Lazesoft Recovery Suite Home will let you back up important files or your entire hard drive, and then restore from the backup whenever you need. With several different functions bundled together, this app provides a versatile solution to your computer backup needs.
Multiple functions: When you open this program, you're presented with a dashboard that offers several options for you to choose from. You can Burn a CD/USB Backup, or you can complete a Windows Recovery, Data Recovery, Disk Image and Clone, or a Password Recovery.
Lots of help: No matter which item you pick, a Wizard will open up in a new window to guide you through the process. And if you need more help than that, you can refer to the Help file, which offers step-by-step instructions complete with screenshots.
Challenges for novice users: Even with all of the available Help, certain aspects of this program can be overwhelming to novice users. The Disk Image and Clone option in particular require you to make a lot of technical decisions, and there is a lot of information presented at once at each step along the way.
Lazesoft Recovery Suite Home is a good option for backing up your computer and recovering data if something goes wrong. Although it tries to make all features accessible to all users, some features still require a bit of technical knowledge to take full advantage of. The program is free, however, so it's definitely worth trying out to see if it's a good match for you.
