Need To Back Up Your Files In A Compact, Efficient Way? Here We Look At Winrar File Backup Options.
WinRAR is one of the most popular file compressors available, featuring a wide range of archive formats and powerful compression options for Windows users to choose from. Many people use compression software as a way of sending large email attachments in a more compact form, such as the .RAR or .ZIP files you may be familiar with, but WinRAR is also a valuable tool for file archiving.
When looking at different data backup options, it is important to consider how much space is available on the backup system. Windows Live SkyDrive, for example, offers users 25GB of free storage space but that may not be enough if you have a lot of files to store.
Similarly, if you want to store data on a portable storage device, the amount of memory could be a consideration for larger files. In this situation, WinRAR can help by allowing users to:
- Compress data
- Encrypt private data; and
- Split files into highly compressed multi-part archives
Using one or all of these options can help make data backup easier and more secure through the encryption options. Another benefit of WinRAR as a backup tool is that the .RAR format allows users to compress data to much higher levels than a .ZIP archive used by programs like WinZIP.
A backup system is essential to protect important files from hard drive failure, virus attacks and other problems. When considering the type of backup, whether traditional or online, a file compression program can become a valuable part of the process.
