Backup software may be most overlooked optimization tool

Simi Valley / USA, 29 October 2008

NovaStor, a pioneer in data protection, today announced that its newly released NovaBACKUP 10 was named one of the “50 tools to speed up your PC” by PC World. PC World is the most widely-read computer or business magazine among all purchase influencers with a readership of over 4.8 million.

The article discusses downloads that are available to make a PC run more quickly, smoothly and efficiently. NovaBACKUP which provides an all-in-one data protection solution that includes local and online backup as well as disk imaging and virus protection was represented in the “Hard-Disk Cleaning and Backup” category.

According to the PC World article written by Preston Gralla, “Backup software may be the most overlooked optimization tool of all. When something goes wrong with your system, you’ll want a way to recover files and restore your machine to a working state. This software does a great job, and can restore individual files, folders, or a whole disk.”

“NovaBACKUP is the only backup application included in this top 50 list, so we are clearly very pleased to be recommended by PC World,” says Mike Andrews, Managing Director US of NovaStor.
