Backup Your Files On Friends Computers Free

User Rating: / 2

You might have heard about backing up your files from your computer to the clouds but in this age of social networking, here is something different you can do about your computer backups. Do you trust your friends enough? Now you can backup your files to your friend's computers.

BuddyBackup, a software that lets you back up your files to your friends, family and colleagues' computers for free. You get safe and secure online and "off-site" backups of your data without having to pay a third party company.

You can say its an backup software works on an Instant Messenger model. You install the BuddyBackup on your computer, add your friends/family to your buddy list (who are also using BuddyBackup on their computers) and select the files that you would like to back up.

Your files are encrypted before they're sent for backup on your buddy's computer. So only you can see those files. If your buddy is offline, BuddyBackup will keep track of the changes you've made to your files and will back them up then next time your buddy comes online.

If you want to back up to your USB instead, you can do that too. As long as the USB drive is plugged in, BuddyBackup uses that to back up your files.

The application runs on the background while backing up your files. So you can do your work without any intrusion. The only downside of this application is that it works only on Windows machines (Windows XP, Windows Vista & Windows 7).
