back up your important files and folders Back4Sure is a simple backup program that allows you to backup all your important files and folders. The program performs incremental backups, so only new or changed files will be copies to the backup location. You can select the folders to be included in the backup with simple check boxes and also choose to include or exclude files based on their extension, age and size. The backups can optionally be stored in compressed format (.zip or .7z). Other features include a cleanup option that will remove obsolete files from your backup set and detailed logging of backup operations. Back4Sure does not come with a built-in scheduling feature but allows you to create shortcuts on the desktop that will automatically run a backup when clicked (or you can used Windows Task Manager to schedule them). The program is free but shows a nag screen every 10 days that asks for a donation. Copyright

Pound for pound, amazing 4 stars by paul1149 Dec 13, 2010 (Read all my 13 reviews)
Coming in at under 2Mb, this is an amazingly tightly-written, feature-rich program. It does what it does well, and has many surprisingly advanced options. I would suggest making a small test backup job and playing with the program to see what the options will do. My problem is that, as good as this program is, it doesn't hit the bases I need hit. I need differential backup, and the program`s Cleanup function is not a substitute. I need each file zipped individually, with customizable splitting, for ease of Cloud access. This is the rare case where I`d like to see some more weight added to the program, in order to get these features. But with them or without them, this is an impressive offering. The program that sets out to do all that I want is GFI Backup. The problem is that I have been onset with a continuing rash of bugs that deem the program unreliable. Otherwise I wouldn`t be looking for a replacement. show Review details
Very good 4 stars by madmik Dec 05, 2010 (Read all my 32 reviews)
Fast and accurate whilst easy to setup. Suggest a restore feature wouldn`t be difficult to incorporate,to save copying and pasting. Apart from this omission, certainly recommended show Review details
Excellent, neat program... does the job 5 stars by Larches Aug 29, 2010
I've been hunting for a backup program for a while which is easy to use, AND reliable, AND isn't too much of a resource hog. I think I may have found it. Back4Sure seems well written (excellent English by the way), with clear instructions and an easy-to-use interface. The feature set is good - OK it may not have everything (e.g. shadow copy? versioned copies?) but the basic backup functions are quick and efficient and seem to work a treat. show Review details
