Smart Backup Type

Backup4all employs a unique system that decides automatically what backup type to use in order to save the most file versions (within the same allotted storage space) on your destination and improve the backup speed. Using the smart backup option you optimize the backup process and reduce decision time as you don't have to compare various backup types to chose what's more suitable.

Online Backups to Amazon S3 or Microsoft Azure

With Backup4all you can back-up your data online to Amazon S3 or Microsoft Azure. This way you benefit from the most powerful infrastructures for protecting online data, while using the backup program you're used to.

Backup and Restore Wizards

Backup4all was designed to be an easy-to-use backup program. It offers helpful wizards for backing up and restoring. The backup wizard lets you create a new backup job by selecting Where, What, How and When to backup. Restore is even easier, it takes just one click to restore data.

Free Backup Plugins

You can load plugins for backing up or restoring specific programs' settings or other custom data (like game saves, email data, etc.). List of available plugins: Free Backup Plugins

Intuitive Ribbon Interface

Backup4all has a ribbon interface for quick access to the most important options. The Getting Started window allows you to easily define/run backup jobs or restore data. Switching to Explore View you can see all files/folders that are in the backup job and the new files that will be stored at the next backup execution.

Highly Configurable

Backup4all offers four backup types to choose from: full backup, differential backup, incremental backup and mirror backup. By default it uses a smart backup option to automatically chose which backup type to execute for optimizing backup speed and keep the most file versions possible without exceeding the allotted storage space.

SFTP Backup Software

Backup4all can backup to SFTP, a destination combining the security of remotely stored backups, with secure file transfer protocol. Your important data is transferred to the SFTP backup server using a secure network connection, to avoid the risk of data interception.

Email Notifications

You can configure Backup4all to send custom emails after a backup finished, with success, error and warning notifications. Additional options allow you to attach the backup log file and send the email to several addresses.

Mirror with Zip

The Mirror backup type creates by default an exact copy of files and folders selected as sources. This backup software gives you the option to compress files individually using standard ZIP compression. Furthermore, AES encryption can be used so that each file is encrypted and protected (the file/folder names are obfuscated in the zip archive).

Block-level Backup

Block-level backup speeds up the backup process of large files as it only back-up the modified blocks of data instead of the entire file. As an example, if you have a backup job for a large Outlook profile, whenever you receive a new email Backup4all knows to back-up only the bits of data that modified rather than the whole PST.

Version Tracking

Backup4all is a backup software that offers an unique mode to track file versions. You can selectively restore any previous version of a file directly from the main window.

Data backup to DVD, CD and Blu-ray

Backup4all comes with its own built-in DVD/CD/Blu-ray disc burning engine. This means you don't need separate software to burn your backups to DVD, CD, HD-DVD or Blu-ray. However, if you prefer, you can still use 3rd party packet writing software to burn your CDs/DVDs/Blu-ray discs.

Standard Zip Compression

Backup4all creates standard zip files. This format is compatible with any zip utility currently available on the market. Unlike other backup programs, for zip files greater than 2 GB, Backup4all uses ZIP64 technology. This allows unlimited zip file size and also lets you encrypt your data using AES encryption (256-bits).

Backup open files

This backup software uses the Volume Shadow Copy service. It allows you to back up open files (local) from NTFS partitions in Windows Vista, XP, 2003, 2008 Server and Windows 7. For example, you can backup Microsoft Outlook or Outlook Express emails and settings without closing them.

FTP Backup Software

You can keep an online backup of your data to a remote location using FTP connection (with SSL, active/passive transfer modes, firewall support).

Notifications

Backup4all shows messages when certain actions occur (i.e. when finishing a backup). These notifications can be shown in a pop-up window or be silently saved in the Messages panel.

Predefined backups

Predefined backups, such as Backup4all Configurations, Google Chrome Bookmarks & Profiles, Internet Explorer Favorites, Mozilla Firefox Profiles, My Documents, My Pictures or Windows Live Mail, make it easier to back-up specific applications or data. Additionally, other backup plugins can be freely installed from our extensive online library.

Automatic backups

Using Backup4all's built-in scheduler you can define backup jobs that back up automatically your important files at specific dates. You can also set extra actions to perform before and/or after the backup execution. Backup4all has also a command line version.
