HP SimpleSave is a backup software for protect files on HP SimpleSave Desktop or portable hard drive. Do you want a free alternative to HP SimpleSave?

Why need an HP SimpleSave alternative?

HP SimpleSave is good for users who are not too tech savvy and don’t ask for advanced backup requirements. This program will automatically scan all possible files to be backed up on your system as long as you plug in the HP SimpleSave portable hard drive. In this way, you’d better keep the drive plugged in your USB port, or the program will re-scans your whole computer and asks you to back up as long as you re-plug the drive. Because HP SimpleSave cannot know you’ve already been into this process before. In addition, it doesn’t have a file versioning backup so updated files will simply get overwritten, and it cannot do full system backup or folder-based backup. Therefore, when you want more beyond what HP SimpleSave can do, for example, you want to create a system backup so that you can bring computer back to earlier date, then you should try a powerful alternative.
