Cobian Backup

cobian_backup.jpg Cobian Backup is a open source Windows backup application/service that allows you to schedule backups of folders and/or files to either another place on the same computer, or another place on the network. It also supports FTP backup which is something that isn’t used usually in most backup utilities. Before backing it up, it can be sent in the original form, or it can be compressed. If compressed, it uses an encryption method that can be set to use strong encryption.
This application also is “green”. This means that it can be used on USB key drives due to the configurations being stored in ini files instead of the registry. With a whole bunch of other features from an open source applicaton, who needs anything else? Take a look. Try. If you like, support. Yes, it does support Vista.
