Backup4all was designed to be an easy-to-use backup program. It offers helpful wizards for backing up and restoring. The backup wizard lets you create a new backup job by selecting Where, What, How andWhen to backup. Restore is even easier, it takes just one click to restore data.
Free backup plugins
You can load plugins for backing up or restoring specific programs’ settings or other custom data (like game saves, email data, etc.). List of available plugins: Free Backup Plugins
The Brief View and Getting Started windows allow you to easily define/run backup jobs or restore data. Switching to Explore View you can see all 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 program at Windows startup or minimize it to the system tray.
Backup4all offers four backup types to choose from: full backup, differential backup, incremental backup and mirror backup. This lets you back up files with or without compressing them.
SFTP backup software
Backup4all can backup to SFTP, a destination combining the security of remotely stored backups, with secure file transfer protocol. Your important data is transferred to the SFTP backup server using a secure network connection, to avoid the risk of data interception.
You can configure Backup4all to send custom emails after a backup finished, with success, error and warning notifications. Additional options allow you to attach the backup log file and send the email to several addresses.
Mirror with zip
The Mirror backup type creates an exact copy of files and folders selected as sources. This backup software gives you the option to compress files individually. Using standard ZIP compression it means that you save storage space. Furthermore, AES encryption can be used so that each file is encrypted and protected.
Backup4all is a backup software that offers an unique mode to track file versions. You can selectively restore any previous version of a file directly from the main window.
Data backup to DVD, CD and Blu-ray
Backup4all comes with its own built-in DVD/CD/Blu-ray disc burning engine. This means you don’t need separate software to burn your backups to DVD, CD, HD-DVD or Blu-ray. However, if you prefer, you can still use 3rd party packet writing software to burn your CDs/DVDs/Blu-ray discs.
Standard Zip Compression
Backup4all creates standard zip files. This format is compatible with any zip utility currently available on the market. Unlike other backup softwares, for zip files greater than 2 GB, Backup4all uses ZIP64 technology. This allows unlimited zip file size and also lets you encrypt your data using AES encryption (256-bits).
Backup open files
This backup software uses the Volume Shadow Copy service. It allows you to back up open files (local) from NTFS partitions in Windows Vista, XP, 2003, 2008 Server and Windows 7. For example, you can backup Microsoft Outlook or Outlook Express emails and settings without closing them.
FTP Backup Software
You can keep an online backup of your data to a remote location using FTP connection (with SSL, active/passive transfer modes, firewall support).
Predefined backups, such as My Documents, My Pictures, Outlook Express, Microsoft Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird or IE Favorites, make it easier to back-up specific applications or data. Additionally, other backup plugins can be freely installed from our extensive online library.
Using Backup4all’s built-in scheduler you can define backup jobs that back up automatically your important files at specific dates. You can also set extra actions to perform before and/or after the backup execution. Backup4all has also a command line version.
Save time by automating your backups
To ensure your data is safe simply schedule Backup4all to run backups automatically. You’ll have an unattended backup solution in place and save precious time by not having to manually back-up your data.
Save money paying only for the features you need
There are different editions of Backup4all, each suitable for a different category of users (novice, advanced, expert). This will save you money since you buy the edition that you need paying only for the features that you’ll actually use.
Your data is safe with Backup4all
It’s a well known fact that hard drives fail, only a matter of time until they do crash. Would your business survive if you would lose all your data? What about all those precious personal photos of your children growing up? If you start backing up your data with Backup4all you’ll avoid such risks.
Universality by using a standard zip format
Other backup programs will keep the resulting backup files in a proprietary format. By doing this you’ll be able to restore your data only if you have their backup program installed. We respect our users and don’t try to trick them. This is why Backup4all creates standard zip files and uses a backup catalog to keep track of new/modified files. This ensures compatibility with any other backup program or zip utility.
Free support for every user
All Backup4all users are entitled to free email support even if you are using the free 30 day trial version. Installing the free trial version and having your questions answered by our support team will allow you to evaluate the program thoroughly before deciding to purchase it.
Automatic free updates
You can configure this backup software to check for updates manually or automatically at a scheduled date. This way you’ll be able to keep your program up-to-date without hassles. All minor updates are free of charge, so you don’t have to pay when a new minor version is released.
