Easy and flexible file backups

Backs up your files

You know creating regular backups is important, but you never seem to get the time to burn those CDs and copy your most important files—and with several PCs and laptops it’s even more daunting. All those photos in all different folders. Thousands of songs. Never fear. It’s simple to safeguard it all. OneCare detects new and changed data files on your networked computers and backs them up to the location you choose automatically. Just set it up once, and you're done!
