Site Backup and Restore helps protect account files, databases, email accounts, email forwarders, and filters from loss. Restoring files is quick, simple, and easy. Backups are created automatically daily, weekly, and monthly. Users can download a copy of their entire site for safekeeping any time they want for peace of mind.
The free version backs up the data, but users cannot restore databases. The Pro tools give users the power to restore any file(s)/database(s) necessary. It grants them the ability to restore either all databases or a specific database. This extends to files, where customers can restore individual files or folders. This is helpful if only one of their sites was affected by something, and they don't want to restore unaffected content.
