Every computer user has experienced
the pain and frustration that come from a lost
file or an accidentally deleted folder. Too often
important data is lost due to our careless mistakes
or a hardware failure or some well-meaning individual
who deleted the file without knowing it was important.
Such an event is more common than you may realize,
especially on corporate networks where files are
constantly being shared, accessed and modified
by more than one user. Fortunately, there is GrandBackup
that puts you back in control over your files,
ensuring that important documents won’t be lost
for good because they can always be restored
from a backup.
GrandBackup Ultimate offers you an elegant
way of securing files and folders by putting their
copies to a safe location of your choice. This
may be a folder on the local hard drive
of a desktop PC or a laptop,
or any networked computer, or
an FTP server. There is also
the opportunity to save copies to CD or DVD disks.
The amount of data to back up doesn’t really matter.
GrandBackup can span a backup copy across
multiple disks if it’s too large to fit on one.
For your peace of mind, the program allows you
to encrypt backups and protect them with a password.
Compression is also available,
so the backups do not take too much of your hard
disk space. GrandBackup Ultimate’s unique
feature is its ability, by means of a bundled
software tool, to locate and recover accidentally
In terms of usability and ease of use, GrandBackup
really stands out. Its biggest specialties are
the Explorer-style interface and Task Setup dialog,
both of which make GrandBackup Ultimate
friendly even to those users who have had little
exposure to computer technologies. Setting up
a new backup task only takes a minute or two.
Guided by an intuitive dialog, you’ll specify
the source location(s), the destination location,
and the frequency at which you want to back up
your files. When the specified time is reached,
GrandBackup performs the task in the background
automatically without any interference from you.
Besides timed backups, tasks can be configured
to start on certain events like detection of an
external disk, e.g. a floppy or a USB flash disk,
change of a file’s size or attributes, file/folder
