How do I setup backups for my D-Link Share Center?

NOTE: In order to setup backups for your D-Link Share Center, you first need to connect your Share Center device to your D-Link Vault account. If you haven't done that yet, please see the How do I enable D-Link Vault Tutorial.


Setting up backup of your data from the D-Link Share Center to D-Link Vault is very easy. We have created a quick and easy interface to help you setup backups. Let's get started!


1.  Click on the Manage Cloud Backup button on the Share Center interface.



2. Enter user-name/password and click Log In.



3. Whenever you connect a new device to your D-Link Vault account, a setup tutorial will guide you through the setup process. It will identify the device by name that you have just connected. Simply click Get Started to begin the setup.



4. D-Link Vault gives you the freedom to either use default encryption keys or personalized encryption keys. Select the preferred option and click Next.




5. The next screen will show you a list of existing Shares on your D-Link Share Center device. For your convenience, D-Link Vault has created a folder called "D-Link Vault" and enabled it to backup to D-Link Vault. You can quickly drop any files or folders here and it will backup to D-Link Vault.

  • You can quickly start to backup any of these other shares as well. Just select Click to Enable Backup for any share that you want to backup.




6. A confirmation window will ask you to verify the NAS Share and path you are enabling. Just click Enable to continue.



7. Awesome! You've successfully enabled a backup for a share. Enable backups for any additional shares that you want backup. 

You will also notice that the Status of shares that you've just enabled will change to Enabled with a green icon. 



8. Click Finish to complete the setup process. We will take you to the Manage Backups section, where you can add additional backups for sub-folders, etc. 

 It may take several minutes to for the device to start showing up on your D-Link Vault account. To see the backups in progress, check out the Current Backup Activity report.
