Overview

NovaBACKUP is a software program developed by NovaStor. The most common release is 12.5.9, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The primary executable is named novabackx.exe. The setup package generally installs about 106 files and is usually about 142.91 MB (149,848,006 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 8. While about 63% of users of NovaBACKUP come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany and United Kingdom.
