Below is a step-by-step guide to set up a Physical Connector to back up your device data.

  1. Sign in to Keepit.
  2. Under Physical Connectors, select Download to get the installer file. Keepit will detect if you are on a Windows or Mac and display the relevant installer file.
  3. Confirm the download by selecting Download.
  4. Run the installer file and follow the instructions. You will see the sign-in box. Enter your credentials. 
  5. On the first login, you will see a box to configure which folders to include in your backup. The default settings include your most important folders and documents, and the desktop. You can uncheck a folder if you do not want it to be included in your backup. Click Next to launch the backup.
  6. After installation, the Keepit icon is visible in the taskbar (bottom screen on Windows, top screen on Mac).
  7. Your computer will now be visible in the Keepit platform under the Physical Connectors section. You can rename the connector by clicking the gear icon, and then entering a new name in the field next to the icon.
  8. Keepit will now start synchronizing all your selected data to the Keepit Cloud and keep your important data secure and backed up.
    Note: The first time you need to synchronize all your data, it will probably take some time to complete, depending on the speed of your internet connection and the data size.
