Hello everyone,


I was looking at some cryptolocker threads, and now I want to set up backup of my PC. Windows backup takes space on your Hard disks and I can't afforf that much space. Basically, I use a cloud where most of my important documents and pictures are stored, but I am looking for a safe site/program that can backup all of my data (C, D and E hard disks) online, so I can download the files anytime or overwrite my current files with the backed-up files in case, at example, my PC gets infected with a ransomware. I'm not really willing to pay for that kind of service, so please reply only with free/cracked programs or free sites.
By the way, I'm sorry if my English isn't perfect.


Regards,
Mata

Most, if not all of your main stream backup to cloud services, such as Carbonite and Mozy, include a charge (admittedly not much). How I do it is Windows Easy Transfer to a small (1 TB) external drive, which backs up data.

Hi and Welcome to BleepingComputer

 

There are restrictions, but Tech Radar produces a long list while Microsoft has its own.

 

You can also Google "Free Windows 7 Backup site" and Cobian Backup, Azure Backup and others have direct links...

 

I did not check, but often there are lists kept on this site

 

Thank You -

Mozy, crashplan, check out their small fees one of those you can backup for free to an external drive.  otherwise use dropbox to backup important stuff or google.

 

Look into external drives for backups?

Hi again.

 

I feel that we have given you a large range to choose from, and to add others may only confuse the situation more..

 

Generally if you do select any options put forward, or have questions regarding anything put up, it is now better to direct towards that (those) item(s) only.

 

>> By the way, I'm sorry if my English isn't perfect.<< I think we all understood your question very well, based on the range of answers.

 

Thank You.
