GFI Backup is a useful tool that helps PC users preserve all the files that are important to them on their computer.

No matter how safe and stable your system may be, it’s always possible you might suffer a computer disaster that causes you to lose valuable data. And the only way to prevent that is to use a backup tool to make copies of the files that are most important to you.

GFI Backup lets you easily create and manage backup copies, not only of individual files and folders, but also of email, registry keys and user settings. You can save those backup copies to different locations with GFI Backup, such as an external hard drive, a networked drive, a CD, a USB memory stick or a remote FTP server. GFI Backup also has compression and encryption options as well, requiring you to use less space and protecting your most important data from prying eyes.

GFI Backup is really easy to use and offers lots of options. You can schedule backups so that they're done automatically according to a certain time interval and make the program warn you in case something goes wrong. The program also includes a special syncing module that enables you to keep two different folders up to date, with exactly the same content. Both backup and sync tasks can be easily managed from a special area in GFI Backup.

GFI Backup is a complete backup utility that helps you create copies of important data and sync content between different locations.
