Also unique to Backup NOW! 3 Deluxe Suite is Dynamic Drive Support (DDS) and Live Update, two NTI-exclusive technologies. DDS enables the software to confirm support for any CD or DVD burner, even if the device isn't registered in NTI's extensive drive support database. Live Update automatically optimizes the backup and recovery software to complement the device.
NTI's new backup/recovery suite offers all of the features that have made Backup NOW! so popular and a host of new ones:
New, Improved EasyStep Graphical User Interface (GUI) - makes the system recovery tool even easier to use. Simplified Disaster Recovery Support for Windows NT, 2000, XP. Network (remote) Drive Support - saves backup images on network (remote) drives.
Advanced File Filtering for improved control of your backup jobs. Enhanced Backup Write Speed - supports higher-performance CD and DVD media.
Backup NOW! 3 Deluxe Suite also includes additional powerful backup capabilities such as incremental and differential support, a backup scheduler, backup over a network, on-demand compare, restore single files/folders and Intra Backup Restart which protects against the possibility of having to restart an interrupted backup job.
The easy-to-use scheduler can be used to carry out full, incremental or differential backups during off-peak hours without human intervention. After making a full system backup, only new or changed files need to be backed up. File Exclude / Include features enable users to bypass or select specific file types from multiple folders for backup. Backup jobs can also be appended or overwritten.
With Network Drive Data Source support for backing up all files from networked drives and password protection, Backup NOW! 3 Deluxe Suite will appeal to businesses, healthcare facilities, financial institutions and government agencies. Even system files that are in use, hidden files and the Windows Registry can be backed up. For complete volume recovery, a bootable emergency recovery disc can be created that automatically restores the system. The software can also be used as a cloning utility when setting up new workstations and notebooks.
Using the software's advanced wizard-driven interface and on-the-fly data compression capabilities, users can store up to 1.4GB of vital data on a single CD or up to 9.4GB on a single-sided DVD disc. The software also enables media spanning over multiple CDs or DVDs and drive spanning for a complete, unattended mirroring of the system's hard drive.
