Local vs Cloud Backup
Instances in Which You Are Protected
AuditSoft Local Backup (Standard)
AuditSoft Cloud Backup (Recommended)
What's the difference?
Local Backup: AuditSoft automatically saves a copy of your audit file every 15 minutes. The files are saved to a hidden folder on your laptop (this is the Local Backup). The Local Backup can be used to recover your work if something happens to your operating system, power supply, or if your computer crashes and must be restarted. To ensure that you do not run out of space, we only keep your most recent 100 backups.
Local Backup is a built-in feature of the AuditSoft platform.
Cloud Backup: Local Backup is very helpful, but it cannot protect against incidents relating to hardware. If your laptop is stolen, your hard drive fails, or you drop your laptop in a pool while on vacation, then the Local Backup will not be accessible. To guard against these risks, AuditSoft Cloud Backup also stores a replica of all your local backup files on a cloud server. We keep all of these files indefinitely or until you delete them.
Cloud Backup is a recommended add-on priced at $100 yearly.
