I found it to be very easy to use, it comes with simple and plain interfaces.
|Plain and simple user interface|
The software offers 4 major functions.
For this review, the focus will be on backup which consists of 5 sub-categories.
I.1) System Backup - backup all the system files, boot files, and program files only - usually including system partition and boot partition
- System partition: It is the partition that installs the operating system, applications, and saves your personal files. That is the so-called C Drive. System files require relatively more space. For example, the system files of Windows 7 require at least 8 GB.
- Boot partition: It is the partition that stores boot files, including boot.ini, ntldr, bcd, winload.exe, etc. Boot files require relatively smaller space, generally less than 200MB.
I.2) Disk Backup - backup the entire hard disk to an image file, this is useful to create a backup image of your external hard disk
If you backup the local hard disk, the image can be used for restoration in case of system crashed.
I.3) Partition Backup - backup your partition (within a hard disk) to an image file
I.4) File Backup - backup the files and folders to an image file
I.5) File Sync - backup folders by file synchronization, no image file created - in other words, this will attempt to clone your files and folder from a source (local hard disk) to a destination (external drive)
This review will focus on the File Sync.
