Simple Data Backup is free, easy and efficient backup software that creates non-proprietary backups. It can back up folders/files from one drive to another anytime you want on-demand (including with an optional direct shortcut on your desktop to run the backup), on a schedule, or at logon. Back up to another hard drive, network drive, flash drive, the 'cloud' (Internet server) via FTP, SSH, or WebDav, DVD (if packet-writing software is installed) and more. It can create identical folder/file structures on the backup drive, or can compress the data as .ZIP or LZMA-compressed .7z files. It can back up "in use" files (including Outlook data), monitor and alert you to any errors including potentially by email/SMS or reporting status to the web, and it automatically handles the whole full/incremental backup thing that other programs make you deal with. Simple Data Backup is powerful, stable, and secure, but also simple - just pick the folders you want to be backed up and a few settings and you're done!

With over a decade of development behind it, Simple Data Backup is trusted and stable.
Contains NO spyware, adware, viruses, or malware of any kind.
