Install: MyPCBackup

MyPCBackup is a simple to use backup program for all PC users, it does not matter whether you are a technical newbie or technical expert.

MyPCBackup is an on-line backup service you connect to via a Windows desktop program. It only takes a couple of minutes to complete the installation and start your first backup.

Important Note: On this website we specialise in Microsoft Windows software and we will show you screenshots related to the Windows version of MyPCBackup. However, you can also install desktop versions for Apple Mac and Linux computers. See the MyPCBackup website for more information


Once installed the software will run automatically in the background. The first step is to register your name and email for the on-line service and the second step is to download the software to your PC.

Click here to register your name & email and choose a password for your on-line backup account (make a note of this password as you will need it in a few minutes when setting up your desktop software).

The screenshot below shows the website you will register with. There is no commitment or credit card required, it is simply the start of the trial.

When you have entered your name, email & password, click the ‘Sign Up, It’s FREE’ button to be taken to your on-line backup account screen.

In the next step you will be presented with your account page showing your username/email ID and a password field.

The first time you visit this page, MyPCBackup will automatically download the backup software to your PC.

If you do not see a download begin (filename: ‘MyPCBackup_Setup.exe’) then you can click on the red ‘Download Application’ button to start the download.

You have now registered your software, installed the files, you are ready to begin your first backup. The MyPCBackup software will automatically backup your ‘My Documents’ folder which is the usual place files are stored. However, you can choose other folders as well if you select ‘Custom Selection’.

We recommend you start with the Recommended approach to backup ‘My Documents’ and you can always add other folders at a later date. Click on the ‘Next’ button.
