Regardless of whether at home or at work, backing up data is an essential part of routine computer maintenance. However, manual backup of our data can be a tedious, time consuming and even difficult process that most of us never get around to it. An alternative method would be to invest in software designed to carry out this type of operation to help make the process as quick and painless and possible.
Ocster 1-Click Backup is an easy-to-use data backup software, with well-thought user interface designed for automatic backup of critical data. Ocster 1-Click Backup is really easy to use and requires no technical knowledge at all. You simply specify what you want backed up and when and then the software takes care of the rest. The program will monitor the usage levels of your computer and automatically pause any running backup if processing power is needed for another program. This ensures that the backup will not slow down your computer when you do other things, so you can let it run in the background unnoticed. The backup will automatically resume when enough free resources are available. Ocster 1-Click Backup also keeps multiple old backups of your data (you can choose how many), so you can easily retrieve files from the past or restore an older version of your hard disk. Also included is a bootable rescue CD, so that you can restore your system even if it does not start anymore.
Ocster 1-Click Backup Key Features:
- Fully Automatic & Easy to use : Creates fully automatic backups of your data

- Stop & Resume: Backups can be stopped and resumed at any point. This is handy when the computer needs to be shut down, for example.
- Restore individual files: The contents of the backups can be browsed and files and folders can be restored individually.
- Network support: Files and folders on network drives can also be backed up. The backup data can also be stored on network drives if that is desired.
- Compression: Backups are compressed intelligently to save space.
- Scheduled: Backups can be started either automatically at scheduled times or manually by clicking a button.
- Storage Types: Backups can be stored on hard disk, USB sticks , network drives .
