Publisher's Description:

ZipBackup - ZipBackup is an easy, yet powerful tool for backing up your data to standard Zip files on CDs, DVDs, a hard drive, floppy disks, or over a network. ZipBackup even spans multiple disks automatically. ZipBackup's Wizard makes backups a snap for beginners, and advanced filtering and scheduling make it a powerful tool for experts.

You know you should protect your computer from viruses, worms, and other net nasties, but being careful is not enough. You need to protect your valuable data in case something goes wrong. ZipBackup is the easiest way to protect your data.

ZipBackup’s Wizard will take you through a simple step by step process to protect all your data. For even more control of your backups, ZipBackup’s Explorer will allow you to quickly select files and folders to backup with a full range of filters and options. ZipBackup even allows you to create Incremental and Differential backups so you only need to backup files that have changed.

Most backup programs store your data in a proprietary format. This means if you loose your original backup program you are out of luck. ZipBackup stores your files in standard Zip format – the most common type of compressed folder. If you ever need to restore your data, you can use ZipBackup or any program that can read standard Zip files. In fact, Windows XP can restore your data with no other software necessary.

ZipBackup’s new Smart Copy and Restore technology automatically restores files to the proper location, even if you are restoring to another computer or a different version of Windows.

We are so confidant you will like ZipBackup, we invite you to try it free for 30 days. You won't want to use a computer without it.

Fast and easy

Zipbackup is easy to use, is reasonably fast, and accomplishes its mission without error.

The interface is complete as far as it goes. It is easy to select top-level folders for backup and to schedule jobs.

The product is quite a bit more capable than the documentation suggests. For example, a "job" is just a rather well-thought-out text file with simple sections in the manner of the old "INI" files. The interface won't let you drill down below a top-level folder (at least, on Vista Ultimate), but this is easily overcome: create a "job" by selecting anything you like from the choices offered, then save it. Next, edit it with Wordpad. It's perfectly obvious how to do that, and you can specifiy folders and files to any level.

I got into the zip backup game after going to Vista. Vista removes the friendly old NTBACKUP, which was a kludge, but reliable and not hard to use. The replacement is a poor-to-fair incremental backup system based on zip files. I am still learning how much to rely on that thing and I lacked NTBACKUP, so the next best thing was one of the umpteen thousand zip file products out there. After evaluating several, ZipBackup won.

Just as I did with NTBACKUP, I schedule Zipbackup to run every day at 3:00 AM. It takes a full backup of everything I care about to an external hard drive, clobbering the backup taken yesterday. Therefore I have 24 hours to burn a daily off to DVD. If I don't get around to it, there's not a lot of risk.

I never back up the OS, commercial programs, etc. I can always reinstall the OS and reinstall all the programs and tools I use. I do that about every 6 months anyway because Windows is awful about flushing the toilet. After 6 months or so, it gets gummed up with junk, no matter how many cleaners and scrubbers and things you use.

What I back up are files I can't recover any other way. My correspondance, finanacial records, etc.

ZipBackup goes in my toolbox as a welcome addition.
