backup software

Software designed to duplicate important data in the event of a hard drive failure, user error, disaster or accident. Software applications that handle the process of backing up and restoring files, folders, databases, hard drives, or entire network servers are also sometimes referred to as disaster recovery tools.

Popular backup software tools include Norton Ghost, Symantec Backup Exec, Acronis True Image and TotalRecovery Pro.

An alternative to standard backup software tools are online backup and recovery services that save your important data to a remote location in the cloud. Examples of cloud backup services include Carbonite, Mozy and IDrive.
