Druva can automatically back up files located within specified folders. The UMIACS distribution of Druva for the default profile already specifies certain folders on Windows and Mac for backup but you can manually configure additional folders to be backed up as well.

Add Folders to Backup

Some folders are already chosen for backup for the default profile and you will not need to manually select these. These folder are differentiated by the "Configured by Admin" tag seen next to the folder name. However, you can easily choose additional folders to be backed up from within the inSync client. Please refer to the instructions for your specific operating system.

Windows

(Some names/computer information were removed from the following images)

  • Open the inSync client
  • The main menu screen should appear similar to this:
As seen in the image, some folders are automatically configured for backup. By default, these are the only folders that are backed up.


  • To add additional folders to backup, choose the Add Folder option, the client will then show:
DruvaAddFolderCLEAN.jpg


  • From here additional folders can be selected for backup.
Chosen folders can have their sub folders either included or excluded from the backup as necessary.


  • After adding the folder, it should be visible in the list of folders on the main screen:
The Contacts and Favorites folders were simply chosen as an example here.


  • Chosen folders can be removed by clicking on folder in the list of chosen folders and then selecting the Remove Backup Folder option.

  • Chosen folders can be removed by clicking on folder in the list of chosen folders and then selecting the Remove Backup Folder option.
Sub folders can also be excluded from this screen.



Backup Profiles

We have two available profile types to choose from: Default and Power User. Both profiles have a hard quota of 250GB. If you reach this quota, additional files will not be backed up.

The Default Druva profile automatically chooses certain folders on Windows and Mac OS for backup, but for users who wish to specifically choose which folders are backed up or exclude certain folders, there is a Power User profile. Most users will start off in the Default profile and will need to contact the UMIACS Help Desk to be switched to the Power User profile as there is no way to choose this from the Druva client.

Default Profile

  • Default requires the following folders to be backed up:
    • Windows: My Documents, Desktop, System and App Settings, Favorites, Pictures, Office Templates
    • macOS: Documents, Desktop, Favorites, Pictures

Power User Profile

  • Power User requires no folders to be backed up, with the one exception of System and App Settings on Windows only. All customization is left to the user.
