    Especially avoid the tools come with external hard drives because they are not necessarily good, owners (brand related or hardware) and can be paid if you want more features.

    This type of software is very useful to save a regular part of your PC to the disk (or vice versa) such as saving your files regularly without thinking.

    There are several backup methods that you discover if you're interested: timing (the two contents are identical, it is a backup in both directions) or backup (one way) to schematically.

    You can have great free software: I've tested 2 which are excellent Norton Ghost and SynckBack Cobian Backup.

    Fortunately there are exceptions to the rule, because thanks to a combination of luck, fixes, and backups do not remember losing any of your data in "incidents" they have suffered: - Virus infection (the virus when you erased the hard drive, not like those now used to spam) . Ah, the necessary software: you can copy and paste the file browser, or you can schedule regular copies with free software (eg an older version of SyncBack from 2BrightSparks)
