Account seeding for large initial backups

If your initial backup data is very large and would likely take far too long to backup initially using the backup software, you can create a backup seed offline. This seed can then either be uploaded via FTP to the backup server, or can be created on removable hard drive, such as USB disk drive and mailed to us in the post. The seed is an encrypted/compressed file of your whole backup, which once uploaded to the account acts as the starting point for all subsequent backup differentials. When the backup software next runs, it will upload data to the seeded account, adding only your new data, which is very quick.
