    Yosemite FileKeeper Pro 2.8 review

    8  

    Yosemite recently carried out a survey and discovered that 76 per cent of laptop users never back up their hard drive, let alone just before going on a trip. If you lose your laptop, you lose all your data, so it pays to back up often.

    Windows Live OneCare 2.0 review

    Windows Live OneCare 2.0 review

    8  

    Microsoft's goal with Windows Live OneCare was to create a one-stop maintenance application that applied software updates, performed drive checking, and offered firewall and malware protection. The aim was good, the execution less so, with some common infections falling through the net. Now that it's reached version 2.0 has there been any improvement?

    Acronis True Image 11 Home review

    8  

    Acronis True Image is a well-known example of back-up software and remains one of only a handful of applications that people are prepared to spend money on. Version 11 packs in the features and there are some great aspects worth shouting about.

    Avanquest Disk Copy & Clean review

    8  

    Data and system recovery software is an essential product to keep on your shelf. Granted, you'll feel slightly aggrieved for shelling out on a piece of software that you may never use, but if you do suffer a total system crash then it can become worth hundreds of pounds - maybe even priceless to you in the struggle to rescue your sensitive data.
