Windows 7: Instant local drive back-up software - recommendations?

Instant local drive back-up software - recommendations?


I am on Windows 7 Professional, 64 bit.
i7 processor with 12 gb ram
10k rpm Sata 3 boot drive
Graphic Designer using Photoshop and Illustrator, and a variety of other programs.

I have used Memeo Backup Pro in the past for backing up my files INSTANTLY upon saving the file.... I liked that it did that. Not into waiting till the end of the day for a scheduled backup to run; I've lost too many files in the past due to corruption after working on them for an hour or less....

I would lose a LOT of productivity if I got hosed after working on a complex Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop file if it crashed after working on it for even a half hour.

I save often, and Memeo saves a backup to my predetermined destination drive instantly. HOWEVER.... Memeo is buggy as heck and it has screwed with programs and caused Windows 7 functionality problems....

So... I am wanting to try another, similar backup program that might have better user reviews. Can you help? I tried a demo of Live Backups and it sucked... couldn't even get it to work after setting up the parameters .... Thanks for suggestions.

I haven't used automated synchs, but it might be interesting to use task scheduler and Synctoy - except be aware that Synchtoy has an issue with deletes.
I saw this, and it might meet your needs.
