Backing up our PC data is something few of us do, but it is a sensible and hassle-free task, particularly with Argentum Backup.
Argentum Backup is a tiny program that uses little in the way of system resources, but makes the whole backup process effortless.
Various templates are included so that you can begin backing up a PC's most important data immediately. These include email contacts and messages, registry settings, My Documents and Windows Shell settings.
Backing up other files/folders simply involves creating a new task and defining exactly which data to backup. There is no limit to the number of tasks you can create, and each can be given a unique icon for easy recognition.
Backups can be straight copies of files, or to save space they can be saved as Zip files (these can be password-protected if desired).
Backups can be carried out manually, or scheduled on an hourly, daily or weekly basis.
Users who require more control over their backups can make use of the many advanced settings to be found throughout the software. Most, however, will be happy with the basic settings.
