Backup Utility is a portable tool which can easily backup the selected user profile data in a safe place. Since the profile is, by default, saved in the Windows installation drive, it’s important to backup the data regularly so that if the Windows gets corrupted, the data remains safe in another drive or a remote location.
Backup Utility is very easy to use. It has got only one screen with simple options to select from. You can choose what data to backup. The following options are available:
- My Documents
- My Pictures
- My Music
- My Videos
- Outlook Express
You can select the folders that you want to backup and then select the backup location. There is no browsing option. You’ll need to give the path of the backup folder manually and then click on Start. It will take a short while to backup the data to the backup folder. Another bug that I noted is that the close button at the top right corner of the window doesn’t work. You’ll need to go to File menu and click Exit to close the program.
