Make backups of your important data and store them on a different partition or online, keep the backups up-to-date by synchronizing the files and folders in them and retrieve backed up data in case something went wrong.

This is an application that allows you to backup and recover data from your computer. It has an attractive and uncluttered interface, which offers quick access to any function.
When you first open the program, it advises you to create a bootable media in case your operating system fails to start. The main window displays the most important features of this tool: “Create backup plan”, “Backup now” and “Recover”. When accessing the backup plan function, the program guides you through the whole operation. You need to select the disk that you want to backup, the location, the backup method, and the plan parameters. In addition, you have the option to save your personal data on your computer or online. This way in case of any system failure you still will be able to recover your data.

The recovery function is also easy to use. All you need to do is to select the previously saved data, the time interval for recovery and the task to perform. The application comes with additional functions that allow the user to customize the recovery process. You can set the tool to validate the backups before recovery or to check file systems after the recovery. The interface provides shortcuts to open various functions such as backup plans and tasks, vaults, disk management, mounted images, alerts and logs.

In conclusion, you'll find this program useful if you want to backup your data to a safe environment or to create and mount images of your operating system. However, the online activation process may cause some difficulties for novice users.
