Why create backup of Hotmail account?

Even though Hotmail is no longer officially used and was replaced by outlook, thousands of users made this shift and this means that they migrated along with their old data. This is why keeping a backup of your Hotmail data or any email data is more important than ever This is because most of our official communication happens over email and the volume of emails is extremely high. Most of us cannot afford to lose our data to the rising modern risks like ransomware and hacking. While some users might create Hotmail backups for security reasons, many companies have to maintain regular backups for compliance and other regulations. Playing it safe ensures that you never get hurt. This holds true for email backup and recovery.

These are the features of this Hotmail backup tool

Backup all Hotmail folders and related data

With Mail backup X, you don’t have to worry about missing any email items during Hotmail email backup. Everything is brought to a single place and you get a comprehensive backup of all the folders. None of the folders are left out unless you want them to. So overall, you don’t have to worry about missing anything. Everything is backed up without fail.

Automatic Incremental Hotmail backup

Incremental backups ensure that you always have a regularly updated backup. When you start with Incremental backup, the tool initially backs up your entire mailbox right from the first email that you received. Afterwards, the tool will only backup the new emails that arrive as they come. This ensures that whenever you want to use your backup, you can be sure that all your emails are in there, including the latest ones.

Choose what you want to back up in Hotmail

Mail backup X wonderfully provides an option for selective backups. You can choose the exact items or folders that you want. There are many times when a user might have to only backup a few files and not the entire mailbox. You can backup and download single folders if you want. You can also ignore the folders that you don’t want to backup or use. This is a great opportunity for users who want to have selective Hotmail backups whenever they want without any delays.

Remove data after downloading backup

You can also free up space after you have backed up the data that you want to back up. Since you can restore it anytime from an external location, many users set up a time frame after which old emails are automatically deleted and removed from active storage. These emails can also be deleted from the cloud storage if you are out of space. You can download the backup to an external hard drive where you might have available space.

Backup Hotmail in different formats

Using Mail backup X opens a lot of possibilities for its users. You are not limited or stuck with one format when it comes to backing up your mailbox data. You can backup Hotmail email messages in different formats like PST, EML, MSG, MBOX and EMLX etc. You can choose your preferred format.

Save Hotmail backup as PDF files

This feature gives a lot of exposure to your previously limited Hotmail email data. You can save the Hotmail archive in the PDF file format. Archiving email files in PDF format is very useful since these files can be viewed without the need for an email application. You can view these archives with any PDF viewer. Users also encrypt these PDF files so that there is no risk of unauthorized access by unwanted parties.

Save 3X space while you create Hotmail backup

 This is immensely useful for the users who have been putting off the Hotmail backup process due to lack of space. Mail backup X comes with an automatic compression feature which compresses the backed up data in 3X lesser space. This saves a lot of money for users in terms of cloud storage cost.

Smart Hotmail backup and resume

You can use this feature if you feel that you might have connectivity issues. Other common methods for email backup stop the process the moment they lose connectivity. This is why the designers of Mail backup X ensured that they remove this limitation. You won’t have to worry about losing connection since the tool will automatically detect the network loss and halt the process and save the progress. When the network connectivity is regained, the tool will detect it and resume the process from that very point. This will save a lot of time and effort for users who can’t afford to waste time.
