amazon S3, Google Cloud Storage, Wasabi, Backblaze B2, or you can bring your own hard drives or FTP/SFTP server.
Can I back up any file type or file size?+
Yes, Comet does not place any restrictions on the files you select for backup. You can also use wildcards and regular-expressions to find files for backup (e.g. all *.docx files on C:\].
You can back up files as large as you like, including large database or zip files. As a best practice, we recommend using other specific Protected Item types if Comet has a more specific integration available, such as the Microsoft SQL Server booster.
How does the pricing for Files & Folders work?+
Files & Folders backup is Comet's base offering. After adding your protected devices, you can choose additional boosters. The cost of protecting a single device with Files & Folders backup is $2/device per month (in USD]. Calculate your monthly usage with our Backup Cost Calculator.
