Maybe I am peculiar...but I bought a second hard drive and I clone my primary from time to time. If my primary fails, I have the second hard drive always ready.

This is for kiddies. AISBackup is serious stuff. This one takes
about 200 times as long to backup vs aisbackup. This makes one
huge .reg file for a backup but there's much more to the registry
than this. Very lame, really.

I have not downloaded thiis product. I do not intend to. What can be easier? How about a remote FTP server. Better yet? one that runs and you dont need to worry about or remember to backup. I am working with and using Carbonite. Unlimited space. Upload is slow, but restoring data has saved me a few times already.

I, too, have not heard of this company. There are too many backup programs out there, so what makes this so unique? I dont know.

I've just started getting familiar with this software and quickly found one glaring omission from this version: Incremental & Differential Backups are not allowed when backing up via ftp. So everytime I backup my files, it backs EVERYTHING rather than just the new files or the files that have been modified.

For now, I'll stick with an older GATD backup software: FTP Synchronizer Professional. It's not as pretty, but has more important features if you want to backup to an ftp site.

You can't split AES encrypted files, so the 4 GB filesize limit could be a problem to some users. And can this program backup the operating system? I see no mention of such functionality. Acronis is $50, but it's worth every penny. This program can't hold a candle to it.

I like to use xxclone. It is free and it copies everything including the registry. If your drive crashes, you can boot up to the new drive. No need to reinstall appications.

Those of you worried about corruption should use the RAR format.
WinRAR allows you to set a certain percentage of which it will fill with redundant data. It makes the archive a little bigger, but that increase in size is the data used to recover damages archives in case of bad sectors, scratches on CDs, etc..

By the way, the 4GB limit shouldn't be a concern. Don't try to back up everything you want to back up into one file; Break it up into sections. Also, when you want to back up things like games, don't bother with the game data! Just back up the config (if you can find it) and the savegames (usually easy to find - look in My Documents, as some games put savegames there, and look in the installation directory for obvious signs like directories named "save" or "savedata", or files with the extension ".sav"). Similar applies for applications like Word or Dia - just back-up your documents, not the whole applications. You can easily reinstall those (yes, it takes some time, but look at it this way: If you don't use those pieces of software again, you're saving yourself clutter and restore time). The only thing you need to worry about for those is having the keys, which you can find in the registry (As noted, don't back up your entire registry, only the sections you need - it WILL cause problems if you try to restore the entire registry hive.).

WinRAR also supports breaking up the archive into pieces - no need to trick it like WinZIP needs to be (at least WinZIP used to be that way - last version I used was... 5? 6? ... never showed any improvements). As I suggested above, break things up if you can; it'll save you headaches later (for example, someone mentioned that some file systems only support files up to a certain size; I don't remember the limit for NTFS, but FAT32 has a 4GB limit if I recall correctly. Also, depending on the set-up, EXT2 has a 2GB limit or a bigger one that I've forgotten).
It also supports encryption (Not sure what kind), but IMO, if you want to encrypt things you should use something that's made to encrypt files, such as GPG/PGP or TrueCrypt.
Rare in an archiver, it also supports NTFS' special options like additional data streams, and saving the security permissions of the files (great for Vista and offices).
(Sorry, didn't mean to ramble on about it, but these extra features are often overlooked and since they apply very well to this situation, I thought some people might appreciate it.)

For synchronisation, look for SyncToy or Unison.

Install and register it without any hassle. I got to say that the program work quite well without any shed of problem. Plus the interface is fairly easy and self explanatory to navigate. But I don't really need a backup function but I would love to test the Invisible Secrets 4 since from the look at its feature, it seem capable to outshone the recent Uconomix Encryption Engine.

#64 Rich, the answer to your question is in my first paragraph.

Regarding Acronis, as you mentioned, the backup can be done to an external hard disk. I never use the secure zone since it could break.

Lastly, I'm sure you know you could do an incremental backup. Why would anyone do a complete backup of many gigs every time they back up?

You can have windows outlook or another software do auto task reminders that you set for a certain day to backup everything. I use cd's and I have an 80GB WD book that I backup all of the important files...even today LIke Windows live one care and norton 360 they also offer automatic backup, hell if you have xp pro you can backup anytime you want, any folder you want, etc.

@65, Denise: Just run the setup program, it will connect to a server and get you a key (serial number), copy that key to the clipbord, then click on "Enter registration key" and paste the key in the appropriate field, cvlick ok, and you're halfway through. The final registration takes place when the program is started a second time. In Help, About you can see if it worked. Oh, they do ask some 'demographic' info when activating, so it looks like these keys are actual regular free registrations.

Hope this helps.

Final: Registry backups won't work (this is something they should take care of, or remove the option to make a registry backup). I have tried scheduled backup, on Windows start, and shutdown; and each and every time the logviewer popped up with the message that the registry couldn't be backed up.

At my fellow Acronis users I want to ask this: Do you seriously run a full system image every day? No? Neither do I, once a month is fine, but I have backup as little as 400 GB spread over several partitions, and that simply takes too much time! So a backup of the data to external media is the next best thing to do.

Then someone wanted to backup programs as well, because the data is useless without them... I beg to differ in opinion here; applications can be reinstalled from the media they came on, or they can be downloaded and then reinstalled; and then your data-backup comes in handy.

Still a keeper, but I will remove the registry backup from the job :-)

@57, Ben: You did make images with DriveImageXL, but you never restored??? What kind of disaster planning is that, please? It should be a regularly returng issue to restore the image (the best is to a similar hard disk) to test whether the image is OK... they can become corrupt too, you know; even in the Acronis Secure Zone (which is nothing more or less than a partition with a special media marker!!)

#60: Mukund, a backup program like Titan or any of the others mentioned will not work for you. Each program you have installed on your hard drive made changes to the Windows registry. If you reinstall Windows, those changes are gone and the programs won't work. After reinstalling Windows, you would have to reinstall each program from scratch.

However, a disk imaging program, such as the Acronis that has been mentioned here, could work for you. These programs copy an "image" of your entire hard disk, sector by sector, including Windows and all its settings. But as I noted in my preceding comment (#58), the image includes any viruses and spyware, obsolete files, and all accumulated garbage in your Windows registry that can slow down your computer or make it unstable.

If you decide to use a disk image, I recommend that you first run clean-up utilities (for example, CCleaner, which clears away useless files, and Advanced Windows Care, which streamlines your registry; both are free) before copying the image.

I hope this helps.

Can I back up those applications piecemeal to several CDs and format my drive and re-install those applications after installing the Windows XP Pro?

#45: Sue, 7-Zip is a great utility and has received excellent reviews. However, I still recommend ZipGenius (from www.zipgenius.it or popular download sites) for its greater functionality and wider range of supported formats, including the super-compressed 7-Zip format. See my review in the 10 Sept. 2006 post of my utilities blog, http://jonathanstoolbar.blogspot.com.

#41 and #46: Rich, Fivish, and the many others who warned of ZIP file corruption make a good point. Today's compression utilities are generally very reliable and trustworthy. But if you want the greatest possible safety, back up uncompressed "straight" copies of your files, which might require more external hard disk space or more CDs or DVDs.

#51: Dr. Olaimi, today's giveaway can save backups as ordinary uncompressed files or as compressed ZIP files (with the option of encryption). With these options, you will not need Titan to restore a backup, thus avoiding the problem you attempted to describe.

#54: Robert and everyone else wondering about the encryption: It appears that if you choose AES encryption you will need Titan to restore the compressed backup file. But if you choose Zip encryption (which is less strong), you won't.

#57: Ben, you also make a good point... But remember that if you back up a disk image, you get back all the crap that Windows accumulated over the years. So sometimes it's best to start from a clean slate in case of a catastrophic hard disk failure. Also, disk images can be time- and space-consuming overkill when the actual data you need to preserve is small in relation to the total disk size.

Whew! I'd better get some work done today! I hope this is helpful. And thanks once again, GOTD.

For many years I have used only one backup, and that is Acronis True Image backup. As the name implies, it creates an image of your hard disk, so that if your installation gets messed up, you can restore it easily. This software also allows one to back up files and folders. This software has saved my life many, many times. It is commercial, proprietary and costs $32 as downloadable software from newegg.com.

There are other image backup programs around, like DriveImage XML from Runtime Software. This free package also allows one to back up folders and files, which I have tried. I have never tried to do a restore using their image though.

A backup solution that does not back up to an image just does not cut it, to me.

I never do backups and so my heart skipped a beat recently when one "Giveawayoftheday" programme "cleaned" some important Windows XP System files and all I got at the startup was the blue screen. So, my eyes lit up when I saw this programme and now I have tested it. The programme successfully backup up the files I asked it too on to a storage harddisk. Well done. The scheduler worked and I'm know going to try and back up the e-mails.

C'mon. #4, really different is right. You didn't go far enough.

what is needed for a backup program is one that incrementally backs up the changes to the system- that *aren't* part of the original installation. Reinstall the base OS, slap the backup on it... How hard can it be to chase down new entries and grab install directories and new dll's? Index 'em by last-installed-program. By this time there should be 'snapshot lists' of various base OS installs, and ditto for the tilework of support structures like java, the .NETs, DirectX9....

FEBE does an exhaustive job of exporting Firefox settings, and I think DriverMax 2.5 looks pretty good for making packs of drivers. Which is real handy for having mobo, video, and other tricky stuff work fast after a crunch.

gotta try some of the settings save plugins, it's a step in the right quadrant.

The tricky part is mentioned in reference to backing up the registry (pun intended, key to the whole enchilada):

"You can include your Windows registry in the backup. Important notice: this feature should be used with caution, as restoring the Registry can be very dangerous for a novice user and can crash the system."

Ooookay.

and I should note that as soon as one applies encryption, 'compatible zip format' kind of goes away, IMHO. Or is that cross-program too?

Uh, back up a plain-zip backup of the backup program first off?

I will be looking this one over better than the last, it seems to have most of the backup modes I want, that are available...

looks like a decent program but i think i will pass on this one. i just use ultimate boot disk for windows with the drive image xml plugin and boot from that cd and do a complete backup when i feel the need to backup my pc it's free and works great and best of all you don't get the files in use errors because it starts before windows does so that makes it easier to do a backup and restore when needed then i just burn the backup on to a cds or dvd it will split large backups so they can be burned to multiple cds or dvds. i backup the entire drive with it and it restores it perfectly never a problem.

Lesson learnd!

A bit more than 25 years of experience in disaster recovery, my lesson was learned!

You need not only to replicated your "DATA", but your applications as well (DATA are useless without them!). Ironically, the primary Backup software is as equally exceptional of this rule as your Operating System! Why? because you need to install your Operating system (the same and exact version) and then install your backup and RESTORE software. Thus, having them original with a real "re-usable" serial number and activation code is a MUST if want to be serious enough about "Recovering" after a total HW failure!

Thus other than physically present original packages of both your operating system and your backup software is a total waste of time and money and probably your "Job"!

As for this software, it possesses what it take to be an excellent software, BUT it is still a giveaway and according to GAOTD policies the serial number/activation code is good for one time only, that is during the installation bonanza day! Although it was fun to read and try the features, but I will pass "big time" for my critical DATA sakes!

So, it is good to install and uninstall for testing purposes, and it is SERIOUSLY dangerous to depend on it just like that!

Cheers.

The 4GB limitation is because of the zip format. But anyway, if you want to make huge backups ( 100GB or so), you don't want to use zip as that will consume your entire CPU, and I don't like having a big archive but rather multiple smaller files ( for redundancy ) - if one big zip gets corrupted I loose everything, if one file out of 100,000 gets corrupted, well, I might live with that. So I think that 4 GB limitation isn't really an issue. I like this program because it allows me to create fast small backups. I backup around 2 GB of information, I can do it fast and incrementaly. With Acronis I had to backup the entire partition, taking much longer and saving data I don't really need. If my Windows gets messed up, I can restore from by recovery disks that came with the laptop from HP, and then proceed with a fresh install, recovering only the 2 GB that I REALLY neeed, not all the crap I get into Program Files after 2 years of Windows usages, and all the spyware and viruses that could already be in the Windows folder. The user interface is very easy, I really like this program and I will defenetly keep it. Thanks GAoTD.

Additional: After the backup the program reported that the registry couldn't be backed up (W2KPro SP4), which would render that option useless... more testing needed, I guess... so I set the same task now in the scheduler, and at Windows startup, let's see how well it then performs...

I reviewed free synchronization utilities on 1 July and 8 July 2007 (http://jonathanstoolbar.blogspot.com), and recommended AllWay Sync and its kissing cousin, Goodsync. SyncToy fell far short.

@1: Please go outside and play with your friends...

@2: Please read what it says about the backup format!

22: Do you mean to tell me that you - at least once a month - go through the DRIVE/PARTITION backup process on your system with Acronis TrueImage? I sure hope you tested restoring with incremental backups from it, since that used to be a problem.

@all: That is where this nice little proggie comes in handy. Of course you wouldn't be so foolish to backup to thew same drive, or a partition on the same physical drive... would you? Now, I have two small (40 GB) external hard disks especially for this purpose; which are stored outside my house (one week one, the other week the other), once a month I create a full system backup with Acronis TrueImage which I also have... Whether you write/receive many emails you wouldn't want to loose, have many photo's that are worth keeping; a good backup-plan is essential nowadays, even for private persons.

One thing in general: Encrypting and high compressing of backups, I strongly advise against it, the reason? If a compressed and/or encrypted backup-file has only a byte defective, then all the files inside the archive are toast; if a file from the unencrypte, uncompressed set has a defective byte, then you loose one file (which yet may be usable).

There was one poster, can't find the post now, who asked for a backup program for serial number... Titan has the option to backup your registry; so... the program may be very well doing what you're asking :-)

Installation: Setup asked for a connection to the Internet once, popped up a window with the serial number, which has to be copied to the clipbord; then the installation continued, pasted the serial, gave them my details (let's see if they'll spam me...), after which it asked for another access to the Internet. Then it seened to be fully activated, 'seemed' because after I closed the program and started it immediately again, it once again asked for access to the Internet. (Yes, I have a firewall installed!) During installation my AVG 7.5 free was fully active, which didn't bother the installation program at all.

Backup speed: No encryption, no compression 345.25 MB in slightly under 13 minutes; which is acceptable if you run the job scheduled and during the night (Oh, and this was a backup from one external USB Hard Disk to another External USB disk, which slows things down.)

Resources: Titan used 2% CPU time at the most, and needed 38.58 MB memory while backup'ing.

Usage: Titan is easy to use, even without a printed manual, and your first backup can be running within minutes!

Price: Titan can't beat the freely available ones, but I would place this program in the "Nice Price" category, with a very friendly interface; and I'll give it absolutely a Thumbs Up!

Thanks to the GAoTD-team for this very nice utility!

For those who want to store multiple backed-up versions of a file, I'd recommend Version Backup. ( http://www.versionbackup.sb-aw.com/ )
I've been using it for a few years now. There are free-for-personal-use and paid versions available. The one thing I find unique about Version Backup is it automatically keeps n versions and erases the others automatically. I don't need to go over my backup archive and erase really old versions to free up space.

Check it out.

I was hardly seeking for a free program like that, with the ability to backup to ftp! (and sore paths)

I didn't manage to install it with GAOTD setup ( prog pops up with registation key windows, then close...) so i downloaded it from the editor's site:

http://www.neobytesolutions.com/downloads/titanbackup.exe

Install Ok, registration works.

Tested backup on ftp: work fine.

GREAT Professionnal soft, thanks to the editor and to GAOTD!

#18, any program that reads standard self-extracting archives can be used to restore selected files from them (for example, the open-source 7-Zip).

#32, you have to use the the serial number that Activate provides (use copy-and-paste), and activate and register the program. Help, About will tell you whether it's licensed.

This is a superior product.

For years I have used SecondCopy www.secondcopy.com - it has, again, just won the Shareware of the Year award [Utility prog]. Even though I have written to SecondCopy their prog still does not include a backup option for Outlook etc. or the ability to write directly to CD or DVD. Titan DOES backup Outlook and to CD / DVD if required even when Outlook is running - brilliant!

A lot of features - zipped files, incremental, differential, send by e-mail are the same with Titan as SecondCopy so it must follow that Titan is on a par, at least as good, as Second Copy but Titan has the edge with the Outlook / CD options [that SecondCopy doesn't have].

An absolute keeper. Installed easy, easy to operate and activate. The only downside is that, unlike SecondCopy, the program does not run 'hidden' and whilst you can create a desktop shortcut to run a backup, a window pops up asking you to confirm - my only negative comment. Well done GTD and Neobyte.

#22 - I also use Acronis and of course it is the tops for backing up your system but even Acronis doesn't backup Outlook if Outlook is running. Another serious disadvantage of Acronis is tha saved files have the extension tib You cannot access these on any other PC unless it has Acronis [True Image] installed. Titan provides the option to zip or make exe files of backup data. Conclusion between the two? No comparison - Titan wins hands down.

A gem of a giveaway and a great start to the week,

#25, the 4 GB limit is probably imposed by the archiving code (although there are .zip versions that support larger files). Also, this program is designed to support Windows 98, where FAT32 has a 4 GB file size limit. The limit has nothing to do with page files. If you want to backup files larger than 4 GB, you can't use compression (my computer generates individual files of 13 GB or more daily).

25# I have a 19 gig backup made by True Image, so your 4 gii limit in Windows seems wrong! It probably is a program restriction.
