Migo PC Backup Review
Migo PC Backup wins our "TopTenREVIEWS Bronze Award" as an excellent data backup software program. One of few programs that will do a full image backup, PC Backup by Migo Software is solid backup software with a wide range of features. You can even backup all your Windows Operating System settings and preferences. This option saves you time if you ever need to do a system restore.
Migo PC Backup has a simple, one-click data backup and a one-click restore button. Click this button, choose where you want the backup stored, then PC Backup backs up the entire system to that location. If you have more than one hard drive on your computer, this tool will copy information contained on it too; you can't specify which hard drives will be backed up with the one-click feature.
The open file backup features allows you to backup files even if they are currently in use. In addition, Migo PC Backup incorporates a virus scanner so your backup information is secure.
Migo PC Backup cannot backup your address books or Internet Favorites without backing up the entire computer system. Migo PC Backup does support drive spanning, allowing you to utilize multiple drives for backup. Another nice feature is the ability to create a bootable disaster recover CD/DVD. This disaster disc will fully restore your computer without having to install any of the original software or the operating system.
Ease of Use:
We had no problems installing or setting up Migo PC Backup. The one-click option to backup and restore is a handy and excellent tool if you backup and restore your entire computer system frequently. All users will find the one-click simplicity reassuring.
The rest of the program isn't as easy to use, but isn't overly complex either. The layout and native Windows approach should feel natural to most users.
Migo PC Backup does an excellent job backing up and restoring data and you have a variety of backup options.
Migo PC Backup provides convenient help; with the push of a button you can turn your cursor into a question mark that allows you to click on any feature to view a short description.
Migo Software's Migo PC Backup has help document files complete with an index and search engine. Although the help files were useful, we felt Migo PC Backup lacked tutorials to walk users through the entire backup process.
Overall, Migo PC Backup is a good data backup program. The backup process is easy, and more importantly, so is the restoring process. With additional features and simple functionality, PC Backup by Migo is a good data backup solution that will protect your files while you save them and allows you to easily restore your system in the event of a disaster.
