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.
Cobian Backup exists in two different versions: application and
The program uses very few resources and can be running in the background on
your system, checking your backup schedule and executing your backups when
necessary. Cobian Backup is *not an usual backup application*: it only
copies your files and folders in original or compressed mode to another
destination, creating a security copy as a result. So Cobian Backup can be
better described as a *"Scheduler for security copies"*.
With Cobian Backup you can automatically backup your files once, daily,
weekly, monthly, or on a timer basis, *using compression or not*. *Incremental
and differential backups* are supported as well. You can also save and open
lists with different backup file sets.

It did slowdown my system a bit (significantly slow when the scheduled

2.8 gig with 512MB memory).
