Choosing the right backup tool for...
You'd think that using Google to hunt down what free backup tool out there would suit your needs, however I haven't quite found this to be the case.
I'm just on the hunt for a backup program that will suit my needs using the following criteria:
- Does partition/disk backups, instead of or on top of file backup
- Can be scheduled (usually twice a week)
- Runs as a service (although I'm usually logged in and computer is turned on)
- Optional: Has a backup format that can be read by many other third party programs
My solution so far was supposed to be Comodo Backup. It was free, simple enough while also having the right advanced features such as incrimental backups and scheduling. However scheduling is complicated (even though it shouldn't be), and the program is un-optimized, meaning that sometimes I have to wait a long time before I can move onto the next thing. It seems to barely do the job so far, but I would hope there is something better out there. I would talk about it on their forums, but it doesn't seem to be a category for it on there.
