Backup Pictures to Microsoft Windows Azure with Gladinet Cloud Desktop v1.4.2


Gladinet Cloud Desktop v1.4 includes the capability to define file type based backup sets. This gives users the ability to easily backup their pictures to Microsoft Windows Azure. As shown below, the user interface is very easy to use.

First, select “Backup My Pictures” from Gladinet Cloud Desktop’s systray menu.


After doing this, a backup wizard will appear. The first page allows selection of a name for the backup task and the included extensions. It also allows the addition of additional file types.


The second screen of the wizard shows the files and folders which the backup manager’s file finding algorithm will include in the backup set. The algorithm leverages NTFS indexing to find the files quickly. Thousands of files can be located in a couple of seconds. Once these files have been found, the user is given the opportunity to exclude files or folders from the backup set.


Finally, the user will arrive at the backup storage selection screen where they can select Microsoft Windows Azure or one of its subfolders as the backup location.
