APBackup 3.8.5980 | 7.3 Mb
APBackup is an automatic backup tool that allows you to back up your data to local or network drives, FTP or LAN. The backup files can be stored uncompressed or in standard Zip format, with additional support for other compression formats (using plug-ins).
Here is what Scott Swedorski, the founder of Tucows.Com, said about APBackup: "It is very rare that I see a company put so much effort into teaching a user how to use their software. It was extremely easy to learn what APBackUp does and how to use it. I really pushed this application hard over the past few days and it always worked as it should."
While very straightforward, APBackUp has all the features any PC user, whether a novice or a pro, might need. These include support for all storage media types (floppy, hard drive, network disk, DVD, CD-R/W, FTP or LAN), plug-in support for any type of data compression method beyond Zip (WinRar, ARJ or JAR), file/folder synchronization options and a brainlessly simple task scheduler.
In addition, APBackUp offers several extremely handy features that most other backup software developers seem to overlook - like backing up files that are open and in use, e-mail notification for backup results, incremental backup, multiple backup file versions or an option to run the program as a network service. Plus, APBackUp can back up multiple PCs and store that data in one place - a very convenient solution for small businesses and home offices.
Backup files can be stored in standard Zip (Zip64 for archives greater than 4GB) format.
Strong encryption (AES 128, 192, 256 bit).
Plug-ins allow creation of archives in ANY other format (WinRar, ARJ, JAR, etc.)
Also allows copying folders without compression (synchronization).
Supports inclusion and exclusion of files by wildcard mask as well as by exact file name.
Supports backup of in-use and open files.
Provides detailed logs of all backup operations.
Intuitive user interface for beginners and advanced options for experts.
Has its own scheduler supporting unattended auto-backup and scheduling of any specific time or date, day of the week or month.
Allows creation of incremental backups so you only need to backup files that have changed.
Supports FTP, FTPS (FTP over SSL/TLS), all types of LAN and UNC file path names (network folders).
Auto-create filenames for every backup. Set a maximum backup versions number. (The oldest backup versions will be deleted.)
Protect backup files with a password.
Notify a user through email when backup operations have finished.
Store multiple folders (even from different computers) in one archive.
Store a prepared archive in 3 additional folders.
Start external applications before or after task execution.
Flexible performance tuning.
Can be used as a Windows NT/2000/XP service
Source folders can be monitored, so tasks can be automatically started after a source folder has changed.
