Which Backup Program is the Best? Answer May Surprise You!

Just as it surprised me! I want to share this revelation with you!

Previously, I have been using CrashPlan to for backing up my local data to the second hard drive, but they recently changed their business model and will soon forbid free users from backing up locally. Shame, it worked flawlessly. Especially the version retention setting. It automatically reduced the size of the backup archive.

So I started looking for a replacement… and I made a list of backup software to choose from.

Here is the list:

Genie Backup Home
Paragon Backup & Recovery 16 Free
Handy Backup
EaseUS Todo Backup Free
AOMEI Backupper
Iperius
COMODO Backup
Ashampoo Backup Pro 10
FBackup
Personal Backup
Veeam

Can you guess which one of these is my number one?

Alright.

 

And the…

winner

…is…

…none of them!

 

And no, I haven’t bought CrashPlan either.

 

So how do I backup my data then?

Do I monkey around with .bat files?

No.

 

Have I turned on RAID?

No.

 

Have I developed my own backup software?

No.

 

Have I stopped backing up altogether?!

No. (Are you mad?)

 

Do I have a butler called Alfred who backs up the data for me?

Perhaps.

 

Ok, thanks for reading. Have a nice day.

Oh, almost forgot… I use Beyond Compare 4 for backing up.
