Maeve13 the download link on the website works for me.

Download link is dead; Archive.org has the site, but unable to download the zip folder. Lo4d and MajorGeeks both appear to have a copy, such as it is...

The interface is a bit of a challenge, not very intuitive. But you're rewarded by outstanding features that are hard to find elsewhere, such as:
- Existing Files only = to refresh a target
- one-click creation of batch-files for commandline
- a kind of fallback-mechanism - it can check for the existence of more than volume label + path, so you don't have to create multiple profiles for different targets that will hold the same backups

Zback copies Folder Properties, which most backup software does not, according to numerous tools I've tested. For that reason alone I can forgive the rather clunky UI. Love it :)

Download the manual (zmanual, not zguide) and checkout Example 25 from Appendices section.

On the homepage, the feature list includes: "can be used as front-end for cloud backup/ synchronize/ mirror (Google Drive)" ... yet the program and its help files make no mention of it??

I love this application ... I use it for backing up all my files ... it is very quick and much quicker than manual copy-paste by windows. I always use manual mode to preview the synchronization then running it.
