Simple Projects – How To Guide

One of the great benefits of Nero BackItUp & Burn is that users don’t need any prior training. The easy-to-use and intuitive user interface walks you step by step through each process.

Here are five projects that are easy to complete in just a short time.

Scenario: The computer fails to boot up, but valuable information needs to be retrieved from the machine.

Nero BackItUp & Burn Fix: Even if you haven’t done a system backup, Nero BackItUp & Burn can help recover data from the defective computer. Even if the computer is not booting anymore, the drive can be backed up using ImageTool. In this instance, you would boot the system up from the bootable Nero BackItUp & Burn CD, go to Backup, select the partition containing the respective data, adjust the settings and save the data that had been considered lost. Of course, performing regular system backups using ImageTool increases the security of the data and ability to retrieve data in the event of a machine defect.

Scenario: You want to work on a document for the office from your home computer.

Nero BackItUp & Burn Fix: The portable SyncTool is a gadget that can be created for any external storage device. To use SyncTool, simply start Nero BackItUp & Burn, go to Tools and select the respective feature. This allows you to use a USB stick to sync a work folder with a folder on any external computer that you are working on – without having to install the application.

Scenario: Recover accidently deleted files from Flash media or other external storage.

Nero BackItUp & Burn Fix: Imagine that you’ve accidentally deleted photos from your digital camera. With Nero BackItUp & Burn, you can access the camera’s storage on your computer through an USB connection or a card reader. You simply need to start Nero BackItUp & Burn, click on the Nero RescueAgent icon in the upper right corner, select the media to recover files from and follow the wizard. The same procedure is necessary to recover files from previously burned and not correctly stored DVDs.

Scenario: Burn/Back up data to Blu-ray Disc

Nero BackItUp & Burn Fix: Nero considers Blu-ray burning functionality a default feature for a backup application. There are two options to use Blu-ray Discs as storage media within

Nero BackItUp & Burn: Either create a backup of your data by using Nero BackItUp & Burn by selecting the Blu-ray drive as target for your backup or by using the Blu-ray Data Disc option in

Nero Express. You just need to start Nero BackItUp & Burn and click on the Nero Express icon in the upper right corner.

Scenario: Backup is time consuming and you need a simple answer.

Nero BackItUp & Burn Fix: With the Nero BackItUp & Burn Autobackup feature, you don’t have to think about backup again – it just happens. All you need to do is start the Nero BackItUp &

Burn application, go to Backup, Autobackup, and choose between online and offline backup

(Autobackup also addresses Nero Online Backup as option). You also need to choose where to back up to (in case you decide to back up offline). The most appropriate target for storage will be suggested automatically by the software.

Reviewer’s Guide

Why is syncing so important?

Syncing lets you always have the most recent versions of your files close at hand. With Nero

BackItUp & Burn you can keep your files updated by automatically synchronizing multiple copies of individual files. In other words, sync keeps track of the relationship between files on two or more computers, USB flash drives, or other types of popular storage media. For example, if you use a desktop computer at the office, and you use a portable computer when you are on the road, Nero

BackItUp & Burn synchronizes and updates the files on your desktop computer to the modified versions when you reconnect your portable computer to the desktop computer.

Can I create audio CDs?

Yes. Simply select your MP3 or WAV files and burn them with Nero BackItUp & Burn.

Are updates free of charge?

Updates are free of charge and can be done directly through a download from the Nero web site at www.nero.com

.

Can I use Nero BackItUp & Burn with external devices? If so, which ones?

Yes, you can use external devices such as USB sticks, external HDDs, and FireWire devices as a backup target.

What is the difference between the types of backups supported?

Users can choose incremental or differential backups. Incremental backups back up only the data that has been modified or added since the last backup, whether the first full backup or an earlier incremental backup. A differential backup refers to a type of backup update or extension. With a differential backup, only the data that has been modified or added since the first full backup is backed up.

Can I restore files?

Yes, files can be restored to your computer easily using the Restore Wizard. Nero BackItUp & Burn can also restore your files from a drive backup with the File View method.
