Hard Disk Drive Backup
Hard disk drive backups and the very matter of data retention is becoming more and more important with each day. Creating a complete HDD backup is the easiest way to ensure that all valuable documents, databases, images and applications that you work with can be easily retrieved if something happens to the drive.
We welcome you to download and try our software - professional backup solution for Windows 8, 7, Vista, XP and Windows Server 2012, 2008, 2003.
Version 7.3.5, built on April 16, 2013
The software lets you back up individual HDD documents and folders, and quickly restore them if there’s some error. This method is quick (especially, if you enable incremental backup), but can’t be used to back up system data.
With our program, you can create complete image-based snapshots of the entire hard disk, or any individual partition. HDD backups of this type are created on sector level and contain all system data, boot records, etc.
Back up HDDs of Remote Computers
If you have multiple computers that you want to back up, then you need the Network Server edition of our software, which is a client-server solution for backing up remote PCs over network.
To create complete image-based backups of your hard disk drive, you need the Home Professional edition, or higher. If you only want to back up files, please check out Home Standard edition.
Why You Need to Back up HDD
If you’re like most people, then your computer must be connected to the Internet. This means that at any time it may become infected with a malware that can damage data stored on your hard drive. There are two main technologies used for HDD backup: files-based copying and image-based (also called sector-based, drive-based, or snapshot) copying. Our software supports both, and guarantees that in case of a data loss event, you will be able to restore your data quickly and error free.
Comparing Files-Based and Image-Based Backup
Here’s a brief comparison of two approaches to hard disk backup:
It lets you create backup tasks consisting of separate files and folders and enables performing differential backup and other optimization schemes (where each execution of the task backs up only those data that appeared or changed since the previous one). The disadvantage of files-based approach is that there are system files and data that are locked by OS or not accessible on this level, and therefore can’t be backed up.
This technology allows creating backups of operating system, drive boot records and other data. Through disk imaging you can back up the entire hard drive, or even clone it. However, it requires a lot of disk space and works relatively slowly.
