AutoVer is a highly configurable automatic or real-time backup and personal versioning system. The program can be used as a simple copy/sync tool or as a more complex, transparent version control system (like a realtime incremental backup) where every time you save a file it is copied to your backup folder, drive or FTP server. Supports filters, compression and more.

Great for backing up/synchronizing your work or home documents to flash memory or saving every change you make to your text, source code, images etc.

Supports 64-bit.

@webfork, which issue? The empty directories or the ProgramData folder? I have 3 laptops running Win 10, 64bit and it's done the same on them all.

webfork on 2019-09-02 22:46

@hamasaki: the ProgramData issue. I'll add a note to the entry.

hamasaki on 2019-09-03 07:32

@webfork: No problem.

Nothing to see here. There are far better, completely freeware text editors out there. First that comes to mind is Notepad++, which also has its own plugin system.

shnbwmn on 2015-12-06 12:06

For those of you that want something even better, there's Atom, from the developers behind Github. Portable, modern interface, and fully extensible. I don't think you can ask for better.

There is a new version 11.2.0.556, but i think it is not portable any more.

@Peter202 That's true - we're intentionally linking to the old version. I'll add a note to the entry about that.

Duplicati v1.3.4

billon on 16 Apr 2019
  • 24MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 2 Feb 2013
  • Suggested by procyon

Duplicati is a feature-rich backup client that allows user store compressed, encrypted backups locally or on a variety of remote services. The program can save bandwidth and disk writes by only backing up the parts of a file that have changed since the last backup. It can backup open/running programs, on demand or scheduled, and can run in the background with bandwidth and process priority limits to avoid interfering with other applications. Includes support for backups to Amazon S3, Windows Live SkyDrive, Google Drive (Google Docs), Rackspace Cloud Files or WebDAV, SSH and FTP.

Note: As portable software, it necessarily does not run at system startup so the available scheduling tools cannot function unless the program is actually running. To manually run a backup, just start the wizard and select "Run a backup immediately".

Cross platform (Mac/Linux) with available command-line tools.

Category:
Runs on: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10 / Wine

Have you tried Gladinet Free Starter Edition?
(http://www.gladinet.com/p/download_starter_V4.htm)

It ain't portable, requires DotNET and kinda messed up my system, but it's the only proposition I found...

appsuser on 2019-04-16 20:29

All website links to this version (that I could find) are dead. Still found here:

Just to clarify my previous query, deleted files goes to recycle bin but the directory/folder is lost. It does not go to the recycle bin. Why it is like that and what is mklink deleted all files/folders ?

hamasaki on 2013-11-07 16:32

I regularly have issues selecting a drive from the drop downs for each pane. On both sides the panes do nothing. It never selects a drive.

smaragdus on 2015-10-12 22:21

My main problem with NexusFile- it is 32-bit and cannot 'see' Windows 64 shell.
