Comprehensive file backup

Automate file backups with this easy to use program.

Automating backups for your most important files and folders doesn't have to be difficult or time-consuming thanks to this comprehensive program. We found it once of the best backup programs we've seen.

Automatic Backup Pro uses a step-by-step guide that walks you through the process of backing up your files. As soon as we clicked the Add Profile button, we were asked to select a profile type for backup (files and folders, My Documents, Outlook Express, etc.), select a destination folder, and finally, configure the scheduling. We were able to completely customize our own backup schedule, choosing to back up on a monthly, daily, and even hourly schedule. We were also able to pinpoint a specific time. We opted to backup our My Documents folder to our USB. Once we saved our profile, our backup went on without a hitch. If you don't want to wait for the next scheduled backup, the program includes a Run Now feature that will immediately perform a backup using the selected profile settings.

Help is available through preset FAQs and a Help menu. It also comes with an ample, 30-day trial period. But thanks to this program's easy navigation, users of all skill levels will find it a worthwhile backup program.
