The installation was easy and intuitive. It lets you put it where you want to.

Lets get one thing straight right away. Setting up a back-up and a back-up program calls for a plan. This is especially true of a feature full program like CSS Quick Backup. You must think of what are the important bits and what you want to do with them. If you have multiple drives for instance it is always a good idea to place the back-ups of one drive onto another drive.

So that said lets take a look at what CSS Quick Backup can do for you.

It does make your backup planning easy because of it's Windows Explorer integration. You can take look at your drives in Windows Explorer then as you see folders and files that need backing up right click on them and go right into CSS Quick Backup. You can configure CSS Quick Backup to then work on automatic pilot. It can monitor files and folders and automatically. Plus it creates logs that you can check, also the backup files are compressed with zip compression so not only do they take up lots less space they can be opened with any zip utility such as WinZip.

It includes the CSS File Sentry. It is a file backup utility that watches for changes in selected files and creates a backup copy when the file changes while you work.

It also has great restore features.

In conclusion. This is a Great backup program that has all the bells and whistles anyone could want. If you look around you will find that comparable program cost twice as much, so it is a bargain too.

The shareware version is full featured. I think that it is good for 21 days.

Try It! Buy It!
