This utility is a simple and effective solution to backup your important data. It is an excellent way to protect your files from any damage (virus infection, disk crash, system failure, etc). Set up automatic backups!
Once backup tasks are set up, you can make backups with a single mouse click or automatically. You will find this program incredibly suitable regardless of whether you are a beginner or an advanced computer user.
Backing up your files means making a copy of your files for safekeeping. This is done in case the original files become unusable due to loss or damaged. These copies can be used to restore the original data in the event of loss. Copies should be stored on a different device from the original files. For example, you may use a USB drive, an external hard drive, a remote computer, or an off-site backup service. The best way to back up up your files is to do so regularly, keeping the copies off-site and encrypted.
Exiland backups has built-in scheduler, that allows you to run a task at a specified time. If the task is not scheduled, it can be run manually only by clicking the "Run" button.
The Exiland Backup utility supports four methods of backing up data: full backup, differential backup, incremental backup and synchronization data. A type of backup defines how the data is copied from the source to the destination. With this four backup types you can select the best backup and restore strategy for any kind of your data according to your requirements.
Exiland Backup creates a FULL backup every time. FULL backup contains all the files that are selected to be backed up. If no files have been modified since the last backup, it will not be created. To restore data from a full backup, you must have the most recent backup available.
Exiland Backup will create a FULL backup on the first run. Incremental backup stores all files that have changed since the last FULL or Incremental backup. To restore data from an Incremental backup, you must have the most recent FULL backup and each subsequent incremental backup set available.
Exiland Backup will create a FULL backup on the first run. Differential backup contains all files that have changed since the last FULL backup. To restore data from a Differential backup, you must have the most recent FULL and Differential backups available.
Synchronization data is a mirror backup. It is most frequently used to create an exact copy of the source data. If source files are added, changed, or deleted, all changes will be reflected in the destination folder.
Source files may be located on the Local / Network drives, flash drives, removable disks, or remote FTP servers. If source data are located on an FTP, you must specify the FTP settings to connect to FTP server.
For each source folder you can specify the following properties (filters):
There are several methods of starting a backup task:
To run a backup task automatically on schedule, on starting the PC, on shutting down the PC, or on connecting a removable device you must specify the schedule in the task properties.
Source files may be located on the following drives:
If source data are located on an FTP, you must specify the FTP settings to connect to FTP server.
Exiland Backup allows you to store backups in a several locations. The first folder is the main and the other folders are duplication.
Your can store backups in the following locations:
It is recommended to store your backups somewhere separate from your computer - on an external hard disk or on a remote servers. That way, if your computer breaks, the backup will still be intact. For maximum security, you shouldn't keep the backup in the same building as your computer. If there is a fire or theft, both copies of the data could be lost if they are located together.
For reliability purposes, it is recommended to duplicate your backups to another computer in local network or remote FTP server.
If you use ZIP compression you can set the sending a created backup via e-mail as an attachment.
Exiland Backup allows you to specify the template for the names of your backups so that the names of the created backups depend on the creation date and time. The template may contain the following variables [YYYY], [DD], [MM], [hh], [mm], [ss], and other.
It is recommended to specify the year, month, day, hour, and minutes. By default, this offers the most optimal template that guarantees unique backups names and provides the right order of the backups by name.
All actions are logged during a task execution. In the "Notification" section, you can specify e-mail where a report for a task will be sent. If you use ZIP compression you can set the sending a created backup via e-mail as an attachment.
Exiland Backup can create backups with compression in standard Zip format or copy files "As Is" (without compression). The program can create zip files larger than 4Gb, Zip64 format is supported. Password protection to keep your files private. AES encryption supported (128-bit, 192-bit, and 256-bit key strengths), splitting large ZIP archive into multiple volumes.
You can set the number of backups to be kept (after the number is reached, older backups are deleted). This allows you to save your disk space. For example, if this limitation value is set 10, then most old backups will be deleted before creating a new backup.
If you are using the Incremental/Differential backup type, then during the deletion an old full backup of the Incremental/Differential backups created after it are also deleted.
You can launch third-party applications before or after making backups. For this, you must enter a command to be executed, for example: D:\bin\MyApplication.exe. You can also specify the waiting settings for this Command line.
After creating a backup, you can view files into a backup, list of skipped files as well as the reason for any failed copying of each file. You can views the folders in the backup just as you view folders and files in Windows Explorer or a file manager.
You can quickly and easily restore the lost files from a backup to the specified folder or to their source location.
All backup operations are logged during a task execution. A report contains all the steps of a task performing, errors, warnings, and other messages. Errors are red, warnings are blue.
The tip appears when running a task. This tip is in the System Tray and shows the progress of a task executing. You can specify the method of display of the tip in the common settings of the program if needed.
All actions are logged during a task execution. Furthermore, you can specify where a report for each task/group will be sent:
You may use each type of notification independently.
