NovaBACKUP is a feature-packed backup tool that makes it easy to protect your most valuable files.

The program has plenty of backup options. You can choose to back up your entire system drive, your documents, music, pictures or emails at a click, for instance. Support for incremental and differential backups ensures NovaBACKUP will transfer only new or modified files, improving performance. And antivirus integration allows you to check the files you're backing up for malware, so viruses won't be saved to perhaps reinfect your PC at a later date.

By default you'll be able to back up only to local or network drives. But there's also support for backing up to one of a selection of online storage providers for additional security. These will cost you extra, though, so if you've your own storage space somewhere with FTP access then you may prefer to use that, instead: just set the program up with its details and you'll be able to back up there just as though it was a local file.

And with disaster recovery and disk imaging options, Blu-ray, tape backup and removable media support, and a powerful scheduler for unattended backups, you'll soon be able to set up a backup plan that will keep your data safe from harm.

Verdict

The interface can take a while to figure out, but once you've mastered the basics then NovaBACKUP proves to be a very capable backup tool
