Backup Software That Protects Your Data

Road to Recovery-how it began

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.

    I have the HD 7 2nd Gen.. It just shows the Kindle fire orange sign and a little bar at the bottom filling up but the bar stops and doesn't move after a while. I cant see the Kindle fire on the computer or get it into a recovery mode.

    This is my first kindle fire>>>t.co/Qs160TYi8T   and love it so much more than my iPad!! It has a great screen for watching movies, downloads movies fast, has quick internet speeds, and easily switches through apps.

    i tried again this morning. i deleted and uninstalled everything last night. then rebooted this morning. As soon as i send the packet it says connecting…
    then "going back to a older sideload method…"
    then "a couple lines of gobbledigook and a line that says "std::bad_alloc"
    i think it's toast.

    Can't seem to get it to work on my 2nd generation kindle Fire. before i found your video i did a factory reset on the kindle. i downloaded the files you posted onto my windows 7 machine at work, did the adb setup, ran adb.exe. I found the root menu. applied the "update from adb" plugged it in and it said it wanted me to send the package. I did the command prompt typed in the adb sideload and dragged the filename over (i noticed that it didn't provide the Quotation marks like i saw in your video so I did one without the quotation marks and then tried again with them in). There were 3 different software update files, i tried all 3 with and without quotation marks but they all said they were connecting but then the command prompt said "falling back to an older sideload method" then it said "terminate called after throwing an instance of std bad alloc" …etc. so the kindle never found the packet and timed out and the "Installation was aborted" each time. not sure what i'm doing wrong. If i need to find the original OS with the bootup drive. One other thing of note is computer keeps recognizing that something is being plugged in but it can't find the driver to install and then it fails to connect. i think the thing is bricked for real. any thoughts?
