Hey Guys,

Been asked by a relative, for an easy to use backup program that doesn't take much to set up and operate. Needs to be able to do incremental backups, would normally use synctoy but in this case the backups need to be encrypted.

Preferably free or nice and cheap.

Thanks

I have installed number four from the link Sweep posted many times, never failed and easy to use.

FBackup, fully automated - it is really set and forget.

One great thing, it doesn't backup in a special format like many others do, that can only be read/opened by the same program. It will back up to a zipped file that can be opened on any PC if needed, password protected / encrypted if required.

Whenever I try to download FBackup ESET blocks it. Hmmm Thats odd, My Eset doesn't block it ?? Here is a Direct Link (http://www.fbackup.com/download/setup/fbsetup.exe)11.8Mb

OR From the Home page (http://www.fbackup.com/) - the download on the left gives several places to download from / Download Mirrors.

Is your nod32 right upto date, an older version may be detecting it as a false positive. The latest version as of 10.00am Sunday is 4.0.467.0 Def 4608

FBackup looks like it will do the job rather nicely. Thanks for your help guys.
