Whether your hard drive runs out of space or if you want to make a copy of your OS, disk cloning software is all you need for your Windows 10…

Here is a good article (see source link below) that reviews the various disk cloning software options; some FREE some PAID. Disk cloning allows you to make an exact copy of your hard disk (in its’ current state). I often will clone a disk after I do a clean install of Windows so that I can revert back to that original state in the event of a crash.

Best Method I Found To Download, Organize and Archive Your Gmail

Recently I have been working to clear out my Gmail account to stay under the space quota I am allocated at Google. I am someone that saves every email that I send and receive. In my focus of accomplishing this task I recently posted two articles that may be helpful to people who are in the same boat I am in. Both of these articles will help you understand the Google process and what you need to do manage the FREE space you are allocated. Once you surpass the FREE space allocation, Google wants to “sell you” additional space at a subscription rate.

How to “Bulk” Delete Old Emails in Gmail

One of the questions I had when I started this cleaning out process was is there a way to download and save my old Google Gmail emails?

Google will tell you to go to their “Google Takeout” site where you can select and download all of your data (not just emails). That may sound easy, but I have found is that Google packages up your data, whether it is photos or emails, and wraps up that data in downloadable zip files that lack no organization whatsoever and 99% of people will not understand how to do this anyway. Is this a tactic to push people toward buying more space?  Don’t know, but looks like a messy process to me and will only waste your time.

Best Method I Found To Download and Archive Your Gmail:

The method I use to download and archive my Gmail is a third party software application (that is FREE) called MailStore Home.

A Completely Free Windows Backup Software Solution PLUS An Economical Windows Backup Hardware Solution For Folks At Home

A Completely FREE Windows Backup Software Solution…

Something that I like to do here at “What’s On My PC” is to promote file and data backup solutions for people at home. One option, that has been around for years, is SyncBackFree, which is geared for those looking for a simple backup solution.

SyncBackFREE and the commercial versions of SyncBack are developed by 2BrightSparks. 2BrightSparks Pte. Ltd. was incorporated in 2004 and has established a reputation in developing high quality, easy to use utility software. SyncBack, their class-leading backup software, was first released in 2003.

Compare SyncBack Editions. SyncBackFree gives you:

• Simple and Advanced mode
• Runs on Windows 10, 8, 7 and Vista (32/64 bit)
• For Windows Server use SyncBackPro or SyncBackSE

• Completely Free Windows Backup solution!


A Hardware Backup Solution (and Strategy)

Now that you have been given a FREE backup solution, you need something to backup to. Here at “What’s On My PC” I go to a portable backup solution, such as a portable hard drive, to back up my important files (such as documents, photos, and videos). One strategy to consider is to backup your data to the portable drive and if it is really important, store the drive offsite in a safe deposit box. If you can afford it, buy two drives, keep one at home and one at your offsite location and rotate them. It all depends on how important your data is to you; but, the bottom line is that you need to back up your files (you will not regret it).

An economical solution I found on Amazon is the Toshiba Canvio Advance 2TB Portable External Hard Drive USB 3.0. If you want more choices of portable hard drives (and capacities), then CLICK HERE.
