I'm looking for simple (and preferably free) backup software that does the following:
* performs scheduled backup of changed (incremental) files in particular folders.
* Disk to disk transfer
* Disk over network transfer
I've been using Handy Backup and paid for the original version. However, they seem to want money to upgrade, although I seem to remember free upgrades as a selling point.
When you say disk to disk, do you mean imaging one drive to another like ghost?
SyncBack is a flexible, and quite powerful backup and synchronization program that allows to to maintain backup copies of your files and folder, or to synchronize them, so that both locations always have a complete copy (e.g Laptop/PC). It offers different types of actions that let you choose how older and newer files are processed, which files should be excluded (by mask) and more. It offers standard file comparison based on the date and size, as well as optional MD5 checksum, which will detect even the slightest modifications to files. SyncBack also supports scheduled projects, FTP and zip compression of backups, as well as network login, simulation runs and more.
SyncBack Freeware download and review - backup and synchronization tool from SnapFiles
I should have been more clear. This is simple file copy of files from one disk to another.
