Backup Exec by Symantec is a robust software solution that stores enterprise files across a network. The software has a graphical user interface that allows administrators to easily restore files that are corrupted or accidentally deleted. Using Backup Exec to restore files takes only a few steps. Restoring from Backup Exec means you have already performed a backup and have stored files on the desired media. Backup Exec automatically backs up files and directories configured in the program. This example assumes that you have the software installed and have already performed regular backups.
