A free data backup software

by jolinjay / March 27, 2008 4:30 PM PDT

I am looking for a free data backup software and I google "backup software" there is EASEUS data disk copy.

Somebone told me that you could backup your data without creating a new partiton on the destination harddisk, if possible? Thanks for any replies.

Depends on what you want to backup.

If you want to just backup some files and folders, I nurn them to DVD's. I also use an external hard drive. Some people use an evternal storage device.

Most programs come with disks and some can be redownloaded. The ones that are no longer there, back those up also.

Remember always make backup copies of items that you can't afford to lose.

the source harddisk is 40 GB and 25 gb data on 3 different partitions in it then I would like to use that programme and copy it on the destination hard disk (80 gb) with 25 gb data on 3 different partitions .

While I can debate if copying from

Hard disk to another hard disk is backup (where is the real backup?)

What you may want to look at is SYNCBACK.

-> But what you can't lose should be on write protected media such as tape or today's tape "Dvdrw".

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
