Features of Stratesave
Base Features
  • Full Support for 64-bit Windows (x64) for local and networked backup. Stratesave run on a 32-bit or 64-bit computer can backup 32-bit and 64-bit networked computers.

    The common installer is 32-bit program. On 64-bit computer, the 64-bit version of Stratesave will be installed.

  • Stratesave backs up the Windows and NTFS specialities: Short filenames, Unicode, Registry, NTFS File Security, Event logs, Streams, Compressed files, Encrypted files, Sparse files, Links, Reparse points, COM+ database, Active Directory, SYSVOL, Certificate Authority database, Removable Storage database, System State, allowing for full backups and restores.

  • Stratesave can backup all international versions, including Japanese, Chinese, etc. with multibyte characterset file names.

  • Stratesave can be installed to run unattended as a Windows Service. The Remote Backup Control Feature allows you to control the Service and backups locally or remotely from Administrator or backup operator. The Service does not interact directly with desktop.

  • Disaster Recovery at Disk-crash: At Disk-crash, full restores can be made over a running system. The locked system files will automatically be replaced at next reboot. The individual Restore disk allows to restore if restore program is not available, without reinstalling Stratesave. It is sufficient to reinstall Windows. This feature also applies for network backed up PCs with network agent (see above).
    Full restore is supported for all Windows version, local and Networked. Disaster Recovery from Image backup or file backup is supported for Windows 7/2008/Vista/2003/XP (see above). The difference is, ASR Disaster Recovery, it is not necessary to reinstall Windows.

  • True compare is the must have security feature to detect dangerous modifications and trojan horses in your PC data and configuration.

  • Backups can be stored compressed to save storage space and backup time.

  • Backups can be stored encrypted to protect the backed up data from being read by others. Stratesave uses public/private key encryption. The public key can be stored on PC for regular backup, while the private key is still required for the restore. Stratesave uses advanced Encryption algorithms Elliptic curve, SHA1, AES Rijndael.

  • Email notification: Email will be sent optionally after successfull or failed backup, when a directory is no longer contained in any full backup, or when tape/disk is to be mounted.

  • Integrated scheduling: Scheduling integrated with backup plan supports for backup time windows, scheduling after days of week, days of month etc., to run the backup automatically
    Backups can be run with low priority in background, to minimize impact for normal computer usage.
    For backups to network share or sftp-Server, backup will automatically be done as soon as the computer is connected.

  • Pre/post-backup command: Allows a command or script to be run at start of backup or after backup. This can be used to dump a database, which is not supported by Stratesave, to file, which will then be backed up by Stratesave.

Reliability
  • Maximum data security: Files are protected with Checksums, automatically detecting storage faults and transmission errors. At restore, files will be controlled with checksum, warning you of data errors in backup.

  • The corrupted backup feature allows to restore as much as possible from even heavily corrupted backups. It will scan the entire backup, allowing to restore also files with corrupted file headers.

  • Compare runs or checksum control runs can be executed automatically after backup and later on demand. Files in backup will be controlled with checksum and also optionally by comparing the files in backup with files on PC.

Ease of Use
  • Stratesave has a Windows conform user interface including toolbar, making it easy to work with for Windows users.

  • Backup organisation with macros, describing the backup plan. The macros can be created and modified with the comfortable macro editor.

  • Flexible backup plans with daily, weekly, monthly etc. backups allow to restore from the latest as well as from older backups if old files or old file versions must be restored.

  • Stratesave tracks your activities and keeps a log that you can view or print. You don't have to remember when you did your backups and where you stored them.

  • All macros, executed backups and backed up files can be viewed and printed in clear lists.

  • Quick and easy installation, with provided Install and uninstall programs.

  • Online manual and help files guide users through various tasks.

Performance
  • Stratesave provides Open File Backup for Windows 7/2008/Vista/2003/XP, local and networked. Open File uses Volume Snapshot Service (VSS). This Service is included with Windows and provides a base for most accurate Backup and Restore. VSS Writers (programs which cooperate in the snapshot creation, for example SQL, Exchange, Hyper-V, Oracle, Sharepoint) are selectable. Stratesave backs up Writer Meta-Data. Stratesave Backup of System State also follows VSS guidelines.

  • Disaster Recovery without reinstalling Windows and Stratesave is provided for Windows 7/2008/Vista/2003/XP, local and networked. Disaster Recovery uses Automated System Recovery. This Service is included with Windows 2008, Vista, 2003 and XP and is a base for most accurate full Recovery, with the help of a Disaster Recovery floppy disk or Bart CD/DVD (Windows 2003/XP) or Windows PE 2.0 / Vista PE (Windows 2008/Vista). Network can be configured with a Wizard interface for remote Disaster Recovery from a networked backup Server, or local if backup is stored on network drive.
    For Remote Disaster Recovery it is not necessary to create the floppy disk in advance. it can be created on the Backup Server from the stored backup when needed.
    Remote Disaster Recovery with Stratesave running on a networked computer needs VistaPE for Windows Vista/2008, because required Server Service is not included with Windows PE.

  • Database Backups: Agents for backup of running Exchange Server 2007/2003/2000/5.5, SQL Server 2005/2000/7.0. Stratesave uses programming APIs provided with database for accuracy of backed up data. Supported are full, differential and incremental backups of SQL and Exchange Server. Incremental backups are for very frequent backups, e.g. every 10 minutes, to be able recover the databases to almost actual state in case of unexpected disk crash. At restore, Stratesave automatically restores full, differential and all incremental backups in correct order. Databases can be restored to original location, alternate location or optionally to file, for further manual processing.
    VSS full backups through SqlServerWriter or MSDEWriter can be combined with standard SQL Server differential and incremental backups.

Backup Media
  • Backup media: Fixed disks, including network drives on a server, Sftp-Server (Unix/Linux or Windows with Sftp Server Software, optionally with server certificate), Tapes and Removable disks and CD/DVD.

  • Backup tape drives: SCSI DAT, DLT, LTO or 8mm (including VXA, Mammoth). Currently not supported are OnStream drives. Travan drives are supported with limitations, namely backups cannot be stored one behind the other on the same Travan tape.

  • Removable disk drives: DVD+-RW, CD-RW, CD-R, ZIP + others. Stratesave has built in Driver Engine for backup to CD/DVD. Stratesave's built-in Driver Engine works best with DVD+RW rewritable media (DVD-RW supported but DVD+RW preferred). Alternatively, installed packet writing Software can be used.

  • Stratesave uses standard formats: Uncompressed backups are stored in TAR-format, allowing to restore even if the restore program is not available, in an emergency. Tapes are formatted following the ANSI Tape standard, which includes a protection if the wrong tape is mounted by mistake. Backups can be extended over two or more tapes or removable disks.

  • Support for tape autoloaders/mediachangers. Stratesave supports Removable Storage Manager (RSM). Alternatively, direct access mode is provided for SCSI tape autoloaders.
