PC-WELT Backup Easy


PC-WELT Backup Easy is a software program developed by IDG Tech Media GmbH. The most common release is 1.15, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. 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. The primary executable is named backupclient-pcwbe.exe. The setup package generally installs about 50 files and is usually about 34.94 MB (36,636,699 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 8. While about 89% of users of PC-WELT Backup Easy come from Germany, it is also popular in the United States and Austria.
