07-12-2020 19:00:09


Seqrite Backup Feature allows you to take periodic backups of important data files present on the endpoints.

By default, the following types of files are backed up by the Seqrite backup feature:

File Type Extension
Text .txt
Email Files .eml
Document .doc, .docx, .xls, .xlsx, .ppt, .pptx, .pdf, .wps, .wpt, .rtf, .et, .docm, .xlsm, .pptm, .ett, .dpt, .dps, .ods, .odp, .odg, .odt
Accounting Files (Tally data files) tcp, 900, tsf, 001, 247, 500, 989, tsm.

This article will help you to add custom file extensions/ file types other than the default supported file types in the Seqrite Endpoint Security Cloud from the policies.

Applicable versions: EPS cloud and above.

To add a custom file type for backup, follow the steps:

1. Log on to the "Seqrite Endpoint Security Cloud".
2. Go to the “Policies” option.

    3. Select the “Policy” to which you want to add custom file extensions/file types.

    4. Click on “Miscellaneous”.

    5. Click on “+” sign of the “Data Backup” option.

    6. To add a custom file type /file extension, enter the file extension name and set its maximum file size.
    Note: Maximum file size can be set up to 999999 MB.
    For E.g. If wish to back up AutoCAD data which has file type .dwg then add file type in the Seqrite Endpoint Security Cloud from the policy.

    7. Click “Add”.
    E.g: AutoCAD data will be backed up on the endpoints once the settings are saved in the policy.

    8. To save the settings, click “Save Policy”.


    1. Backup feature will back up the “Default file type” and “Updated file type” data on the physical local drives on the endpoints.

    2. Make sure the local drives of the endpoint have enough free space to back up the important files.

    3. The default file types have a maximum file size limit of 25 MB.

    To exclude any file extension from Seqrite Backup, follow these steps:

    1. If a backup of any file type is not needed, then exclude the file type from the Seqrite Endpoint Security Cloud policy settings and click on “Add”.

    To save the setting click “Save Policy”.

    In this way, other/custom file types can be added in the Seqrite Endpoint Security Cloud from the policy.
