We @ Tweakbytes.com are very pleased to announce our Backup4all Lite v7.2.349 Mother's Day 2018 Giveaway! We would like to thank Softland SRL for sponsoring this giveaway Overview Backup4all is an award-winning data backup software for Windows. This backup utility was designed to protect your valuable data from partial or total loss by automating backup tasks, password protecting and compressing it to save storage space. This backup application is feature rich and offers an intuitive interface making all features easily accessible for both beginners and professionals. With Backup4all you can easily backup to multiple destinations: Local - back-up to DVD, CD, Blu-ray, HD-DVD, or other removable media (such as USB drives). Network - back-up to network destinations (including mapped network drives) Using the wizard you can easily set up any backup configurations you wish. You can define powerful file filters and schedule your backups any way you want. Once a backup is performed, you can see what files changed since the last backup using the explorer-like tree view or you can read the statistics about the next backup execution. With many other backup software programs, files that are in use during the backup may not get backed up successfully because they are locked to prevent programs from modifying the data. With Backup4all you can back-up open or locked files such as databases, MS Outlook personal folder (.pst), Outlook Express mail archives (dbx files) and others. When defining a backup, there is also the option to run predefined backups, such as My Documents, My Pictures or other custom folder. You can opt to receive backup status updates via email on success, warning, error. This backup application has ZIP64 support (can create backups over 4GB) and creates standard zip files, meaning that you can access it with any zip compatible utility. It comes with its own built-in CD, DVD and Blu-ray burning support so you can easily backup to DVD, CD, Blu-ray or HD-DVD. Just set the destination to DVD, CD, Blu-ray or HD-DVD and execute the backup job. However, if you prefer, you can use the UDF format. Backup4all is compatible with Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista, XP, Windows Server 2012, and 2008 Server/2003 Server and requires approximately 50MB of free disk space. Backup4all comes in three editions: Lite, Standard and Professional. There is also a special version which is Backup4all Portable which is a version that can only be installed on portable USB/Firewire devices. Compare Backup4all Editions HERE Features: Intuitive Interface 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. Backup locked or open files Backup4all uses the Volume Shadow Copy service that allows you to back up local open files from NTFS partitions. Now you can backup your emails and settings without closing Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express or other email clients. File and Folder Filters Powerful file and folder filtering engine with lots of options to filter by attribute, size, date, name and type). You can create filters using a combination of restrictions and you can define separate filters for inclusion and exclusion. Backup directly to CD, DVD, Blu-ray This backup software comes with its own built-in CD, DVD, HD-DVD and Blu-ray burning support. Just set the destination to the CD, DVD, HD-DVD or Blu-ray disc and execute the backup job. However, if you prefer not to use Backup4all's built-in burning engine, you can use 3rd party packet writing software (such as DirectCD or InCD). Backup4all also has the possibility to erase CD-RW/DVD-RW/HD DVD-RW/BD-RE media. Built-in Scheduler You can easily setup a powerful scheduler using the available scheduler configurations to make unattended backups. Backups can also be scheduled to run when the computer shuts down. Manage multiple backup jobs This backup software allows defining multiple backup jobs and saving them for future use. On the main form, you have an overview of all defined backups organized in groups. Backup4all comes with several predefined backup jobs: "My Documents", "My Pictures", "Outlook Express", "Mozilla Firefox", "Mozilla Thunderbird", "IE Favorites", "Backup4all configurations" and allows importing backup plugins for dozens of other applications. Pause/Resume or Stop operation The backup operation now supports pausing and resuming, so running a backup job can be interrupted and continued at a later time. There is also a Stop operation now, that when pressed will not Cancel the backup, but instead will save everything until that point when it was pressed. Automatic updates Backup4all can now check for updates either manually or automatically at a scheduled date. This allows you to better stay in touch with the latest development of Backup4all. Backup catalog file Backup4all stores a summary snapshot of the file and folder information into a backup catalog file (".bkc") each time a backup is executed. This catalog is stored in a different file than the backup itself and it allows Backup4all to keep track of the backed up files. The advantage of using a catalog is faster backup execution. Another advantage is that you can run Backup4all together with other backup applications because they will not interfere with each other. Extra Actions Perform extra actions before and/or after backup execution. Statistics You can actually see the number of files that will be processed at next backup (very useful when you have a large number of files). Other information refers to the size and date of the executed backups and the available free space on storage destination. New Backup Wizard This backup software provides step-by-step instructions to create a new backup job by selecting Where, What, How and When to backup. 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). Standard Zip Compression and zip64 support If the zip file size is less than 2 Gbytes, Backup4all creates standard zip files. This format is compatible with any zip utility available on the market. Unlike other backup software, for zip files greater than 2 Gbytes, Backup4all uses zip64 technology (which allows unlimited zip file size). Backup Plugins Starting with version 3.10 is possible to load plugins to backup/restore the settings of specific programs. A plugin is actually an XML file that once imported in Backup4all adds a predefined backup. For instance, a backup plugin for Mozilla Firefox, when loaded, will automatically add in the Predefined Backup list an entry for Firefox, so when defining a new backup job if that’s selected, the Firefox profiles will be added as source for the new backup.
