Synopsis: How do you manage your personal information? Do you back it up once a day, once a week, once every month? Never? The fact is: system crashes happen, viruses strike, and Spyware is difficult to avoid. You may not think about backing up important documents every day, but when you need it -- you *really* need it! Introducing Tenebril Lifeguard 3.0 -- an automated backup solution designed to take the guesswork out of protecting your data. Don't get caught without it!

LifeGuard 3.0: How it works

Lifeguard is designed to blend power with ease of use. Its document-centric interface lets you choose what you want to back up without forcing you to find your files. Lifeguard is compatible with the major email clients, so it can back up your emails directly. Lifeguard's filtering lets you back up only what you need, and is powerful enough to look inside emails and documents. LifeGuard is perfect for people on the go, and especially for laptop owners!

LifeGuard 3.0: Backup Media Support

Lifeguard supports more media than any other backup tool. With Lifeguard, you can back up your data to CDs, DVDs, Zip drives, USB pen drives, removable disks, an FTP account. Lifeguard even comes with its own network server, so you can back up all the computers in your home or office to one place! And with Lifeguard's Internet Backup Service, you can securely store your information on Tenebril's servers for access from anywhere, at any time.

LifeGuard 3.0: Feature Drilldown
