Laptop backup tool Clickfree C6If you have internet business – computer must be one of the most important tools you use in your business. That’s my case, especially that I travel a lot and carry it with me.
I like exotic countries, where it’s hot, sunny and close to the beach. Unfortunately, many of such places aren’t usually safe. Their climate is also not very much laptop friendly. However, I was lucky so far – my computer has not yet been stolen or damaged in any other way :)

In search of…
To protect data stored on my computer, I’ve been searching for the best possible solution. Something which is:

  • easy to use
  • light to carry
  • time-saving

but also enabling me to:

  1. backup all the data just by plugging the tool
  2. backup the whole computer (operational system, applications and software, documents, music files, videos, photos, etc.)
  3. restore the data whenever I want
  4. repair lost or broken files
  5. restore my computer files on a different computer.

It’s quite a lot of features but the last thing you want is to make backups manually and partially on your own. Also the thought of spending countless hours on installing what you lost from your computer, sounds like an awful waste of time and energy!

Discovery
I didn’t hesitate when I discovered Clickfree C6. This automatic backup tool has all the features mentioned above. In addition to that you can password protect its access. You can make backups of different computers and they will be stored separately, waiting for you to use when you need them. Moreover, you can use this backup hardware, while working on your computer. Clickfree C6 is also small, light and easy to carry.

Disadvantages
I haven’t yet found any. The one thing, which can surprise you at the beginning is that, the first backup can take several hours – the more data you store the longer it takes. In my case it was more than 5 hours. However, the next backups are fast and can take less than half an hour.

    That’s awesome.
    I’ve been having horrible thoughts about losing my computer lately. I’d definitely be in a lot of trouble. Clickfree sounds nice and simple.

    Just had a bad experience in the “losing of the laptop” area of my life and it wasn’t pleasant. Thanks for this info, I will be looking into this more as an option.

    That’s the perfect tool for me! I’m not a nerd, and sometimes I feel a little stupid to the IT things. That’s why I always need to backup my system, if I do something wring, I need the possibility to restore. This tool seems to be the perfect choice, because it is the most user-friendly device I’ve ever seen. Thanks for the inspiration!

    I was just wondering, what happens if the backup tool itself gets lost? Do you have any back up of your back up? :) Thanks for the review

      Hi Daniel,

      Great question! Very good solution is to have additional backup in the cloud.

    You really make me laugh Daniel on what you have said. That’s really a big problem if your back-up will get lost. I can suggest that this back-up file must also have an inner back-up so that is the main back-up will be corrupted this inner back-up can retrieve all the lost data from the main back-up. Thanks for the great review about ClickFree,.

    This is really great. Without laptop one can not imagine internet marketing and storing data is really really important. Thanks a ton for sharing such useful information.

    the initial data backup taking more than 5 hours is no where a disadvantage in my opinion, because that is in reality what a hard disk should take when you back up a hard disk which is full with content.

    That must be one of the biggest fears of online workers. Especially if they don’t have any of their work saved in any place besides their computer hard drive. I will have to go check that out because it would totally be worth any amount of money within reason.

    I do my backups via carbonite but I still think it is a good idea to do a hard copy. It seems like a nifty little device. Thanks for the post

    Hi Justyna,

    I’m always looking for innovative backup solutions. What interests me in the Clickfee C6 is the ability to backup not online files, but also the operating system and software programs so you can basically get your computer back exactly the way it was before.
