GFI Backup - Another Free Backup Tool

There is a new (and free) data backup tool available called GFI Backup. What sets this product apart is the use of "wizards" to configure the data to be backed up.

In case you are unfamiliar with what a "wizard" is, it is a series of prompts that ask you where something is located, what actions should be taken and under what conditions. Most of us use wizards when we install software for the first time: we are asked where it will be installed, whether we want it to load on startup etc. Many installation and deployment packages are basically wizards.

GFI Backup lets you do incremental backups and even works with removable memory storage such as USB flash drives and external hard drives. GFI Backup will store the backed up data on your selected site and is not to be confused with an online backup service.
