O&O GmbH brings a useful tool for backing up your precious data on an external backup device (USB stick, external USB hard disk, FireWire volume).
Featuring a single window interface, O&O Autobackup is easy to use. Just connect your desired backup device to your PC, choose the targeted folder for backup and the destination device. There are three actions that can be performed: copy the entire content of the folder, copy only the modified and the new files, or full synchronization including deletion.
In case, the default actions cannot fulfill your needs, you can choose to edit your own criteria, based on which, new actions will be performed. The copy process will start automatically whenever you connect your USB/Firewire disk to the computer. Using the status bar icon and the status window in the program, you can see when the process is complete and simply remove the external drive at the end.
With O&O AutoBackup you can backup your files and directories quickly and automatically. But if you want to backup your entire computer, then is recommended to use a proper application, a comprehensive backup & recovery solution such as O&O DiskImage.
Until February, O&O Autobackup will be offered for free. All you need is to download it and request a free license code, which will be send to you by email.
