Backup for dummies (like me)
on 27 April 2011
The software is very simple and easy-to-use. You install it, point it at the backup drive you want to use, the drives you want to backup, and that's it, it will start backing up everything. There are very few options and settings you can change. For example, I would have liked the ability to exclude certain directories (temporary files) and file types (virtual machine drive files), but SaveMe pretty much just backs up everything.
One quick tip: a little-advertised fact is that Rebit's software is available for a free 30-day trial period. Go to Rebit.com's support forums and look for the "latest version" discussion thread, where you'll find download links for Rebit's software.
A second quick tip: You still ought to get an offsite backup IN ADDITION to this! What if there's a fire? Or a burglar steals your computer _and_ the backup drive?! What I do is use a free Dropbox account. It's only 2GB, for the free package, but that's _plenty_ for all my irreplaceable Word documents, Excel Spreadsheets etc.
