Microsoft today announced support for backups of files and folders on PCs running Windows 10 through the Azure Backup cloud service. It’s a natural extension of Azure Backup following the launch of Windows 10 last month.
Once you’ve connected a PC running Windows 10 to Azure Backup, you can back up data to the cloud as often as three times a day, and data can stay in Azure “for almost 99 years,” Microsoft cloud and enterprise program manager Giridhar Mosay wrote in a blog post today.
The service only backs up “changed data” in order to keep network bandwidth usage low, Mosay wrote. And you can only restore certain files to a PC by selecting those you want through the Azure Backup desktop application.
In December, Microsoft introduced support for Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1 in Azure Backup. Now, naturally, Windows 10 backup is available through the service, too.
