Question

NO COMPRESSION, SYNCHRONISED BACKUP TO NAS

by embeltmg / February 20, 2013 1:02 PM PST

I am looking for a backup program, not too expensive, that can synchronise to a NAS system on a schedule. I also do not want to compress these files, nor mirror the drives.

SyncBack
GoodSync

Some folk can't schedule such but since Windows and other OSes have a schedule feature, it can be done. There is also a command line version called BlinkSync and others that again can be scheduled.

Answer
I recommend Easeus Todo Backup Free

Try Easeus Todo Backup Free, which you can download from http://www.todo-backup.com/products/home/free-backup-software.htm . The March 2012 issue of PC World was very high on the FREE program from Easeus and so is CNET. In my experience with a variety of configurations I have to say I'm very impressed. Like Ghost it will back up to a networked drive, and it will create a boot CD for when your PC won't boot. See CNET's review of it at

Good luck.
