No matter which operating system is currently installed on your computer, the number one concern is always the persistent necessity to keep all data secure. If you are among those who chose to use Vista on their PCs and laptops, like the rest of us, you are probably experiencing difficulties in finding effective system utilities that can optimize your work with the operating system. And it just looks like the time is right for all Windows Vista users to start looking for the solution that would allow them to effectively backup Windows Mail.
It is a fact that most of the older Outlook backup solutions will not work for Windows Mail in Vista - which adds one more problem to the process of Vista optimization. However, with the time passing, more and more Vista backup solutions will push their way to the market offering the best functionalities with Windows Mail backup included. But for those of you who just don't have time to wait, here is the good news - there are backup programs which can backup Windows Mail! And they are just as effective as the older solutions which were customized for doing Outlook backup in Windows XP.
So what functionalities should you expect from a backup program which works under Windows Vista? To start with, it should be a fully Vista integrated system. This includes the ability to be installed on a PC under Vista, running tasks as Windows Vista service, and special backup presets that are designed for backup of Vista Registry and Windows Mail.
Besides that, the list of functionalities should include flexible backup scheduler, the option of Windows mail encryption and compression, broad choice of backup storage media including new generation optical disks such as Blu-ray and HD DVD, as well as automatic recording of backup to remote FTP/SFTP servers.
What else to expect from the Windows Mail backup solution? Don't forget about ease-of-use. The program functionalities must be presented on a platter. The wizard like interface is what usually makes things much easier for you. So make sure the program has one. Backup with timestamps and versions has to be present as well, as it makes any backup more convenient. The option of full and incremental backup, as well as the option of Windows Mail synchronization across several computers is surely a competitive advantage for any Windows Mail backup program
