This program is a very good solution to create backups for your files. You can schedule to run at desired intervals and save files to different locations. You can save to local drive, to a device from network, burn a disc, to FTP or even by email.
It has an intuitive interface and offers different methods of backups: full, incremental and differential. It can make backups for entire system or only for selected files. Includes option to create bootable media.
Is a free software, the only paid thing is additional hard disk space if you want to save backups on their cloud servers.
1. Modern interface
Is a pleasure to use it, it has a nice and clean design where menu and items are easy to find.
2. Create bootable rescue media
From Settings you can create bootable rescue media that will be used to start Windows and boot from that media (DVD..) in order to restore a backup for entire operating system. For files and folders isn’t necessary a bootable media, but for operating system recovery it is.
3. Different types of backups are supported
You can perform a full, differential or incremental backup. The difference between these types consists in how much disk space will take and how long will take to restore the backup.
A full backup will copy all files and you will need more hard disk space if you make many backups.
Differential backup means that the program will work/copy only with files that were changed, so you don’t need a lot of space on hard disk.
Incremental backup is like differential backup, but copy only files changed since last backup. The incremental mode will consume fewer space from hard disk, but will take a little longer when you restore files.
I like to use differential method.
4. Folders and files selection for backups
You have maximum flexibility in choosing areas or specific files that you need to backup. The program helps you to quickly select services like email accounts, browser data, instant messengers conversations, Windows registry files and more.
5. Save where you need
Comodo Backup provides a variety of options where you can save your files. BY default, is an online cloud service provided by Comodo (it has some space limitations for free plans), but you can opt for local computer, burn directly on DVD/CD, network, FTP server or email.
6. Many options available for backups
This program provides plenty of options to customize your backups. use macros to generate automatically name with date, compress and split backup at desired size, protect with password, include of exclude file types, verify files after task and more.
7. Protect backups with password
Is good to put a password on your backups to prevent unauthorized access. You can remember your passwords with a third party free password manager, if you want.
8. Run backups at night
You can set the program to shut down computer after is finishing the task, so you can let it to work anytime and set it to shut down automatically when backup is complete.
9. Real time status about current job
View graph and details about what is happening, in real time, after you start the backup process.
10. Easy to restore
Is easy to restore any backup previously created.
