A lot of people -- and I mean a whole lot of people -- don't ever back up their hard drive. One of the main reasons for this procrastination is the belief that backing up is a highly technical process that requires a great degree of computer knowledge, without which everything on your drive can be irreversibly screwed up. Funny, considering that if you don't back up, that's exactly what will eventually happen.

Many people are so frightened at the very notion of backing up that they never even do it!

EzBackup is perhaps the most self-descriptive piece of software ever. It takes one of the most intimidating tasks in PC history, and makes it... EASY!

For starters, you can use EzBackup with any hard drive whatsoever. Internal IDE, SATA, and eSATA drives, external USB or Firewire drives... you get the idea. Hardware-wise, there's nothing for you to think about -- just pick any drive that's the same size or bigger than the one you're backing up, and you're good to go!

EZ Backup offers three discrete backup methods depending on your specific needs:

  • Image Backup This option literally creates an exact image of the chosen source drive without setting the incremental volume for modified data (more on this later).
  • Image and Modified Data Update (Mirroring): This option first creates an image backup of your chosen source drive. Backups can be run automatically, as a schedule, or manually, and all data written to your source drive will be mirrored (written) to your backup drive. Additionally, any file deleted from your source drive will also be deleted from the backup drive, keeping the drives exactly alike.
  • Image and Incremental Data: First, EZBackup creates an image of the selected source drive. From this point on, all modified data will be stored in an incremental volume. This allows EzBackup to build a library of all data modified at specific points. The upside for you? It means that you can restore data from a specific date and time!

EzBackup image backups are perfect drive-to-drive backups, meaning everything on your original drive (files, applications, boot information, operating system, application preferences, and partition information) is transferred to the backup drive.

God forbid you ever experience a complete, catastrophic hard drive failure -- all you need to do is hook up the backup drive, open EzBackup, and click a single button to restore everything! In addition, if you happen to toast just a single directory or file, you can selectively retrieve those lost files from the backup drive in no time flat.

After you've performed a full backup, EzBackup helps to keep you current with your backups by letting you schedule an unlimited amount of automated backups whenever you want. For each automated backup, you can choose to backup individual files, folders, or file types, or just those files that have been created or modified since the last backup.

Of course, you can always run manual backups with EzBackup, or link the backup process to start with the push of a button on your backup drive. Backup files can be configured to overwrite existing backups, or you can maintain multiple dated versions for even greater peace of mind. With EzBackup, backing up your hard drive is such a simple task, you hardly have to think about it!

A. Goyal Installed fine on win 7 64 bit. Was able to backup complete partitions to USB drive. S/W looks good.

Howard Margolis Hi -- I'm glad it worked well on your Win7-64-bit machine. It crashed my HP-G60-530US notebook (also Win7, 64-bit). Luckily, in 2/2010 I had backed everything up and had made an image (on Acronis Home 2010) of my hard drive. Your success does not negate the difficulties I had. My suggestion: Fix your installation program(s). Good luck. -- HM

A. Goyal Tried to backup D partition (400GB size) with only 4GB of data and it took a very long time as if it was backing the entire 396GB of empty space. I had to kill the process in task manager as cancel button did not stop the backup and continued backing...Ideally backup would be done after hours but it would be nice to be able to stop the process at will.
