Automatically Copy Files from One Folder to Another
Can I automatically Move Files from One Folder to Another
"I have many important files stored on D drive on my Windows 10 PC. To protect these files from unexpected data loss disaster, I want to periodically copy them to another folder. Is there any tool that allows me to do it automatically?"
Automatically Transfer Files from One Folder to Another
Actually, many users have one or more folders with important files stored on their PC but few of them keep a backup in other places. It's really not a smart decision as unexpected data loss caused by system issue, disk corruptions or some other reasons can occur at any time! But they just don't remember to back up their data until the disaster attacks.
Fortunately, EaseUS Todo Backup, a professional and easy-to-use backup tool supporting different types of backup, clone, restoration and so on, has one utility called File Backup enables you to copy files from one folder to another as long as you set a schedule. To realize this function, this tool will create an image of your file to another folder daily, weekly or even at a specific time so long as you have set a schedule.
You can preview the image, but if you want to edit it, you must copy it to another place or recover it by using the tool. The image is a little bit different, for it takes less space but the content keeping the same.
Advantages of EaseUS Todo Backup:
- Backup and restore complete partitions or hard drives
