Touro Cloud Backup


Touro Cloud Backup is a software program developed by HGST. It adds registry entry for the current user which will allow the program to automatically start each time it is rebooted. 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 touro cloud backup.exe. The setup package generally installs about 11 files and is usually about 19.07 MB (19,993,994 bytes).
