Review: Back4Sure makes backing up a dream, thanks to its great features

Back up your files, documents, images, and anything else valuable without dragging and dropping -- with this easy-to-use utility.

Back4Sure makes it easier to back up your files in one fell swoop. You'll be able to copy all of the files you want to another drive with just a few clicks. Since it supports external drives, compression, and so many more advanced features, you'll probably never go back to the standard way of backing things up.

This program lets you instantly copy any files to another section on your computer or another drive. Instead of having to highlight and drag your files to the new drive, you just click the checkboxes you want to get started. You can choose whole directories or go down to individual file folders for backup. Back4Sure's menu is very clean, but it won't impress anyone from a style perspective. In addition to backing up your files, the program can compress them, clean up duplicates, and make other changes. The program uses a special utility to back things up. It looks a lot like Windows' utility, but gives you more information as it's working. You will have to click a button to complete the backup instead of just waiting for it to finish like you would with Windows' tool, though.

Though the program could have a more modern layout, that might ruin just how easy it is to get it up and running. Back4Sure makes a routine habit easy and effective. It's recommended for any user who needs to back up and manage their files.
