Our friends at GFI have just released a free backup solution for home users. It’s not a stripped-down application, but a complete, fully-featured backup software solution.
In addition to regular backup functionality, GFI Backup Home Edition allows people to sync up data with a remote location, like an FTP server. The application is wizard-driven, so novices won’t have problems using it.
And as far as I’m concerned, the best thing about the software is how it compresses data. Unlike many backup solutions, GFI Backup uses the widely popular ZIP standard. What this means for you is that your backups can be easily recovered anywhere, at any time, as ZIP files are natively supported by all modern OS. And if you’re worried about security, the application supports 256-bit AES encryption.
In you’re interested in trying out GFI’s new free backup solution, the application is available for download right here.
