iconOnline Backup Estimator 3.1

The Online Backup Estimator will estimate the size of a full backup and subsequent daily backups and the time required to send them to an Online Backup Server, based on the current upload speed of the Internet connection. It scans the file system using the Best Practices for Include and Exclude settings as defined in Rob Cosgrove's Online Backup Guide for Service Providers published by Remote Backup Systems.
After the scan is complete you can view the files selected by clicking one of the View Files buttons. Use the Online Backup Estimator to fine tune the Include/Exclude settings. The changes you make to the Include/Exclude settings can be written to a file to be used in your online backup software.
This version of the Estimator displays advertisements while it runs. Partners and Service Providers of Remote Backup Systems will soon have access to a version of the Estimator without ads, that can export the Include/Exclude lists to RBackup.
IMPORTANT NOTES: The Online Backup Estimator only estimates backup sizes and times. Results will vary. Results do not account for sub-file backup methods like RBackup's BitBackup. A minimum pre-transmission file compression ratio of 50% is assumed. It can take a long time for the Estimator to run depending on drive size, number of files, computer speed, and options selected.
