Data loss and document corruption happen all the time—but we all hope it won’t happen to us. Nevertheless, these are regular occurrences for all organizations due to the strong possibility of human errors, negligence, or system failure. Most companies have a disaster recovery plan. This usually includes specific procedures for recovering IT infrastructure when faced with natural disasters, terrorism, hacking, and malware attacks. But in the case of project and portfolio management in Microsoft Project for the Web, PMO directors and PPM administrators can face accidental deletion of some files and fields, not the whole system. In this instance, organizations need Microsoft Project for the Web backup and restore solution to recover specific lost or damaged data.


FluentPro Backup is a comprehensive, simple-to-use toolset that automatically helps companies protect Microsoft Project for the Web.

FluentPro Backup allows Project for the Web users to set up automated backup and restore procedures, select what and when to back up, and then restore when and how they need.

The solution allows you to perform Microsoft Project for the Web backup of:

  • projects;
  • related tasks;
  • resources; and
  • groups.

Backups can be run continuously, and project versions can be saved when changes are made.
