In the software market, there are tons of tools / Apps either paid or free for backing up your files, folders and drives etc. Each one of them got its own advantages and disadvantages. I was just surfing through internet as usual and found something pretty good enough for a backup solution with no price tag. Its SyncBack free version. I was amazed by loads of configuration options it had for different backing up situations.
SyncBack is a freeware program that helps you easily backup and synchronize your files to
- the same drive;
- a different drive or medium (CDRW, CompactFlash, etc);
- an FTP server;
- a Network; or
- a Zip archive.
Highly configurable, SyncBack includes:
- detailed, easy to read log files;
- email results;
- simulated backups and restore;
- file filters; sub-directory selection;
- copy verification;
- background backups;
- auto-close of programs;
- easy and expert modes;
- profile groups;
- compare files, and
- an extensive context sensitive help file.
This Freeversion includes options for compression and FTP server direct upload. Thats more than enough for free version.
