Easy. Upon downloading the SpiderOak application, you may select what items you would like to back up by clicking on a checkbox. It is that easy. And because our software constantly monitors any changes or additions to your selected folders, subsequent back ups occur automatically.

In order to ease the selection process, you can select to back up high-level categories of items such as Documents, Pictures, E-mail, or Music as well as specific folders in any of these categories.
