What is Backup Software?

Backup software is created to copy vital data in the event of a catastrophe, failure, user blunder, or hard drive collapse. Software apps that control the practice of backing up and restoring files, databases, hard drives, folders, and even entire network servers are also named disaster recovery solutions.

Backup software is mainly utilized to keep a backup of vital data saved on server and computer hard drives. It can be used for individual computers as well as a firm’s computers, networking devices, and servers. Backup software for individual users backs up selected operating system files and other vital data on the same computer/hard drive.

Backup software can condense data to minimize the amount of backup space required, and offers versioning control for controlling different versions of the same file.

Leading backup software apps include TotalRecoveryPro, Acronis True Image, Symantec Backup Exec, and Norton Ghost. Online backup and recovery applications are available which save your data in the cloud. Cloud backup solutions include IDrive, Mozy, and Carbonite.
