Don't Lose Data On The Go

“Employing a locally connected and controlled backup device as well as a remotely located cloud backup service ensures that one way or another, the most valuable data files will be protected from loss,” says Rebit’s Batchelor. “The most effective system is one that keeps working in the background and protects your valuables without any need for action on your part.”

Rebit Pro

“The problem is that you have to remember to back up. Now there’s a fix to remembering – Rebit Pro…Saving a copy of local files proceeds every 30 seconds, as files are changed, protecting you from almost any loss. In addition, the USB or NAS full backup will be mirrored to the cloud once each day…So for protection in case of hard drive failure, theft or malware/virus attack, use Rebit Pro for easy and complete back up of your computer or laptop.”

A Brief History of Rebit

“To someone who has been setting up backups for a while, this is really impressive… Rebit gets it. They’ve made a product that does a very specific thing very well: worry free backup. To do, no other program quite does this… Now its added two more options: cloud backup and backup to a network drive. I was initially spooked that they’d added those two features but the latest version of Rebit has no discernible performance impact on my system… I can’t even remember the last time I’ve seen a program gets faster while adding core features so this is quite an accomplishment, and a sign that Rebit really does get it.”

Technology in Practice. What works? Who Gets it?

“You can now rotate backup drives, and Rebit 5 allows for both direct connect backup (USB or eSata), wireless backup or LAN backup, including Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices. You can restore a file, a folder, all files and folders to a specific point in time (like before you got that virus) or a full restore including your operating system, programs and data. Rebit 5 is still Windows only, and your hard drive needs to be formatted in the NTFS file format for full functionality which is the standard on all recent Windows computers.”

Review: Rebit 5

"Rebit 5 does an excellent job of backing up without being obtrusive or eating processor cycles. In other words, I don’t even know its running. That’s in comparison to Windows backup which I use in the office. It can bring my PC to a crawl or if I’m doing something disk intensive the backup will fail. Rebit is a much better product for individual backup."

A Time Machine-like backup for Windows offices

"Rebit is in the business of providing what InfoWorld's Martin Heller calls "painless backup" -- that is, not just making a backup of raw data, but taking a snapshot of your entire PC. If a catastrophic event occurs, you can restore everything -- data, settings, document location -- and get right back to where you were before the disaster. If you're thinking that sounds an awful lot like Mac OS X's Time Machine feature, you're right, it does -- think of Rebit as Time Machine for Windows -- but Rebit 5 also incorporates user feedback to provide features that are pointed at small businesses."

Ridiculously Simple Ways to Back Up and Recover Your Digital Life

"The price tag of a good backup system is easily justified and greatly valued when you need it.

Such is the case with image based backup products (like Rebit SaveMe) that provide full system protection for your digital work as well as the operating system and applications."
