You can backup and synchronize your data within minutes. You have total
control of how your files are going to be synchronized. You can specify
what will happen to files that are newer,
identical or extra in your source folders and your target
folders, respectively. These files can either be
copied, deleted or disregarded, freely adjustable to your
own individual needs.
Thanks to File Backupper you will always have full access to all of your
latest data on all computers you use.
You will be able to work on the latest versions of all your files
anywhere you go and from any computer you use, even without any need of an
Here is a pdf for more information:
Define firstly one or
multiple source and target folders (Drag & Drop) you want to back up or to be
Next simulate to see what will happen to your files and
review and modify pending operations if necessary:
Here you see a list of the operations ( delete, copy, replace) that will be applied to listed files. The filestate ( newer, older, extra, identical) is also denoted.
Now you can delete lines from this ToDo list, you can open files to see what they are and how they e.g. differ from the other one or you can just let them show in the explorer:
It is possible to save or load such a ToDo list in order to use it several times or to use it to a later time.
After you've reviewed the output, you can execute
pending operations to back up your files.
Of course you can simulate and execute with one klick without looking at the output. For that just hold the ctrl button while hitting the execute button.
Besides the possibility to freely create a backup mode, there are two predefined modes you can select: the incremental backup and the synchronization backup mode.
Incremental Backup Mode
This is a strictly one way backup. Files in the source directories will not be changed or deleted.
- All files that are identical in source and target are disregarded and not
- A File that was created in source (Extra file in source) is copied to
- A File that was deleted in source (Extra file in target) is also deleted
- A File that was modified in source (Newer file in source) is replaced in
file in target)
- A File that was modified in target (Newer file in target) is disregarded
stays unmodified in target, but will not be copied to source.
Backup Mode: Synchronization
Here files can be copied both ways: from source to target and from target to source.
So the difference to the former discussed mode is that
- an older file in the source directory is replaced by a newer file from
the target directory.
Individual Backup Modes
The extraordinary property of the File Backupper is the full operational
freedom. You can freely select any operation ( delete, copy, replace) for a given filestate ( newer, older, extra, identical).
Include and Exclude Data
You can include and exclude data from your backup by specifying the file or folder name or by just dragging them into the textbox shown below.
