How good is the program that comes with windows that will backup your data?
It does the job - it's a very watered down version of Backup Exec which is the industry standard.
It does the job, but is a piece of shit.
it's a piece of shit, don't use it. use something simple like syncback to automate your backups to an external drive
Can you explain what you don't like about it?
you end up with a single bkf file. if the file becomes corrupt, you lose everything
So use multiple files...
Any corruption to your backup creates a similar problem.
I use it, works well for simple tape backups.
I use it to backup to an external drive myself.
