Backup4all is an award-winning backup program for Windows. Backup4all protects your valuable data from partial or total loss by automating backup tasks, password protecting and compressing it to save storage space. Using Backup4all you can easily backup to any local or network drive, backup to FTP (with support for SSL encryption, proxy server, passive mode), backup to CD/DVD, or other removable media (such as USB drives).
Backup4all can backup open/locked files and it can perform full, differential, incremental and mirror backups. When defining a backup you can also set file filters and schedule the backup for automatic execution. Once a backup is performed, you can see what files have been changed since the last backup or you can read the statistics about the next backup execution. You can use the context menu from the tree to run standard actions associated with the file type.
You can run predefined backups, such as My Documents, My Pictures or Outlook Express and load backup plugins (full list www.backup4all.com/backup-plugins.php ).
Backup4all has ZIP64 support (can create backups over 2 GB) and creates standard zip files, meaning that you can access it with any zip compatible utility. Backup4all also allows you to encrypt your backup using AES Encryption (128/192/256-bit).
This backup program keeps track of file versions. You can easily restore any version of files or a whole folder. You can filter files to be restored.
Backup4all tests the backup files automatically to ensure the backup is safe and correctly executed (uses CRC32). You can also enable email notifications to receive an email in case of success/error/warning.
Backup4all works with any drive letter, including mapped network drives and UNC paths. It comes with its own built-in CD/DVD burning support. If you prefer, you can use UDF format.
Backup4all runs on 2000/2003/XP/Vista and offers multi language support.
Backup and restore wizards
Backup4all was designed to be an easy-to-use backup software. It comes with separate wizards for backing up and restoring. The backup wizard for example lets you create a new backup job by selecting Where, What, How and When to backup.
The Brief View and Getting Started window allows you to easily define/run backup jobs or restore backed up data. Switching to the Explore View, you can see all the files/folders that are in the backup job and the new files that will be stored at the next backup execution. You can sort and search the file tree in Explore view. You can start this backup application at windows startup or minimize it to the system tray.
NEW! Free backup plugins
You can load plugins for backing up or restoring specific programs' settings or other custom data (like game saves, email data, etc.). List of available plugins: Free Backup Plugins
Backup4all offers four backup types to choose from: full backup, differential backup, incremental backup and mirror backup. This lets you back up files with or without compressing them.
Easy File and Folder Selection
You can browse a folder tree to select several files and folders as source of the backup or you can include or exclude them individually. Multiple files/folders can be added as Sources at once (drag-and-drop supported).
You can configure Backup4all to send custom emails after a backup finished, with success, error and warning notifications. Additional options allow you to attach the backup log file and send the email to several addresses.
You can easily define a data backup job for My documents, My pictures or backup Outlook Express emails and settings from the predefined backups list.
Backup4all is a backup software that offers a unique mode to track file versions. You can selectively restore any previous version of a backed up file directly from the main window.
Data backup to DVD and CD
You do not need separate software to burn your backups to DVD or CD, because Backup4all comes with its own built-in CD/DVD burning engine. However, if you prefer, you can still use UDF format to burn your CDs/DVDs.
Standard Zip Compression
Backup4all creates standard zip files. This format is compatible with any zip utility currently available on the market. Unlike other backup softwares, for zip files greater than 2 Gbytes, Backup4all uses zip64 technology (which allows unlimited zip file size) and also let you encrypt the zip files using AES encryption (256-bits).
Backup open files
This backup software uses the Volume Shadow Copy service that allows you to back up open files (local) from NTFS partitions in Windows Vista, XP, 2003 and 2008 Server. For example you can backup Microsoft Outlook or Outlook Express emails and settings without closing them.
FTP Backup Software
You can keep an online backup of your data to a remote location using FTP connection (with SSL, active/passive transfer modes, firewall support).
NEW! Mirror with zip
The Mirror backup type creates an exact copy of the files and folders that are selected as sources. Now Backup4all gives you the option to compress each file individually (standard ZIP compression) so that you save storage space. Furthermore, AES encryption can be used so that each file is protected from unauthorized use.
