Protect your data with backup software

Hard drives are marked as reliable, but the reality tells a different story. It's only a matter of time until a hard drive crashes and you lose all your important data if you're not prepared. And even if your hard drive does not fail due to physical errors, virus attacks, software or user errors, even theft threats intervale increasing exponentially the probability of losing your data.

So why do you need a backup software? In almost every industry it is well known that the cost of prevention is less than the cost of repairing / fixing what went wrong. Even so billions of dollars are lost every year because of data loss. This is why you need backup software, and you need to have your data protected. This way if the inevitable hits, you can easily restore data from your most recent backup.

There are many backup programs out there, so choosing one might be a difficult task. In any case, when you choose a backup application you have to be sure that it will make backing up as easy as possible, so that it will not be a time consuming process on your side.

What to look for in a backup software
These are some key features that any good backup software should have, in order to ensure proper protection for your data and usability:

  • Standard Zip Compression. Whenever your data is compressed by a backup program, it's important that the format it keeps the data in is not proprietary, so that you can access the information without that particular program too. Since ZIP is one of the most popular archiving format, this is how the backup should be kept.
  • Incremental backups. If you back-up regularly, it's important not to back-up everything each time. This is where the concept of incremental backup proves useful, as it will back-up only what was changed since the last backup.
  • Backup job scheduler. This would allow you to set a time and date when to run the backup, and the backup would run automatically. It's one of the most useful feature as it would let you schedule backups and have backups run unattended.
  • Data Encryption. It's always good and safe to "back-up the backup", meaning to have your backup protected with a password in case you accidently lose the backup destination.
  • Easy to use. The backup software has to be an easy to use interface, so that you will not lose too much time figuring it out.
  • Support and documentation. Support is important, and very important is how often the developers of the backup program release new versions and how they answer customer support questions.

The above features are some of the most important ones when choosing the a backup software, but in order to be sure you have the best backup software that fits you needs you will have to test it yourself. This is why always make sure a free trial is offered. Backup4all ( http://www.backup4all.com/ ) is a very popular backup software that offers a 30-day free trial, and passes every requirement from those mentioned above.

    ADDICTIONS ? They END!!! You want to know your purpose in life. generational curses keep coming down the line. the hurt passes on from generation to generation until one tries a little to find the truth. Then God sees us, he sought us before we can seek him. He sends the Holy Spirit into our lives to glorify and magnify the name of Jesus. You see, Jesus broke all our generation curses, he paid for our sins, he paid for our wickedness and sins. He paid for our peace and our healing. Yes healing, be it physical or emotional. I found Jesus, and he saved my life from PAIN. He never leaves you! You can find him too, if you don't know where to turn to , Just say the following prayer: Father I come in the name of Jesus, Thank you Lord Jesus for forgiving me of my sins, and I forgive all those who did me wrong. All those I did wrong i seek your forgiveness. I believe that you Jesus, died on the cross for my sins, I believe you are the son of the living God and I confess that you are my Lord and Saviour. I pray that I may know him, the power of his Resurrection and The fellowship of his long Suffering . Lord Jesus please come into my heart, Holy Spirit please come into my heart to glorify the name of Jesus. Use my body, my clay vessel, use my mind, my emotions and let my will be your will so my life will have a purpose. I want the mind of Jesus. I cannot run my life successfully without Jesus. May the Holy Spirit work through me to glorify the name of Jesus. I pray this prayer in the name of Jesus. Amen and Amen. Thank you Lord.

    I know Michael personally as well and was with him regularly early in his recovery and traveled with him throughout the country. Did not know he was sick, what is the update on him. Hope he is well and back to normal.

    I've know Michael since he became sober. I too have been in recovery since the mid eighties after nearly twenty years of heroin addiction. Michael currently needs all of our prayers as he recently became ill and is currently in an induced coma as a result a diabetic condition that he was diagnosed with about a year ago. Although Michael and I didn't talk often in recent years because of the different things going on in our lives, we always maintained a bond from when we did see each other regularly in our early days of recovery. I am praying emphatically that God brings him through this as he is one of the "Chosen Ones" that God watched over during his addiction so he could help others stuck in grip of active addiction, which is one of the most powerful afflictions a person can be subjected to. Love and Respect to a brother who helped me and was instrumental in my early recovery.
