Backup4all can backup open/locked files (if the files are located on local partitions on Windows XP/2003/Vista/Windows 7/Windows 8/8.1/Windows 10) and it can perform smart, full, differential, incremental and mirror backups. When defining a backup you can also set file filters and schedule the backup for automatic execution. Once a backup is performed, in Explore View (F2) you can see what files have been changed since the last backup or in Statistics View (F3) you can read the statistics about the next backup execution. In Explore View, when you right click a file, you can use the context menu to run standard actions associated with the file type.
In Backup4all you can manually select which files and folders to be backed up. There is also the option to use backup plugins which will automatically pick the necesarily files for backup. There are some predefined plugins available in application: My Documents, My Pictures, Google Chome, Internet Explorer Favorites, Mozilla FireFox Profiles, Mozilla Thunderbird, Windows Live Mail or Outlook emails and settings. Users can create their own plugins using the Plugin Creator application.
Backup4all has ZIP64 support (can create backups over 2 GB) and creates standard zip files, meaning that you can access it with any zip compatible utility. Backup4all also allows you to encrypt your backup using AES encryption (128/192/256-bit).
Backup4all keeps track of file versions. You can easily restore any version of files or a whole folder. You can also filter the files to be restored by different criteria such as: type of the file, date, size or attributes.
Backup4all tests the backup files automatically to ensure the backup is safe and correctly executed (uses CRC32). You can also enable email notifications to receive an email in case of success/error/warning.
Backup4all works with any drive letter, including mapped network drives and UNC paths. It comes with its own built-in CD/DVD/Blu-ray burning support.
