Hi everyone. I could use some backup software advice.

I had gotten a bit lazy with backups, and last weekend survived a scare when I had to reinstall Windows because my laptop refused to boot. Luckily I was able to take out the drive, put it in an external case, and backup all my newer files first.

My backup needs are pretty simple. I have two 4TB external drives and a 1TB internal laptop drive. One of the 4TB drives stays in the office and comes home now and then to be updated. I always have at least two copies of everything.

I'd like software to automate the backup. I don't want the files encrypted. I had been using Microsoft SyncToy, which is free and usually worked well. But after a couple of weird instances where stuff wasn't backed up and no error messages, I stopped trusting it. I know Rodolfo has been happy with SyncBack ($40).

Anything else I should consider? Thanks!

Mark

Mark, I use Carbon Copy Cloner, and I like it a lot. The latest update is a big step forward in flexibility and usability.

I've been using SyncBack and have been very happy with it.

I currently have three different scenarios:
1) Direct Copy to back up my C: drive
2) Mirror (Copy/Delete) between my internal drives
3) Mirror (Copy/Delete) between my external drives

Mark, I've been using Free FIle Sync. Used it to clone a backup of my backup (3TB drive to 3TB drive) I have it set to do a Synchronize (two way) with my flash drive to back up my school work as well between two laptops and three flash drives. Sourceforge now includes "extra" software, so just watch the boxes as you run the install, once you get past those there's no more nagging.

Steve, is CCC available for Windows? I looked at their site and as far as as I can see it is Mac only.
The OP is using Windows.

Yeah, it looks really good, but I couldn't find a Windows version. No worries. I'll check out Laura's software and see if I'm comfortable with that versus the paid Syncback. I don't really want to Synchronize both ways, I just want to contribute new or revised files to the backup drive, so based on the name of Laura's free software, it may not give me what I'm looking for.

Mark, where it says Synchronize Two Way, you can click there, and change it to One way and have it overwrite in the proper direction. There are other options in there. I'm at school right now and don't have admin rights on the school computers

btw, it works on Mac, Windows, and Linux

A couple of Huns. Interesting thing to ponder here, is that the technology gap was only separated by 8 years...

Since Jim posted a shot of a Scooter staring you down, I think I will too.

Before I get side tracked, Sheila and I wish you and all of yours a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I had a dusk assignment in far SW Fort Worth this evening, but today I helped Hunter deliver all the Poinsettias he sold to help finance his church ski trip in December. We emptied out my gear trailer, loaded and delivered 130 beautiful Christmas Poinsettias. Chandler and Weston came along to help. Fun day, so much to be thankful for.
