looking for a free backup solution. One click would be nice. I've been using Syncback, but that's becoming annoying to set up. Any suggestions?

OK, you ask for Best Backup Software, then you say you want it free.

 

 

Acronis would probably be the best.  But it's not free.

Best free?  Maybe Easeus To Do?

Easus is a good one but if you want one that does it best without jerking you around open your purse and buy Acronis. Spending some now will prevent future headaches. Right now if I could...I'd spend the bucks and do it up right the first time because later on you might regret it. Just saying!

You set it up once...and forget.  Can't get much easier...

It is when you switch machines often. I'll look into getting Acronis when I have some income. Thanks guys.

Quoting kona0197,
It is when you switch machines often.

If they're networked you can backup across the network.

If they have the same folder tree [OS] you can use the same setup/config for all of them.

If not you can copy the config to other machines and edit as needed.

Ultimately it is one config per machine....and the same applies to ANY backup software...

I think it also depends on how much data you're looking to keep backed up.  If you're talking limited data, like 20-30gb, I would probably look into an online service as long as the person has a high speed connection.  My box.com account came with 50GB which is nice for targeted data.
