BackupAssist performs automatic, scheduled backups of Windows servers to a variety of backup devices, such as tape, hard drive, REV drive CD/DVD, NAS and file. In the event of a server crash or other disaster, files and system state can be restored from the backup media. BackupAssist will allow you to run custom scripts before and after backups. This enables you to take advantage of the BackupAssist scheduler to perform backup related tasks - such as exporting data from accounting packages to disk (in preparation for the backup). We've incorporated super-fast scheduling, intuitive user interfaces, daily email reminders and report notifications to make the whole process simple for the average user. BackupAssist continues to leverage and improve on proven backup standards.
