Backup Salesforce Files – What is it, Major Benefits, and How to Improve it


One thing that Salesforce admins find quite challenging is downloading files & attachments from their Salesforce org one-by-one and then uploading them individually to external storage. This process of taking a backup of Salesforce files one at a time is very tedious and time-consuming.

But at the same time, it is important to take the backup regularly to manage a massive volume of files in your limited Salesforce file storage. Otherwise, you need to spend dollars on buying additional storage from Salesforce which is too expensive.

To make it easier, File ZIPO introduced the Backup Files feature which helps admins to transfer multiple Salesforce files to external cloud storage quickly.
