Simplified backup

Expect good things from this simple file backup program.

Don't be fooled by this simple backup program's simple appearance. It successfully backed up our files and folders and managed to throw in a few extras.

DFIncBackup Home has a very intuitive and straightforward user interface. The helpful wizard will especially appeal to users who are new to backup programs. Experienced users will appreciate the scheduling and password-protection features. The Edit menu was a little cluttered, but we were able to edit all of the backup configurations we had set while using the wizard with little effort. The Configurations menu let us check for free disk space on a CD/DVD to create a disk image. The program quickly backed up our selected files to a USB, and in a separate test, to a folder on our hard drive. We were able to successfully run random backups using the interface's command buttons. The Log feature gave us a detailed report of our scheduled backups, wrapping a very easy to use backup program.

The program includes a surprisingly thorough Help menu, but thanks to its easy to navigate interface, you probably won't need it. DFIncBackup Home keeps things simple, but remains flexible enough for users who want more control. After all was said and done, we found this free program just as good as many of the paid ones. We highly recommend it for all user levels.
