Awards & Reviews
“NovaBACKUP is Windows backup software that’s complex and flexible at the same time. This application’s interface is split into two views: a Simple View catered towards beginners, and an Advanced View with features for data backup experts.
The features from one view are slightly different from what you’ll find in the other. When you choose this application, you’re essentially getting two complex applications rolled into one.
With a multitude of powerful features and an easy to use interface, NovaBACKUP is our TopTenREVIEWS Gold Award winner for Windows backup software”
