Malwarebytes Secure Backup – Protect and backup your data

mwbrKeeping your data safe is probably the one of the most important things a computer can do. Without your data, there really isn’t a reason to have or use a computer.  Its for this reason that having a backup strategy is important.  If I were you, I’d give serious consideration to Malwarebytes Secure Backup.  It’s a backup program for Windows.

With Malwarebytes Secure Backup, your files are backed up automatically to a secure server, according to a schedule that you set. Every version of a backed up file is archived. Every backed up file that is deleted from Malwarebytes Secure Backup is archived. Every file can always be retrieved, so you never have to worry about something being lost forever. With Malwarebytes Secure Backup, your data is always, ALWAYS safe.

The app even backs up infected files; but thankfully, the app automatically scans your files with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware engine and cleans them.  Don’t worry about your data. Malwarebytes Secure Backup keeps it safe and clean.

Many backup services backup your most current dataset and that’s about it. As items change, so does your backup set. That’s not the case with Malwarebytes Secure Backup.  It backs up and archives every version of every file on your PC.  You’re not limited by the number of devices it backup, either.  It will backup most any device on your PC or network with just one license.

If you’re looking for a backup service or thinking of making a change, then you really need to give Malwarebytes Secure Backup a serious look. Its worth the cost and the time it takes to backup the data.

Amazon Cloud Drive

amazon_cloud_drive_1223946_g1Access your data from anywhere with one of the most trusted names on the internet today with this must have cross platform tool.

Storing your data in the cloud is really in right now. Accessing your documents from anywhere, on any computing device, is the future of modern computing. Its for this reason alone that I really like Amazon Cloud Drive.  With it, you can do just that – get your data where you need it, when you need it from any supported, connected device, with just about any operating system.  This multiplatform, universal tool should be on your list of must have apps.

Amazon Web Services is one of the most trusted names in cloud storage. It powers Amazon Prime’s video on demand service and Amazon’s Cloud Player, and now can power your universal storage needs, too.  Cloud Drive securely stores your photos, videos, documents and other digital files. Though its Cloud Player and Cloud Drive are now thankfully separate services, you can still upload music to Cloud Drive for storage and backup.  However, if you want to play it from anywhere, you will also need to import it into Cloud Player.

To get started, all you have to do is install Cloud Drive on your computer.  Then move files to your Cloud Drive folder. The app will copy the data to your Amazon Web Service powered Cloud Drive.  From there, you can access your files via a web browser, or on any other computer you install Cloud Drive on.  The app will sync files to and from every instance of a compatible device where you have the software installed and your account connected to it. If you make changes to your files, Cloud Drive copies the files up to your account and then down to every device the software is installed on.

Like Dropbox, Google Drive or other service Amazon Cloud drive makes your files accessible from just about anywhere on just about any device with either the software installed or through a web browser. With 5GB of free storage to start you off, and reasonable prices for additional storage, it’s easy to get started with one of the most trusted vendors on the internet today.

Google Kills off Google Apps Standard

Current users and domains won’t be effected, but the free version of Google Apps is gone.

Back in 2008 when Google introduced Google Apps, their online Office Suite, it came in two different versions.  Small businesses and those Gmail users that wanted to implement a custom mail domain (50 users or less) without having to set up a dedicated mail server or incurring any additional expense could use Google Apps Standard.  Larger groups (51 or more users) were required to pay a subscription fee and use Google Apps for Business.  Today, Google Apps Standard was discontinued.

Current users of Google Apps Standard won’t have to subscribe.  Google Apps Standard is still free for educational customers. New users will need to subscribe to Google Apps Premium.

I am a current Google Apps Standard user for my personal site, iTechGear.org. I rarely use any of the office suite apps. I use it mainly for Gmail and a customized email address (xxxxx@itechgear.org).  Users that want to use Google Apps for that, who are not educational customers, must now pay for Google Apps for Business.

Pricing for Google Apps for business can be seen here.  Basically, its $5 per user per month or $50 per user a year.  That includes 25GB of Gmail storage and 5GB of Google Drive Storage.  You can also use a customized email address if you wish.

For casual users like me, this would be a bit pricey. I wouldn’t choose this option if I had to do this now.  For small businesses and one to two man operations, this isn’t a good option, in my opinion. Thankfully, I’m grandfathered in…for now. This is likely not the end of this type of move by Google, either. There are a number of Google Standard users out there, and I think it’s only a matter of time before they get move to the Google Apps for Business realm and will be required to pay a subscription or lose their use of the service.

Time will tell, however; and until then, I’m glad I got in early.

Format any USB stick with the desired file system using HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool

Where would we be without our USB flash drives? Our music, pictures, work files, personal data, and just about our entire life’s history are often stored on the modern day equivalent of the floppy disk.

We love their portability, file space, and universal compatibility, and so too does Hewlett-Packard’s USB Disk Storage Format Tool.

What is it and what does it do?

The HP USB Storage Format Tool is a little godsend for those who use USB flash drives as recovery devices because it is capable of formatting virtually any USB flash drive in a diverse range of systems. And here’s the best bit. Not only does it install and run very smoothly, the interface looks exactly like the standard format which is built into Windows. The key difference being where the Windows version does not have the option of selecting USB drives to format, the HP USB Storage Format Tool does. Big difference huh?

This funky piece of software also offers users the option of creating a DOS start-up disk, by either using the internal MS-DOS system files, or the ones located at a specific path.

Oh! and before we forget, this format tool also allows you to rename all your USB flash drives in any way you want and offers a NTFS volume label for format which enable you to create a FAT32 volume which is bigger than 32GB. Cool hey?

The HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool blows us away because by deleting space used on flash drivers that cannot be removed in the traditional way, and creating bootable USB drives it brings enhanced power and functionality to your system without costing you the earth. If you use flash drives, then don’t delay and get it today.

Keep your hard disk in tip-top shape with O&O Defrag

Keeping your spinning media running at peak performance isn’t always as easy as it might sound. Yes, Microsoft has included Defrag in Windows since Windows 95; but the application is basic, and does only the bare minimum in keeping your hard drive running well. This is why I like O&O Defrag. It’s one of the best Windows hard drive defrag utilities on the market today.

O&O Defrag helps you maximum the performance on your PC. If you work on your computer a lot, then after a while, you’re going to notice slow system and program starts, endless rendering and memory processes, or even system crashes. The first thing most people will recommend you do is to try optimizing or defragging your hard drive.

The benefits are well documented. Defragmenting your PC can accelerate the speed your runs and responds to disk activity requests. In the latest version of O&O Defrag, you can now see what the program does for your system thanks to its graphics and statistics displays. They give you a before-and-after Defrag contrast on your hard drives usage as well as file fragmentation status.

Aside from the basic PC performance features you get, O&O Defrag offers some really nice advanced features. The application adapts itself to your PC usage patterns and system loads with Activity Guard. It’s only going to run when you need it to, based on historic use; and won’t get in the way of your computing activities. Best of all, it works on both conventional, spinning media hard drives as well new SSD, without damaging these new solid state storage devices.

Manage your disk space with style; free up disk space by quickly finding and deleting large, useless files

These days, hard drives offer more storage space for lower prices than ever before. However, I’ve found on my own that no matter how large is your hard drive, sooner or later you’ll fill it up with something. I’m quite sure that you know what I’m talking about and you have seen already the annoying low disk space warning (and the consequences) on your own. At that point, you might want to analyze your hard drive and find the files and folders that are taking the most space, but in case you have hundreds of folders with thousands of files – you’re in trouble.

Considering it’s impossible to use Windows to determine which folders use the most space (or at list, not the easy way), I’d like to recommend you to use Disk Space Fan. This gorgeous application can display the amount of space taken by each folder and the files contained within.

You can find out more by reading the full review of Disk Space Fan or downloading Disk Space Fan.
