I have been using Beyond Compare to backup my files for a while and decided to try out Robocopy. Don’t get me wrong Beyond Compare (BC) is a pretty cool software and I will still use it for its primary function ie. compare folders and files. However, Robocopy has some advantages over BC when used as a backup software.
Just as it surprised me! I want to share this revelation with you!
Previously, I have been using CrashPlan to for backing up my local data to the second hard drive, but they recently changed their business model and will soon forbid free users from backing up locally. Shame, it worked flawlessly. Especially the version retention setting. It automatically reduced the size of the backup archive.
So I started looking for a replacement… and I made a list of backup software to choose from.
