Cobian Backup is a multi-threaded program that can be used to schedule and backup your files and directories from their original location to other directories/drives in the same computer or other computer in your network. FTP backup is also supported in both directions.
With Cobian Backup you can automatically backup your files once, daily, weekly, monthly, yearly or on a timer basis, using compression or not. Incremental and differential backups are supported as well. You can also save and open lists with different backup file sets.
The program creates a log file which optionally can be mailed to you automatically.
Cobian Backup 9 has integrated compression capabilities, using the standard Zip algorithm and Zip64 or 7zip for large archives. All the functions in the program can optionally be password protected and the backup files can be encrypted using one of the following methods :
RSA (1024-256-bit), Blowfish (128-bit), Rijndael (128-bit) or DES (64-bit)
When a folder is copied, you can specify a list with files to exclude from the backup. You can also specify an event to occur before a backup starts (for example, close a program) and an event after the backup ends (example, start the same program). This can be useful if you need to backup some file that is in use by another application.
