AutoBackup is the ultimate no-frills backup software. Just create a list of paths to be checked, and a backup mirrored copy is created every day of all files found in those paths which have been modified since the last backup.

Briefcase Plus

Briefcase Plus is not really a backup program but it can be used as one. Briefcase Plus is similar to the Briefcase utility that comes with Windows, but much more powerful -- with automatic incremental copy features and compression. The briefcase contents are so well compressed, so that briefcases can hold up to 5 times as much data.

Cobian Backup

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).


Comparator provides folder mirroring and data synchronization (again similar to Windows briefcase) optimized for use on a single computer (not across a slow network). Comparator has strong data backup and data restoration features but it requires quite a bit of user interaction (which might be a good thing if you have complex backup tasks.)

IDrive-E Basic

IDrive-E Basic offers 2GB of free online backup space without any backup and restore restrictions or bandwidth limits or file type restrictions. Get 2GB of backup space absolutely free without any catch. Store your photos, media files or other important documents. Best suited for individuals and families.


Mozy is a simple, smart, and economic way to protect your data. You simply install it on your computer, set it up, and then never worry about data loss again.


TaskZip is a great little backup tool which runs as a system agent. It will automatically archive specified files and folders into a single ZIP file (although ZIP-64 is not supported so don't try to backup huge folders).


Unison is a file-synchronization tool for Unix and Windows. It allows two replicas of a collection of files and directories to be stored on different hosts (or different disks on the same host), modified separately, and then brought up to date by propagating the changes in each replica to the other.
