Backup Software / Features / Windows Backup Tool
Native Windows backup tool is a strong, capable instrument of safekeeping for almost all sorts of data. From version to version, Windows backup service becomes more and more advanced.

It is a reasonable consideration that the program must be reliable (including a strong encryption of data) and demonstrate a not-too-heavy price tag. Here is a list of these functions allowing keeping data with comfort and safety:
