Why must you have BaQapp protected storage?

Proper backup will protect you from ransomware extortion, but only if you do it right, and that means backups must be vaulted, versioned, verified and automated.
An infected computer can spread the infection to USB attached or 'mapped' drives and thumb drives, network file shares or even cloud drives that appear as network drives and other connected computers.
Ransomware can delete Windows volume shadow copies (VSS) or System Restore functions you might otherwise deploy.


What is BaQapp?

BaQapp is a internationally used low cost network backup application with advanced features to protect your home, business or organisation from data loss.
BaQapp connects through your local network protecting multiple PCs and servers (endpoints), for one fixed cost.
Your data, systems, software and settings will be safe from malware, ransomware, disk failure, accidental and malicious data loss while ensuring that you have current proper backups.

BaQapp backup data is protected from media bit rot loss having been saved with extra data, enabling automatic recovery of lost and damaged bits.

BaQapp insulates and protects your data from ransomware through hardened vaulted storage and does NOT use mapped drives that easily permit malware infection.

Baqapp Safety


  • Automatically encrypted backup storage
  • Bit rot protection
  • Backup protection from malware or user error
  • Non mapped storage

Data Storage

BaQapp offers de-duplication where identical files even from different endpoints are only copied once, saving storage space.

BaQapp compresses the amount of data with block level deduplication, or Delta copying with only changes stored. If recovery is required the file system will combine the parts of the file to make a full restore.

An image of a hard drive is an exact copy of the drive that can be used to quickly and completely restore everything; settings, fonts, desktop, programs. BaQapp's default settings makes an exact full image of each drive every 30 days, and then every 7 days stores only the changes, known as incremental backups.

BaQapp stores the backups in a non-proprietary format, with the ability to restore the data using standard tools, as long as you have the encryption key.

BaQapp easily copies or clones all its backup data to another attached drive(s), which can be stored offsite. Attaching the drive to the BaQappBoxx updates automatically.



  • Automatic file deduplication
  • Transparent file compression
  • Disk image backup
  • Non proprietary format
  • Fast replication offsite, to additional HDD

Monitoring and Reports

Setting up BaQapp to send you email reports is easy. Just enter your email address when configuring BaQapp.

Default reporting includes weekly global email reports on all the endpoints that should be backed up,drawing attention to any endpoint backups that are more than 10 days overdue by email.

The BaQapp monitoring service generates email reports from data generated and sent by the user's BaQapp software on BaQapp's Microsoft Azure server. If the BaQapp system stops operating, users will still receive reports, noting that no reports are being received.

For real peace of mind, if your mobile phone number is entered when configuring BaQapp, you will receive a SMS reminder if backups are a few weeks behind.

BaQapp Pty Ltd has no access to your data. The monitoring system only receives an extract of the backup report text file, which contains only the endpoints last file and image backup dates.



  • Easy reporting setup
  • Consolidated backup reports via email
  • Third party backup monitoring
  • SMS

System Controls

BaQapp will backup multiple endpoints, unlike many other network backup systems that can charge $50.00 and more per seat or endpoint.
