Encryption & compression for Google & Amazon Drive in CloudBerry Backup 5.6

CloudBerry Backup 5.6 packs a number of new features and improvements, among which is the highly-requested support for encryption and compression for Amazon Drive and Google Drive backup. Read on to learn how to enable the novelty in the latest edition of CloudBerry Backup.


Encryption and compression have been available in CloudBerry Backup for most cloud storage services for quite some time. In release 5.6 we take things further and expand the list with Google Drive and Amazon Drive. Complemented with encryption and compression, low pricing of these services gives users a great choice for backup destination. Let's proceed to set up encryption and compression in the software.


First things first, ensure that you've added a Google Drive or Amazon Drive to the list of available backup destinations.

Now that our cloud accounts are properly set up, let's go ahead and create a backup plan. Press Ctrl + B to launch the Backup Wizard. Select your Google Drive or Amazon Drive as your backup destination of choice.

Navigate to the encryption & compression step. Here you can select the available checkboxes as seen fit. You'll also need to specify the required encryption algorithm. CloudBerry Backup supports up to 256-bit AES encryption (military grade).

By the same token, you have to specify the encryption password when attempting to restore the files in the Restore Wizard.

Also, stay tuned for our cloud drives comparison that will be published shortly.
