Backup tool is what you'll want to install on your computer as soon as you realize
that you can't afford to lose some of your files.
Backup Tool: you need one
There is a number of approaches how to protect computer files from different accidents:
an antiviral tool, a mirror drive, etc. They are surely good, however, such approaches
serve to protect ALL files in the system, so that your valuable data is considered as just
one of thousands. Nothing can replace a Backup Tool that takes care of the files you
point it to explicitly. With a Backup Tool you can have more copies of your valuable
files, in more places, more often. As a result, you have more safety for your files.
Backup Tool: choose the right one
When choosing which Backup Tool will fit best for you, please consider the
following aspects that are often overlooked:
- Stability. If a Backup Tool fails to work flawlessly, you'll hardly
trust your files to it.
- Backup Format. A good Backup Tool will store your files in a format
that allows you to access the stored files with other common applications.
- Incremental/Differential backups.
If you have a lot of files to backup, you'll need this feature to reduce the backup time
- Support for different types of output devices. You'll probably want
your backups to be placed to different locations: another hard disk, CD/DVD, network drive, etc.
(the more - the safer), or even sent online to an FTP
server , or by e-mail (put farther to take closer).
- Security. A good Backup Tool will offer you an option to encrypt
your backups, so that others won't be able to see your private files.
- Technical Support responsiveness. While setting up a new Backup Tool you may need some assistance. It's great when you can easily reach the software
supplier and get some help.
Another matter to consider is the cost-effectiveness of a Backup Tool. Looking at a
multi-thousand-dollar backup package from a large software company, just ask yourself,
will you pay that much for those extremely clever features which you won't ever try?
