Spb Backup is a cool tool for your smartphone that helps you keepeverything safe. You've heard me preach about backing up yourcomputer and to me this is no different. If you're going put music,pictures, documents, and more on your smartphone, you need to back itup. Spb Backup is the coolest solution I've found to keep all thedata from my smartphone backed up and secure. I've had this program onmy last three (3) mobile devices and it works flawlessly for bothbacking up and restoring.

Spb Backup is very easy-to-use and it has an intuitive userinterface. You can configure it to do full system backups of yourhandheld device or you can do totally customized backups. One of thecoolest features for me is the ability to schedule backups.Spb Backup will startup at the time you've specified and do thebackup. Your backups are stored in self-extracting EXE fileswhich makes it very easy if you need to restore.

Spb Backup also encrypts and compresses your data. So, even ifyou lose your storage card your data is still safe. Also, if youschedule backups you always know how long it is to the next one. Ireally like the fact that the program clearly displays on the screenthat the last backup was run on a certain date and when the next one isscheduled. And, even if you have backups scheduled you can always launcha backup manually to protect new data.

I've tried some other backup programs for mobile devices, but none ofthem worked as well as Spb Backup. It's fast, it's solid, andit's very reliable. I like it so much that I'm not only making it aPick, but also a Dr. File Finder Favorite! In 25 years of reviewing software there aren't very many ofthose. So, if you have a mobile device and you want to keep your databacked up this is the program you need. Give it a try, I give itmy highest recommendation.
