For what OS?

Many OS versions already have a backup tool included.

Also, you can get errors with any backup tool. If you get such errors you should check that tool's log and find out what the cause of the problem was, and then find a solution to that particular problem. Those problems are usually not caused by the backup tool, but rather a different issue can cause it.

If you are using Windows and for some reason don't want to use the built-in tool, I recommend Paragon's backup tools. They are cheaper than those of comparable manufacturers and are still very good (for Desktop PC OS's and home use they even have a free version). If you need something higher-end, then Storage-Crafts shadowprotect is probably the best around:

Remember that if you are backing up a server you will usually have to buy a more expensive product which is built for servers (desktop products normally won't install) or use the built-in tool.

If you don't need an image based backup tool, then the free Cobian Backup is very good:

Go for Acronis. It is a nice tool with much functionality
If you are searching for Windows, then go for "Symanted Backup Exex"... It is very good and user friendly.
