FBackup has a simple interface and guides you through the process of defining a backup job using a friendly wizard that asks you:
* Where do you want to store the backup (the destination).
* What do you want to backup (the sources).
* How do you want to run the backup (using full backup that zips the files, or mirror backup that doesn't zip them).
* When do you want to run the backup (you can schedule it to run autmatically or run it manually).
Once a backup job is defined you can run it manually by pressing the Backup button (or F6), or if you added a scheduler it will run automatically. FBackup can easily back up sources from local drives (including USB connected drives) to destinations such as USB/Firewire connected devices or mapped network locations. It creates either standard zip files (when using the full backup type), or exact copies of the original sources without any compression (using the mirror backup type). The best thing about this freeware backup software is that it protects your data for free.
It's free for personal and commercial purposes.
FBackup is a backup software free for both commercial and personal use. This means that you can save some money by not having to buy another backup program.
