Nero BackItUp is a tool that lets you back up files and folders and burn them to disc, for safekeeping.
The interface of the program is user-friendly. You can create backups with the "one-click" Nero Live Backup module, backup and restore drives, as well as synchronize folders.
You can get started by configuring the source and output for your backup, as well as the schedule interval (e.g. for two hours).
In addition, you can use "Nero Online Backup" to store data online, create a file backup from the information you have saved on your hard drive or external devices, and build a highly secured drive backup of your system partition.
Moreover, you can create a new synchronization task, thus you can carry with you the most important data at all times, on a removable drive, as well as manage jobs and restore backups.
Other tools found in Nero BackItUp allow you to create an ImageTool disc, in case disaster strikes on your computer, and a SyncTool to your preferred media. But you can also erase rewritable discs and view disc information.
In the "Options" menu, it is possible to configure proxy and FTP settings, enable email accounts, create file filters, disable tips, remove additional backup functions from the Windows Explorer context menu, and more.
The program uses a high amount of resources and manages to complete a task in a reasonable amount of time (this can take a while, depending on the size of the data you are backing up).
No errors have been shown in our tests, and the utility did not hang or crash. Nero BackItUp also comprises a comprehensive help file, thus it can be used even by inexperienced individuals.
