Should you use Transcend Elite backup software?

Transcend Elite is software that helps you manage your Transend’s storage products and keep files organized. It includes backup and restore feature. You can use it to backup files and restore them whenever needed. You can set automatic backup, and some of its products also have a backup button that allows you to create a backup by just pressing it. However, this backup tool only provides file backup solution. If you want to backup an entire hard drive, operating system, or a single partition, you need to use another tool.
