Account Devices

You can log in to the same backup account from multiple devices. eazyBackup automatically bills for each device used, plans start with one device and can be modified at any time to support any number of additional devices.

Each device under an account has their own private Protected Items, but share a single Storage Vault. Because Storage Vaults are the unit of de-duplication, all backups from all devices in the account can be de-duplicated against each other. This also means that devices can restore each others’ data.

Devices can be revoked from your account from within the client area or from the control panel. Once a device is revoked you will no longed be billed for that device, you will always have a minimum of one device.

When a device is revoked, data from that specific device will be purged from the storage vault according to the retention policy on the vault. This is separate from the retention policy on the protected items. When a device is revoked, the protected items from that device are also removed. The data that belonged to those protected items will remain in the vault until the vault’s retention policy has expired (default is 30 days).

A device has a “friendly name” that is set  when it is first registered. The “friendly name” defaults to the hostname of the PC. Devices can be renamed in the control panel if needed.

Because additional devices incur a cost, there are limits placed on the total number of devices in an account. Billing plans must be modified from the client area for each device you want to add  / remove.
