Cross-platform (Java) with clients available for Mac and Linux. Alternatively, a WinPenPack version is also available.

Although I've been more focused on Bvckup 2 for Windows (due to the delta copy feature), DirSync Pro comes in handy on occasions and is far and away my favorite sync program on Mac.

@webfork
I also like and use DirSync Pro- it is packed with features and has a great preview (Analyze).

Back4Sure v3.7.2 Updated

billon on 10 Jun 2016
  • 6MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 9 Jun 2016
  • Suggested by guinness

Back4Sure is a feature-rich backup solution for typical backup use. The program can make a backup to hard-disk, USB drive or network and can also be compressed using high or low compression settings to a ZIP or 7-zip file of various compression levels, as well as encrypted for security.

Other features include filters to backup or exclude specific file types, a cleanup mode to remove old archives, and creation of one or multiple zip files (separated by directory structure). Backups are saved by directory structure either inside the archive or inside the directory for easy restoring. Users can also use multiple settings profiles, or "job" files.

Technomancer: if you mean the entry is unclear, please let us know in forums. If you mean the program itself (and for the RAR distro issue) you might want to contact the developer directly.

what you should know:
Cleanup is optional - it is very close related to an incremental backup.
Using this you have to select the same Target Directory as before to backup only changed files and to delete files on the backup that have been deleted on the original file system as well (the latter one is the actual Cleanup).

Hope it helps ;)

It's a crying shame that you can only backup folders with this tool, and not individual files within those folders (yes, I know you can set filters, but unless you know in advance what files you want from each folder, this is not practical to use).

thanks guys :)

The 64 bit zip file is misnamed on the server. There is a space between 64 and .zip, so the functioning link will be http://tp.lc.ehu.es/anonym/win95/drcmp350-64 .zip (Or the author can correct the naming error)
