Ocster Backup 8 Pro - review

Ocster Backup Pro 8 je novou verzí produktu. Byl jsem velmi překvapen, když jsem si přečetl co všechno nová verze dokáže. Bez nadsázky lze říci, že obsahuje vše, co si jen může uživatel od softwaru v této oblasti přát. Přesvědčíte se o tom sami snadno z následujícího přehledu vybraných funkcí. Program v této verzi není dosud lokalizován do českého jazyka, což není žádnou velkou překážkou, vzhledem k tomu, že ovládání programu je naprosto intuitivní a nevyžaduje žádné speciální technické znalosti. Zde uvádím výběr hlavních funkcí nové verze:
Ocster Backup Pro 8 is a backup software that was designed from the start to work fully automatic. You simply specify what you want backed up and when and then the software takes care of the rest.

Ocster Backup Pro 8 is really easy to use and requires no technical knowledge at all. With the software's scheduled automatic backups you simply select what to back up and when and that's it. The software will automatically keep your data safe! A unique new technology called Infinite Reverse Incremental Backup enables Ocster Backup Pro 8 to create much smaller image backups than other backup solutions. The total size of the backup data is reduced by approximately 50 %!
