O&O AutoBackup is a (temporarily) free backup and synchronization tool that can be used to safeguard your valuable data by creating a copy on a removable USB or Firewire drive. Unlike many backup tools, this particular offering from O&O Software benefits from being incredibly easy to get up and running, in addition to its free availability.
You can choose to backup an entire drive, a selection of folder or use wildcards to specific particular types of file that should be included, and there are number of options when it comes to choosing how your files should be handled. You can opt to simply copy files from one location to the other or you can choose to copy only new and changed files. The third option is to go down the synchronization route so any files that have already been removed from the source drive will also be deleted from the removable drive.
O&O AutoBackup makes it easy, and free to synchronize data to a USB drive
When it comes to run the backup or synchronization job, you can opt to run it on a manual basis, or you may prefer to use the automatic option so you backup is updated every time you connect the USB drive you are working with. That’s really all there is to it – backing up data is kept as simple as it possibly can be.
For the month of January, O&O AutoBackup is available completely free of charge, but you will need to apply for a free registration code in order to unlock the software. To do so, pay a visit to the registration page, enter your email address and click the ‘Request free license’ button. A serial number will be emailed out to you and you will be given the opportunity to enter this during the installation of the program. Take advantageof this offer while you can – from 1 February, this will revert to being a paid-for product.
