Backups and archives are a key piece of retaining our digital lifestyle; both professional and personal data chains and items. We keep all of our documents, photos, and records in binary format, instead of pen and paper. One bad electrical overload, physical shock, read/write error, electromagnetic exposure, and you can lose everything. These are real-world risks and can strike without warning. One needs to take steps to mitigate these dangers and ASCOMP Software’s Backup Maker 7.4.
The newest changes to this program include a System Tray notification of the Backup status. This keeps you aware of the status of your backups, the last one completed, successful/unsuccessful, and the date code. You can then start and new backup with a few clicks. This pairs well with the enlarged Main Window for easier readbility.
Also, you can now terminate/end/cancel a backup, if the backup has started before you are ready. This is helpful, as having to resort to using the System Task Manager to force stop the program. This can cause system and software instability, and make backups corrupted. This is not a safe variable to occur.
This software can be purchased in several tiers. The levels are Private (One User, on up to 2 computers), Company (2-5 Users, on 5 computers, and Update (incremental updates, after the initial two years of updates have elapsed, for an additional 2 years). The prices are in order $25.00 USD, $50.00 USD, and $15.00 USD, respectfully. Great prices for a lightweight and extensive backup program. Vhexk them out, and tell them I sent you. Until next time, keep on techin’ . . .
