About Backup Utilities
Backup utilities allow you to keep copies of your hard drive contents in a safe place, letting you quickly restore lost files in the event of a hard-drive failure or errant software update.
FAQ: Backup Utilities
You might already have a backup of some files. If you are using the cloud-based apps that are part of Google Drive or Microsoft Office Online, for example, then your files are stored remotely, safe from local dangers. Or if you use Google Photos on your Android phone, then you have copies of your images stored in the cloud.
Both Windows and MacOS come with easy-to-use backup tools. For more control, you can find third-party utilities for fine-tuning scheduling, setting which files and folders are backed up, updating just the files that have been added or changed, and creating bootable backups.
Windows Backup and Restore
Part of Windows 10, Windows Backup and Restore lets you make backups of the contents of your hard drive and then restore the contents of the drive.
Time Machine comes with MacOS and creates snapshots, or copies, of the contents of your hard drive over time, allowing you to step back through time to find and retrieve documents, folders, and apps.
Acronis True Image
Acronis True Image lets you make a copy of your hard drive and restore the entire contents or just files or folders. You have control over what gets backed up and how often, and if you have multiple backup drives, what gets backed up to which destination. A cloud option lets you keep local and remote backups.
Carbon Copy Cloner
Carbon Copy Cloner gives you flexible backup and scheduling options and, like Acronis, lets you create a bootable clone of your hard drive, so you can recover quickly from a disk crash.
