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 automatically 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 add 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 "full backup"), or exact copies of the original sources without any compression (using "mirror backup"). The best thing about this freeware backup software is that it protects your data for free.
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.
You define a backup job, set it to run automatically, and forget about it. FBackup will automatically run the backup at the scheduled date, so you have the benefits not only of having your data protected, but you'll also save precious time.
Backup with standard zip compression
When using "full backup", the sources will be archived using standard zip compression. FBackup uses ZIP64 compression, which means that it can create zip files over 2GB in size. Also, you can password protect your backup zip files.
I've tried many backup applications over the years. Cobian, Comodo to name a couple. Though those are very good, freeware solutions. I must admit that after trying FBackup, this one is the best I've ever used. It is also very powerful and unique as far as backup software is concerned.
Very useful piece of software for any user. Simple to use and easily backups your files and protects from corruption. I recommend this to anybody looking for a simple and easy to use software for backing up their important files. It's free so it means you don't pay for anything.
Have used this software both for back up and more importantly for restore. It worked as advertised. It was simple and worked well. It has saved me now twice when a bad motherboard took out the hard drives in raid mirror setup. I like the better package now due to the greater range of ability.
Easy to use and able to specify just what is to be backed up. I have it set up to do 7 different jobs, Videos, Documents, Music, Desktop, Outlook and Photos. Options of "zip, mirror and full" backup formats provide flexibility when capacity constraints are a factor.
A complete, easy to use, reliable and versatile backup application at last. I was impressed by FBackup after trying (and uninstalling) so many others. FBackup does all the things I want to be done, so it's here to stay. Recommended!
Amazingly full-featured for a free program. Broad capabilities, including all the 'standard' backup options, but with many more features that the competition holds out for paid upgrades only. It took awhile to find FBackup among all the tools out there, but it was worth the extra searching.
