Organize, Protect and Share your Hard Drive

Gene Barlow, from User Group Relations, will start by describing the various options you have to better organize your hard drive to serve your needs. How you organize your hard drive can affect how protected your files are and how easy it is to use them. He will show you how he personally organizes his hard drive and why he chose to do it that way. Then he will demonstrate a software tool, Acronis Disk Director 11, that makes organizing your hard drive very quick and easy to do.

Second, doing regular backups of your computer’s hard drive is the most important thing you can do to protect the content of your computer. He will describe the backup approach that will give you the best protection for your computer. This will be followed by a demonstration of the best backup utility on the market, Acronis True Image 2013.

Acronis True Image 2013 has introduced a new function that allows you to easily share certain files with your other computers and with friends and family across the internet. No expensive online storage is needed to use this new facility in True Image 2013. After a short description of the many sharing options available to you, Gene will show you how easy it is to use the new Data Synchronization feature of True Image 2013.

At the end of the meeting, Gene will offer a free software product to each of the attendees to monitor the well being of their own hard drive. He backs up his customers with a special Starter Guide and extended technical support. “I want everyone that buys from me to be totally successful in using the products I offer”, he says.

This presentation will be delivered by Skype from St George, UTAH.
