BullGuard Backup is a handy backup tool that can copy your files to local drives, or 10GB (upgradeable if you need it) of secure online storage centre.
A straightforward wizard makes it quick and easy to create backup jobs. There's direct support for saving your Outlook, Outlook Express, Windows Mail or Thunderbird emails, and of course you can specify whatever file and folders you'd like to protect.
The program can run incremental backups, saving only the changes made to files, improving performance. Your backups can be additionally be zipped up to save space, or encrypted to keep confidential data safe from snoopers.
BullGuard Backup also includes versioning support, which means you can back up multiple versions of the same file.
A straightforward scheduler allows you to run backup jobs when you're not around. The "Backup when idle" option is particularly useful, only starting a due backup job when your computer isn't being used, and pausing it again if the program detects that you've returned.
But if you'd like to make simple, ad-hoc backups, then you might prefer to use BullGuard's Online Drive. This shows up in Explorer as an extra drive, and backing up and restoring files there is as easy as dragging and dropping.
Please note, the subscription price provides a 10GB online account that may be used by up to 5 computers, so it could help to protect your entire home network.
