Cobian Backup is a multi-threaded program that can be used to schedule and backup your files and directories from their original location to other directories/drives in the same computer or other computer in your network. FTP backup is also supported in both directions (download and upload).
Cobian Backup exists in two different versions: application and service. The program uses very few resources and can be running on the background on your system, checking your backup schedule and executing your backups when necessary. Cobian Backup is not an usual backup application: it only copies your files and folders in original or compressed mode to other destination, creating a security copy as a result. So Cobian Backup can be better described as a "Scheduler for security copies".
Cobian Backup supports several methods of compression and strong encryption.

XXCOPY is simply a logical extension to XCOPY.
It remains faithfully compatible with XCOPY in the invocation syntax, yet, adds
many innovative features to be a very serious utility for anyone who feels
comfortable in managing files in command line mode (DOS Box). XXCOPY has grown
to be not just a file copy program but also file removal, search and list
utility. Its short-name preserving capability makes it ideal to clone a system
disk which can be made bootable. XXCOPY runs under Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2K/XP and
comes with a 16-bit version XXCOPY16 which allows copying files in DOS
environment using short name only (to be later expanded to long name). You may
also use it for synchronizing systems. In short, it is an industrial strength
utility for system administrators

Backup Chunker is a backup / synchronization program with unique features: multiple synchronization and versatile compression with strong encryption.
The program is designed for both novice and advanced users.
It is easy to setup backup tasks. Can copy files between many types of storage: Hard disks, USB drives, burn CD/DVDs, MP3 players, internet backup services (using WebDAV), FTP & Secure FTP servers and more.
It has the ability either to synchronize files, or synchronize with "chunks" which are small to medium sized compressed and/or encrypted zip archives. This is a very unique feature of Backup Chunker; you can back up all your files to small to medium sized archives (using the common zip or 7-zip format) that are both compressed and encrypted. On each backup, only the new and modified files are re-compressed, and only the affected chunks changed.It
can handle many different scenarios, like synchronizing files between many computers and storage devices. For example you can sync your home computer with a USB stick (using compression and encryption), and then your USB stick to your work computer. This way you can keep your computers synchronized and also have a compressed & encrypted backup copy on your key chain!
Archive format used is the common zip or 7-zip that can be extracted if required with any simple file compression utility. - Industrial strength encryption (AES-256) that has no back doors. - Extremely fast synchronization of thousands of files, even to locations on a network or the internet.
Backup Chunker is Freeware. You can use Backup Chunker free of charge for as long as you want for simple synchronization tasks and burning to CD/DVDs. To use the more advanced features, you can buy the Professional Version.
