Export of the encrypted files

An important aspect of any file encryption facility's design is that file data is never available in unencrypted form except to users that access the file via the encryption facility. This restriction particularly affects backup process, when data is exported to external storage.

MiaRec addresses this problem by keeping files in encrypted form during backup process. The backup utility don't have to be able to decrypt file data before backup.

It is safe to export encrypted files to backup archive. The backup archive may be imported back to the same system or to new system during recovery process. When importing data to new system, it is necessary to import old encryption key as well.
