Cloud Backup

PlayoutONE Cloud backup allows you backup your PlayoutONE Pro or PlayoutONE Standard Data directly to Dropbox, Google Drive or Microsoft One Drive. 

Should something be scheduled in the PlayoutONE Pro Log and the audio becomes corrupt or missing before playback, PlayoutONE Cloud Backup can automatically rescue the audio. Similarly, if a user accidentally deletes or overwrites an audio file, PlayoutONE Cloud Backup retains the last 10 revisions of any file so you can restore the exact copy you want within seconds. Should your station ever be subjected to a ransomware attack, you can restore all of your files to another clean machine within hours not days.

Scott Clements from PlayoutONE Support shows you how to set this up, or you can choose to follow the document below.
