Backup tools are not in short supply, but simplicity isn’t always a word I’d use to describe some solutions. I make extensive use of rsync, but without a simple equivalent on windows (although DeltaCopy looks promising) it’s hard to backup consistently across many platforms. Having the backup storage mirror the files so you can easily navigate and restore a lost file is also important.
This tool isn’t very high on my list these days due to suitable alternatives.>
- Backup files to a local disk
- Backup files to a remote disk over FTP
- Backup files to a remote disk over SFTP
- Backup files allowing individual file transformations, i.e. zip, encryption
Initial version developed, but poorly designed file wrapper class means rewrite is necessary
