Symantec System Recovery 2011 is an application that allows the computer to recover immediately during downtime. It can recover folders and files in just a few seconds. This fast recovery of files is due to Symantec's Restore Anyware technology. To recover files faster, it allows the backup copy to be recovered from a remote computer. Furthermore, it allows the user to schedule the creation of a backup. When this is done, the archiving process is done automatically. The backup process can run in the background. This allows the user to perform other tasks on the computer while it is being completed.
Symantec System Recovery 2011 encrypts the data to secure it from viruses and other threats. When creating backups, it can create a copy of the entire computer, from the PC's operating system down to the music files stored on folders. While the backups can be saved on the computer itself or a remote server, it can also be saved on portable hard drives. Furthermore, the backup can also be used to migrate all the computer’s files to another PC.
The program also has a system recovery feature. This allows the user to restore the computer to its previous state.
