I will not say a single word about data backup and about the characteristics of Ocster Backup Pro 5. The reason is you know the importance of data backup. And almost all data backup software more less has same characteristics. The countable things are the speed, qality and security of your data and system usage. In this case, you can trust Ocster Backup Pro 5.
Why there are so many promos from Ocster Backup? Because, they are going to launch new release v6 in first week of November, 2010. You can say that they are letting you test the version 5 free of cost. If you are satisfied, you would probably buy version 6. Well, it’s up to you.
I have used it once on Windows 7 Professional x64 just to know if it works on x64 and it did. I think, it is pretty simple and full of Backup instructions when you wanna take backup. Well, there are no personal words becuase, I have not used it for my real data backup purpose. If you would like you can share your thoughts.
Almost all data backup software miss one feature: AntiVirus security of backed up data. Windows and all other OSs have their own backup facility, then why should we buy such costly software if there is no Virus protection for backedup data. Here are features of Ocster Backup Pro 5:
>Fully Automatic: Creates fully automatic backups of your data
>Outlook Support: Back up your Microsoft Outlook emails and calendars with a single mouse click.
>Automatic Pause: Backups are done in the background and are automatically paused to prevent them from slowing down other programs. Various system characteristics are monitored, e.g. CPU usage, I/O usage, fullscreen applications, etc.
>Stop & Resume: Backups can be stopped and resumed at any point. This is handy when the computer needs to be shut down, for example.
