Are there other ways to backup everything on my computer?


Yes, Zinstall FullBack is not the only option out there (although we believeit is the most effective). Here are some other ways you can handle yourbackup: * Disk Image / Clone tools (Windows System Backup / Acronis): these are the pro-oriented options, which simply take a full clone image of the computer. Like Zinstall FullBack, they capture your entire computer. The downside is that that you have to manually do the backup (so it will be outdated soon), it is very difficult to restore a single file, and if the computer crashes, you’ll need to restore to the exact same hardware model (and you can’t restore to a different Windows). * Copying files to Dropbox / OneDrive: in itself, a cloud sync tool like Dropbox or OneDrive is not really a backup (it’s manual, does not even come close to covering everything you have, does not cover programs or settings), but it is better than having no backup at all! So if your choice is doing nothing at all vs. copying some of your files to Dropbox, use Dropbox. Then again, you can use Zinstall FullBack to turn Dropbox or OneDrive into backup tools – see here for our guides on How to Backup Computer to Dropbox and How to Backup Computer to OneDrive * Apple’s Time Machine: this product is very similar in its concept to Zinstall FullBack, but only available for Mac OS. If you have Mac OS, use it – it is very well done, and simply to set up and use.

settings, profiles and all filesIn this article, we’ll learn how to easily backup your entire computer to yourOneDrive. Not just files (those you can just drag to OneDrive); we are talkingabout having a backup of your programs, applications, accounts, settings,profiles, personalization and all files (not just the ones in your OneDrivefolder)Microsoft OneDrive already serves many of its users as an impromptu backupsolution, for some of the more important files. However, it is in no way acomplete backup product. Out-of-the-box, OneDrive only allows you to manuallysync a file with other computers and with OneDrive Cloud storage. You cannottell it to backup all of your files, it is not automatic, and you definitelycannot backup anything which is not a file (apps, user profiles, settingsetc.)This tutorial demonstrates how to use a combination of OneDrive and ZinstallFullBack software to create a powerful backup, which automatically protectsyour entire computer, and saves your backup both locally and on OneDriveCloud. Backups are done automatically: you don’t need to “babysit” them orremember to run a backup. You just have everything stored in your OneDrive(backups are encrypted, so even if OneDrive gets hacked, your stuff is safe).Most importantly, when disaster strikes, you can restore your stuff to acompletely different computer, including applications, program files, apps,settings, profiles, emails, accounts, passwords, documents, pictures, musicand, of course, all of your files.
