BackUp Maker can safeguard your information by making copies. It works by creating backup or restoring jobs. Luckily, doing this is quite easy as there are wizards for every kind of job. Besides, you can select from Basic and Expert modes. For most users, using a simple selection is easier. This allows backing up such common locations as videos, music, documents, pictures, browser bookmarks and emails. Moreover, you can also make a personalized selection by browsing and selecting the desired folders.

The application supports multiple backup methods, such as full backup, incremental backup and differential backups, depending on your needs. Likewise, you can use practically any location to save the copies, which includes a local disk, a network folder or an external drive. Additionally, you can save the contents as an archive, burn a disc or upload them to an FTP server. If it is required, you can set the program to encrypt the backup copy using any of various strong algorithms.

The created jobs can be scheduled to execute on a regular basis or when certain conditions are met, including system events such as logging off or plugging in a USB storage device. In addition, you can organize groups of jobs into categories for easier management. Once a backup job has been finished, the program can automatically perform other tasks. On the other hand, the tool also supports restoring contents from a backup copy. This operation is even easier than backing up, as all it takes is loading the archive and selecting a restore location.

In general, BackUp Maker can be most useful for network administrators and other people responsible for preserving digital information. Moreover, it can be useful for home users who don't want to lose their data. Luckily, despite the apparent complexity of the task, the program doesn't require special skills.
