There are many ways to back up your PC in order to keep your data safe, and hundreds of programs that offer to help you do it. One recent discovery of mine is Zback, which is a simple backup program from a talented programmer in Croatia.
Zback is tiny, and the download is less than 1 MB. The program is malware-free according to VirusTotal and Web of Trust, and runs on Windows 7 and above. It's also portable, with no installation required. Just download, unzip, and double-click on the .EXE file to run the application.
You can then choose a source and destination folder, and opt to either sync or back up. There's a handy preview feature so you can understand precisely which files will be copied or deleted, before you push the button to begin the actual operation.
In my tests, Zback proved both simple and fast, so give it a try if you want something that can copy files in a flexible way and which is easy to use.
My thanks to Colin Culpitt Smith for the tip-off about this handy utility, which you'll find at http://titan.fsb.hr/~dzorc/zback.html
