I use Fab’s AutoBackup, it is a reasonably simple and powerful tool for getting your data from one PC onto another or just to ensure that your settings are backed up.

It will find your Outlook PST files if you use Outlook and copy your email signatures.

The best thing about it, it is affordable @ EUR 10.00 or roughly R160.00 for Fab’s AutoBackup 7 Single license version. Fab’s AutoBackup 7 Pro is 45eur for 1 year or 90eur for 3 years
