Program name: Freebyte Backup
Program description: a freeware backup program for Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP. It allows one to easily copy (and filter) a large number of files and directories from various sources into one backup directory.It is possible to backup all files found in the specified set of input directories, or to have only certain file types copied. Files can be filtered according to file-extensions. E.g. you can specify that you want to backup all .doc, .rtf, .jpg, .bmp files, but none of the .exe, .dll and .txt files. You can very easily define new file extensions yourself to be added to the filter.
With the optional 'Incremental backup' feature, the program only copies files which have not yet been saved by Freebyte Backup.
It is also possible to specify a date, so that only files changes/created after a certain date/time are copied, or to only copy files if they are more recent than the corresponding files at the target location.
The detailed report screen shows a list of all the files which are part of the backup process. Of each file, one can see if the file is actually copied or if it is skipped. One can also see the file size, the file date, the source and target locations, the total number of files copied, and the total number of bytes copied.
The file list in the report report screen can be sorted according to file status ('copied' or 'skipped'), file name, file date, target location, etc.
You don't have to use profiles with FB Backup, but it can make life easier when you are working with several sets of data which need to be backed up at different times.
A profile within FB Backup consists of all the backup input directories specified, the backup output directory, and the filter settings. Profiles can be created, loaded from file, saved to file.
Supported platforms: Windows 95, 98, ME, NT 4.0., 2000, XP
