Table of contents > The first time backup

Clicking "Backup Now" in the main window of CubeBackup will immediately start a backup of all Google Apps data.

"Backup Summary" shows a summary of essential information, such as the last backup time, the next scheduled backup, and the disk space available..

"Currently Processing" gives a live status report of the current backup process as it is being downloaded from the cloud.

Depending on the speed of your Internet connection, and how much data is being backed up, the very first full backup can take a considerable amount of time. Later backups will be much faster and more efficient, as only new or modified data will be downloaded.

The backup process will run in the background and will not affect any of your operations. You can simply click the “Close” button on the top-right corner to minimize the tool to the system tray.
