A. The bitsdrive Cloud Backup gives you the option to choose any folder you wish to backup on the Cloud. All of your important office documents, images, music, videos etc. can be kept safe in their original folder on the Cloud.
However, storing every file from your computer to the Cloud is not a good idea. This is because many of the files on your computer are specific to that installation, and will not work if they are placed on another machine. Adding unnecessary files to your backup set will also increase the time it takes to upload your files to the Cloud and in some cases will stop the files uploading that you wish to upload.
Applications, Apps, Program Files, Temporary Files, Windows and Mac OS files should not backup to the Cloud. If you require specific program files to be backed up, such as e-mails or Photoshop files that you have created then please contact us for assistance.
Also if your computer has more than one user account, a single user can’t backup other user accounts (because of profile permissions); doing so will cause problems with your operating system. To backup other users, each user will need to configure BitsDrive on their user profile by downloading the software.

A. Yes, your data will be visible across all licences. If you wish your data to be private then you will have to buy licences individually each with a separate account and separate username and password.
E.g. if you are a family with five people, you can buy five licences under one account (easier to see all computers’ data and cheaper) but then each family member will have access to all data on other computers. The other way is to buy five accounts with a single licence each, this way each family member will have access only to his/her data.
