MrBackup implements through a number of value added resellers and supports backup protocols for the following commercial software packages:

Designed for Windows, MrBackup can quickly and easily backup all computer files. 

Bare metal and OS recovery is not part of the MrBackup data storage scheme. Instead MrBackupassumes that critical data exists because of client’s business activities, created on a standard Windows computer. No special server or hardware is required. MrBackup works on ordinary Windows XP or Windows 7 computers, as well as Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008. 
To attempt a backup of ‘everything’ is probably a waste of resources — instead identify the critical data, and make sure that data is properly backed up, regularly.

Microsoft Outlook    MrBackup can easily backup Microsoft Outlook files.  

Outlook keeps its email in personal storage folders. These files can be easily backed up and restored. Normal Microsoft restrictions apply. Your .pst file contains all the local Outlook folders, such as Calendar, Inbox, Tasks, Sent Items, Outbox, Deleted Items, and user-created folders. To automatically back up these folders, MrBackup can create a backup of your .pst files and stored them off-site.

MrBackup is compatible with and uses SQLBackupAndFTP as a tool.  

Various commercial and open source products use SQL databases. SQL data exists in non-human readable format on disk. SQL data can not simply be backed up with a copy&paste. In order to make a usable SQL backup, it is typically necessary to export the SQL data into a file disk. It can be quite a complicated process. This link to LegalSuite shows just how complicated the process could be: MrBackup can automate this process.

Microsoft SQL Server is a common SQL back end product used by various commercial products, such as 

  • Korbitec’s GhostConvey
  • LegalSuite

TurboCash 4 is the best known user of this SQL product. Open source multi-platform. TurboCash 4 uses FireBird 2.1 which is not suitable for making hot backups. It is suggested that the backup process be initiated only after the completion of a TurboCash 4 user session.
Lexpro Systems runs on PostgreSQL 9+. Open source multi-platform.
The world’s most popular open source database.

  • LegalSoft  collections software.

dBase uses the well known .DBF file name extension. Many applications use these files, originating with dBase 3 and later. Note that .DBF file format could also indicate a FoxPro database. Internal file structure and format differs between applications: dBase III and FoxPro uses the same .DBF extension, but the internal file content is not necessarily compatible. Also, FoxPro will by default create a runtime .BAK file while editing a .DBF file. 

  • Microsoft Works supports this file format
  • Lexpro legacy installations
  • Med-e-Mass installations
Microsoft Access is the back end data storage solution of choice for a large number of SME’s. Many custom software solutions are developed using this product.

  • LegalPerfect uses an MS Access database.
