"If you manage a number of servers that require a good uptime, you should know how crucial it is to maintain well-organised backups of your data. Not only to is it important to organise your backups well so you know what to retrieve when something goes wrong, but also have a system in place so that your server can return to being productive as soon as possible after a crash. This sometimes means being able to retrieve data to the same server and sometimes moving to a whole new server. Kleo Bare Metal Backups offers a free solution wherein you take a snapshot of your complete system. If something fails, you just restore the whole system from a backed-up image.

"Kleo Bare Metal Backups is a freely distributed product from Carroll-Net, Inc (http://carroll.net), a company that has been in the business of protecting and retrieving data for over 15 years. This experience shows in the design of the software. Its simple design interface and ease of use make it a good option for not very technical people. The software caters primarily to business users that have several desktops and servers on their network. That said, there is no reason why it cannot be just as effective for a home user.

"Rather than cramming in several options all at once, Kleo's well-thought-out interface is split into several screens."
