7) Question of the Month about Software Training:

Each month Jeff Love will answer a current or important question that we have received about computer and software training.


June 2008 Question of the Month: 

Can you recommend some good free backup software applications and backup online services?


Answer:

Yes, there are many excellent backup applications that will cost you nothing. Here are some of the ones I suggest trying:

SyncBack Freeware (page down to middle of page) - I have used this backup app extensively in the past and it always does a good job.

DFIncBackup - a personal backup program that lets you create incremental backups that are compressed and stored in zip files.

AceBackup - allows you to create encrypted backups of your data, that can be stored on any local storage device, as well as on CD, DVD or on your remote FTP server.

Abakt - an easy to use and flexible backup tool that can create normal or compressed backups in ZIP format, supports multiple backup profiles and filtering.

Back4Win - an easy to use backup tool that uses zip compression to store all selected files and directories in a single archive.

XXCLONE Freeware - enables you to create a clone of your hard drive on another disk and use it for backup or emergency recovery.

EZBack-it-up - copies your data to a destination of your choice where you can readily access your backed up files in the same directory structure.

The best free online backup site is adrive.com, where you can store and backup 50GB of data for no cost at all. Tow other free storage sites are datarebound.com and xdrive.com, both offering 5GB of free storage.


I hope this helps you.
