Iomega QuikProtect is an application designed to offer automatic backup for the data files on your computer, creating backup folders without interrupting your work.
The layout of the main screen is very simple and suggestive. It includes straightforward sections such as "What", "Where" and "When," which make it very easy for you to access the main functions of the application. Thus, you will quickly grasp the steps you should follow for this process. First, choose the files that you wish the program to protect, by accessing the "What" screen. You will notice that the program provides protection for a number of folders by default and that you are able to modify them according to your interest. By accessing the "Where" screen, you may select the destination where you wish Iomega QuikProtect to send the protected files. Finally, you may preset a specific time at which you want the application to backup your files by visiting the "When" section.

Another appreciable characteristic of Iomega QuikProtect is that it stores backup files only once, which is important because, thus, it will not overload the database. It means that, if you have decided to backup files according to a schedule, it will not store the same files every time the program starts running, but only when the files have been modified.

All in all, Iomega QuikProtect proves to be a very helpful backup application, which can be conveniently used by anyone who wishes to secure the data files on their system.

johann schuster Mein Screen Play Plus wird bei Verwendung als externe Festplatte auf Windows 10 zwar
erkannt aber kann nicht verwendet werden, da es nicht als Laufwerk mit einem Buchstaben angezeigt wird.
Vielleicht hilft Quick Protect weiter.

Ginette Chouinard I use Quick Protect v 1.3.3.19260 since may 2012 on Windows 7 and I love it!
1) Will it work with Windows 10 that I am about to download?
2) If not, what do you recommand?
3) I sometimes have a message : "Une exception non gérée s'est produite dans un composant de votre application. Si vous cliquez sur Continuer, votre application va ignorer cette erreur et essayer de continuer. Le thread a été abandonné." What does it mean? Thank you.
