What is Iomega QuikProtect 64-Bit?  (from Iomega)

Simple to use, protect your data on a schedule or after every time a file changes. A wizard guides you through easy first time set-up. QuikProtect backs up your data to external hard drives or networked drives. Access the backups on your external drive wherever you take it - no special software is needed.


Iomega QuikProtect 64-Bit is a software program developed by Iomega. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The primary executable is named QuikProtect.exe. The setup package generally installs about 4 files and is usually about 5.5 MB (5,763,449 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 10. While about 61% of users of Iomega QuikProtect 64-Bit come from the United States, it is also popular in France and Canada.

I have been using this program for several years. It backs up documents, photographs, music, etc. When a new document is saved or new pictures or music are added QuickProtect backs it up to your external hard drive. I wouldn't be without it.
