Copying files to the Web Archive

If you have important documents or photos that you want backed up, but not synchronized, you should upload them to the Web Archive. For example, you may want to back up tax returns, old photos, and a scanned copy of your passport. These types of documents won't change and don't need to be kept in synchronization with other computers.  

Although you can view the contents of the Web Archive folder from the Webroot File Manager, this folder does not reside on your home computer and you cannot view it from Windows Explorer. The contents of the Web Archive physically reside on the Webroot servers, accessible from your SecureAnywhere account.

To copy files to the Web Archive:

  1. Open the main interface.

  2. From the Backup & Sync panel, click Open File Manager.

  3. In the Webroot File Manager, right-click Web Archive to display the pop-up menu, then select either Import Files or Import Folder.

  4. From the dialog that opens, select the files or folders you want archived.

    The files are instantly copied to the Web Archive in your online SecureAnywhere account. The Webroot File Manager shows the folders or files under the Web Archive folder. The Status column in the middle panel shows "Backed Up" next to each file that uploaded successfully.

Note: Your files remain in their original location. The Backup & Sync Manager does not move the files, only copies them.

If you want to verify that the file or folder was loaded into your online account, log in to my.webrootanywhere.com and click Go to Backups.
