MAGIX PC Backup MX

MAGIX PC Backup MX is a powerful tool which will help to back up your most important files online, to local or external drives, CDs or DVDs.

The program is designed to be very easy to use. Launch it, for instance, and you don't have to go wading through menus or dialog boxes to discover the scheduler: it's right there, in the Automatic Backup option. Choose the files, partitions or drives you'd like to protect, select a backup destination and frequency, optionally add password protection, and you're done: MAGIX PC Backup MX will now automatically back up your files at the specified times.

It's just as easy to back up your data online to the MAGIX WebDisk. You get 2GB of space for free, but can pay to add more at any time.

If you really want to keep your files save, then it could be worth enabling the program's Live Backup feature. Point MAGIX PC Backup MX at your most important folders - Documents, say - and it'll monitor them closely, automatically backing up files just as soon as they are changed.

Should the worst happen, restoring your data is very straightforward. A "Restore" tab within MAGIX PC Backup MX makes it easy to choose the files, folders or drives you'd like to be recovered. Or, if your drive has been so corrupted that it won't even start, you can fire it up from the program's Rescue Disk. (As long as you've created it, anyway - go to the Additional Features tab to do that first.)

And there's even more, with MAGIX PC Backup MX sensibly including an Undelete tool which might avoid the need to restore a backup altogether. And the bundled Data Shredder will securely overwrite confidential documents, so you can be sure that their contents are gone forever.
