Backup files to removable media with O&O AutoBackup

Removable media is now a great deal cheaper than it used to be, and many computer owners will possess a USB drive of some form or another. While these can be used to transport files from one computer to another, they are also perfect for backing up data. This can be done manually if you have the time, but by turning to O&O AutoBackup you can automate the process and make your life a great deal easier.

This simple tool is notable for its wonderful ease of use – something which is a rarity in backup software. All you need to do is choose whether drive or folder you would like to backup and then indicate which USB or Firewire drive should be used as the backup destination. Once this has been done, the program will sit quietly in the background and will simply update the backup whenever the chosen drive is connected.

The fact that you are able to specify wildcards means that you are able to choose the types of file that are backed up. This is not only a good idea if you are only interested in backing up particular files, it is also useful if you are working with a USB drive with a limited capacity and need to focus on only the most important files. This is not a program that should be viewed as a complete backup solution, but it is still extremely useful, and the fact that it is free of charge makes it well worth the installation.

AutoBackup includes real-time synchronisation. As soon as file is created or changed in your specified folders, AutoBackup will copy it to the destination drive. A new tabbed interface makes it much easier to get started. Define the files to back up, the destination drive, file type and when the backup should be launched (daily, weekly, on device connection and in real time), and you’re done. Simple backups really can be configured in seconds.

What's new in v6?

- New: Advanced Job Management function integrated from our award-winning O&O DiskImage program
- New:  Automatic job deployment at restart if a scheduled PC was off
- New GUI: revamped GUI structure to make using O&O AutoBackup even easier and quicker
- Improved: Trigger multiple tasks with portable devices (plug and play)

Verdict:

A simple, helpful and easy tool for both backing up data and keeping it in sync.

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
