[face=Geneva][/face][color=red][/color]I'm a Nube and I'm looking for a good, no, a great backup program. I've been using Mozy Home free version, but it's been making my life hell. I lose programs, especially paid programs I get from GiveAwayOfTheDay, Gizmo's, etc.  Is there anything out there that will allow me to back up EVERYTHING? If I have to pay for it, I will.

       I received advertisements about Shadow Protect and it seems to work pretty good, although it goes for about $80. I think you could get it cheaper, I will try to find out where. You can download a 30 day trial at
I found a site that advertises it for $29.95 plus shipping at
Hope this helps, if I find any others I will try to post them. Bill.

I use plain ole Winzip to back up my data to a second machine in my home and to a remote FTP server to which I have free access at the moment.  The advantages:

1.  No proprietary protocols involved; whenever I want to I can either read or write using different software or different servers.
2.  Very easy to script and automate.
3.  Many other uses unrelated to backing up.

There are many free programs which claim to be as good as Winzip, but I've never found one which is so easy to script and which can *really* handle multiple large files over both FTP and SMB.

Winzip costs money, but there's a free trial.  And don't forget that noone forces you to update every time they *claim* that they've got a revolutionary new update which is worth paying for.  As with other such programs, you read the New Features list and decide for yourself whether you consider the new features worth paying for.

My $0.02.
