Whenever you reinstall Windows because of one or other reason, you have to carefully backup all of your files – your personal files, files in the download folder, files in the user profile folder, files from the desktop, web browser bookmarks, web browser settings, email client settings, and many more files that you might easily forget about. But if you do not want to leave some important files while reinstalling Windows or when choosing to migrate to a new computer, then you may want to use Fab’s AutoBackup software.
Fab’s AutoBackup can select all the files from the personal profile folder, public folders, web browser settings, email client settings, and many more important files for the backup. It can also be customized to include or exclude files as you wish. You can even make it include some of the custom files with the backup.
The software uses a very straightforward approach. As you launch the software, it shows only two options – to backup data and to restore data. The developers were right in thinking that there is no description necessary for these options. If you choose to backup your data, then it displays you a comprehensive set of options and allows you to choose which of the files and which of the settings are to be saved in the backup. The backup is not password protected therefore you should either delete these backups after restoring files from them or use an archiving tool like 7-Zip or WinRAR to password protect them.
The restore data option is even simpler than the backup process. You simply have to select the backup file, choose a user profile, pick the files from the backup to restore and it will do the rest. Everything is done very smoothly and you end up having the same files, settings and even the same desktop wallpaper after the restore.
Fab’s AutoBackup is a no-nonsense software to backup and to restore all of your personal and other files before reinstalling Windows or when moving over to a new computer. The trial version does have some limitations about how many files can be backed up, but you can pay for the license and get these limitations removed.
