Manage your files in a better way with Windows® 7
Now it is far more easier to manage your files in Windows 7. The operating system allows you to backup and share your files over the network with an enhanced file sharing mechanism.
Back up your files over the network
Backup and restore function in Windows 7 enables you to create the safety copies of the most important files. Windows itself chooses what to back up, you just need to set the schedule and then forget about it. You can take a backup on another drive. And if you are using Professional or Ultimate edition of Windows 7, you need not keep the drives as you also have the option of backing up your files to a network.
You can set up your network to save the copies of critical files. It will surely prove to be a worthwhile investment as a Home Network backup can easily maintain the copies of the electronic data files thus securing the data in case of theft, disaster and computer failures. You have the option to choose from online service or Home Network backup. There are different methods by which you can set your data on Home Computer Network, such as backups to CD-ROM or DVD-ROM discs, network backups to a local server and online backups to a remote hosting service.
One simple way to keep the data is to “burn” copies onto discs. Most of the homes have at least one computer on the network. In such cases, you can set up file sharing, and data can be transferred onto the optimal disc over the home network. Whereas in network backup to a local server, you don’t require to burn several disks considering setting up a backup server on your home network. A backup server has a large hard disk drive and network to receive other home network files. If you are considering network backup to a Remote Hosting Service, many Internet sites offer backup hosting services which results in automatic network backups.
All these features help the user to have the full control over the flies which are backed up and you can have automatic backup capability with suitable software in Local Servers Backup. In Remote Hosted Backup, your data is saved with lower risk from theft.
File sharing enhancement
To provide improved user productivity, Windows 7 has also introduced file sharing enhancements. This new feature is of great help to IT professionals who can take advantage of this attribute to elevate the user productivity in branch offices.
It helps the user by providing a transparent caching for shared folders on client users, which help them by reducing the time, if the network is slow, to access files for subsequent times. Protocol enhancement is combined to it to give improved application that removes the non required network operations while opening and saving files. For offline files, Background synchronization capabilities are added that reduces administrative overhead providing elevated end-user experience.
Earlier, whenever you needed to open a file over a slow network, the file was retrieved from the server computer even if you recently went through the file, but with Windows 7 transparent caching you no more face this problem as client computer cache remote files faster.
The server computer is always contacted in Windows 7 to give data integrity and to make sure that the available cached copy is up-to-date. The user cannot access the cache if the server computer is unavailable. Group policy can be used by the IT professionals to enable the transparent caching.
Background synchronization for offline files
In Windows 7 the user doesn’t need to select between online and offline modes as the synchronization automatically happens in the background. Earlier, if the user was online then updates were written to the server computer and if the user was offline then the updates were cached on the client computer disk and could be synchronized only when the user is online.
This feature has become far more better with the improved Folder Redirection tool. IT professionals can enable Folder Redirection and synchronization using Group Policy.
If the user disconnect from the network, the local copies are opened by Windows 7 as if the user is connected to the network and whenever the user connects the next time, it changes the synchronization. This provides him with automatic data backup.
