If you have ever encountered a corrupt file, accidentally deleted important files, or performed some irreversible action that you wish could be undone, then Backup might be just what you need. Surprisingly, most people don't backup their files on a regular basis - if at all. This tool is NOT intended to replace more powerful backup applications such as Microsoft Backup. Rather, it's job is to ensure that while busily working on a project you are reminded to backup work-in-progress, that you are able to do so quickly, and that it can be done without having to think too hard about it.

"I can't say enough good things about Backup, it's fast, absolutely reliable and well thought out - and just now it saved my butt." - Paul Fierlinger, independent animator since 1958.

Simplicity. Select a drive/folder to copy From, drive/folder to copy To, and define a Match Expression for files that should be backed up. That's it, you're ready to go. As you work away, click the Backup button whenever you want changed files to be backed up. Simple. Need a reminder from time to time? The automatic Reminder timer can be set to any number of minutes, and when times up... the Backup button starts flashing. Nothing too distracting, and certainly nothing to interrupt whatever you are doing at the time, but just enough to coax you into doing what you should be doing regularly... backing up your hard work! If an automated reminder is not to your liking, the Last Time Since Backup display will let you know, by the minute, how long it has been since the last backup.

-NEW- For even more safetey, in case your first backup harddrive should fail, a secondary To (drive/folder) is provided to allow you to backup files to two separate destinations at once.
