Video Screenshot

The Old Standard Backup option creates the file KEYBACK.ZIP in the location specified by the To: setting.

Files: - defines the name(s) of file(s) to backup as *.* (to back up all files) by default. May be changed to *.DAT (to bypass temporary *.TMP files).

From: - defines the location from which files are back up as Data\ by default. May be changed to any folder location available on the network.

To: - defines the location (Drive and Folder) where the backup files are stored. For example: F:\Backup\KSData\. The To: setting may include drive letters that represent USB Stick drives and external hard disks.

Reformat Disks - enabled by default, reformats floppy disks using the quick format option before backup. Note: Does not format hard drives if selected.

Full (New Disks) - when enabled (disabled by default), the full format formatting option is used. Should be enabled when using new diskettes because factory formatting is unreliable.

Changed Files Only - when enabled (disabled by default), backs up only those files that have been changed since last backup.

Include Subdirectories - enabled by default, includes files in subfolders under the folder defined in the From: setting when backing up data.


Standard - Uses Keystroke's built-in 7-Zip backup (Supports 64-bit OS).

Custom - Use any backup system that can be run from a Command Prompt.

Quick Archive - Uses either 7-Zip or PKZip
