There is no question of not taking backup of important data, everybody does it. It depends upon the person how frequently they backup their data. I am not in the habit of frequent data backup but important professional data. I am, also, not used to take backup using backup software. In fact, I copy my files to external hard drives and that is my backup. This is because I feel it easy to access backed-up data if copied. If I need to save space, I simply use 7-ZIP to compress that data.
Most probably, using a backup software will always force you to use that particular software to retrieve data. This means you and your money is bound to that software vendor. Why should they allow you to retrieve backed-up data by third vendor software? You use other software and this will simply kill their market share. Well, you can find many freeware backup software, too.
Last time, when I share NovaBACKUP PROMO was in October, 2009. After a long time, we have it again. This time promo is for NovaBACKUP Professional 12.5 which is just the previous version. The current version is 13. So, it is not very old.
NovaBACKUP Professional lets you take full system backup as well as a single folder backup. It can automatically back up your files, photos, music, and e-mail to a local drive and device and recover your critical files from those location. With smart file backup, open file backup, and complete hard drive imaging, NovaBACKUP protects your data in ways that other software cannot, and restores your system after any data disaster. Step-by-step wizards help you create, manage, and automate backup processes fast. A flexible scheduler lets you customize your backup routines to suit your work environment and schedule automatic backups down to the minute.
One great feature of NovaBACKUP is Bare-Metal-Restore. “Bare-metal restore is a technique in the field of data recovery and restoration where the backed up data is available in a form which allows one to restore a computer system from “bare metal”, i.e. without any requirements as to previously installed software or operating system.”, says Wikipedia.
