6.Cucku Backup 1.21
Cucku Backup is a free and easy way for you to protect all of your data.We all know we should back up our data but few of us actually do it. When we do backup, it is usually to an external hard drive, CD or DVD. It is easy to lose a CD or DVD, and an external hard drive is just as likely to be stolen or damaged along with your PC.
The only real way to protect your data is to store it offsite.
Cucku backs up your files first to an alternative hard drive on your PC, and then sends an encrypted copy to your trusted backup partner. The copy of your data is stored in the unused space on the hard drive of your friend's PC.Cucku Backup has been designed with ease of use in mind. It is easy to setup and completely automated. Cucku knows how to detect the files and folders that should be included in a backup and selects the best location to store backups.Cucku keeps all versions of files that it has backed up. You can restore a specific version of an individual file or all versions of files prior to a particular date and time. Therefore, if you accidentally modify a file, back it up then regret the change, you will be able to still restore the previous version of your file.Backup is only part of the story. When it comes to restore, many online services will only allow you to restore over the Internet. Cucku's local backup means that you can restore files without delay from a local copy. Even better, if the worst happens and your PC is damaged, lost or stolen, you can restore your files from your partner. If you have a lot of data to restore invite your partner over for dinner, with their computer of course, and quickly restore over your home network. You can't do that with a datacenter!
Here are some key features of "Cucku Backup":
Automated, Off-site Backup:
· Cucku first makes a local backup. In most cases if you accidentally delete a file or folder or your hard drive dies you can restore them from the Cucku local backup. Cucku then automatically creates and sends an encrypted copy offsite to your backup partner for safekeeping.
· This is a big thing. Any backup that relies on remembering to burn a DVD, or push a button on the front of your external drive-or in any way requires human interaction-is a recipe for eventual disaster.
Ease of Use:
· We know it. Backup software configuration and scheduling is often a real hassle for most people. Cucku automatically figures out what to backup including email, bookmarks, open files, and other vital files you could overlook. Cucku automatically selects which files to backup and chooses the best place to store backups. Of course, you can always fine-tune every aspect of your backup.
· Cucku users actually get two backups. The first is a local backup. In most cases that is all you'll need to restore files quickly and easily. The second backup is the one that goes to your backup partner. If the worst happens you know you have a safe copy elsewhere.
· Knowing that your files are backed up offsite with someone you know is a great feeling. Encrypted copies automatically sent to a trusted location means that you're always covered.

9.Personal Backup 5.0
Personal-Backup is a program to save personal data to any destination folder. This folder may be located on a local fixed or removable drive, on a windows network server or on a FTP server. It runs under Windows 98SE/ME, Windows NT4/2000/XP, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003/2008 and Windows 7. The program configuration is stored for each user individually.
You can configure and store as many backup tasks as you want. The selecting of the file sto backup is made on folder basis. All subfolders are included automatically. But the user can exclude any subdirectories from backup by selection or by filter. Additional criteria are the selection by file types, file age and/or file name filter.
At the destination folder the original drives (C:, D:, etc.) look like subdirectories named LwC, LwD, etc. The original directory structure remains unchanged beneath these folders. All files may be compressed using GZip or in total or separated by subfolders as Zip files. Optionally alls data can be encrypted by the AES algorithm.
Performing the backup can be done manually or automatically. During the backup the programm checks wether the file to be saved is newer than the backupped file or not. Only files with newer timestamps are saved. An alternate criteria is the archive bit of the files.
The automatic backup is started on login, at a selectable time of day, on logout or on shutdown (not under Vista). You can make a scheduled backup with dayly or weekly changing destination paths.
For individual schedules it is easy to start a backup using the windows task scheduler using the comman line options of the program.
Note: Personal Backup should not be used to save and restore system files.

SyncToy is an easy to use, customizable utility that will help you move, copy, rename and delete files between computers and folders.
There are new sources of files coming from every direction: digital cameras, e-mail, cell phones, portable media players, camcorders, PDAs, and laptops. Increasingly, computer users are using different folders, drives, and even different computers (such as a laptop and a desktop) to store and retrieve files. Yet managing hundreds or thousands of files is still largely a manual operation.
SyncToy can manage multiple sets of folders at the same time; it can combine files from two folders in one case, and mimic renames and deletes in another. Unlike other applications, SyncToy actually keeps track of renames to files and will make sure those changes get carried over to the synchronized folder.
Here are some key features of "SyncToy":
· Dynamic Drive Letter Assignment: Drive letter reassignment will now be detected and updated in the folder pair definition.
· True Folder Sync: Folder creates, renames and deletes are now synchronized for all SyncToy actions.
· Exclusion Filtering Based on Name: File exclusion based on name with exact or fuzzy matching.
· Filtering Based on File Attributes: The ability to exclude files based on one or more file attributes (Read-Only, System, Hidden).
· Unattended Folder Pair Execution: Addressed issues related to running scheduled folder pairs while logged off.
· Folder Pairs With Shared Endpoints: Ability for folder pairs associated with the same or different instances of SyncToy to share end-points.
· Command line enhancements: Added the ability to manage folder pairs via the command line interface.
· The SyncToy engine has been rearchitected to provide scalability and the ability to add significant enhancements in future releases.
· Sync engine is also more robust insomuch that many single, file level errors are skipped without affecting the entire sync operation.
· Sync Encrypted Files: Sync of Encrypted files works when local folder and files are encrypted, which addresses the common scenario involving sync between local, encrypted laptop PC folder and remote, unencrypted desktop PC folder.
· 64-Bit compatibility
· Folder pair rename
· Sub-folder Exclusion Enhancements: Descendents creates under excluded sub-folders are automatically excluded.
· Folder Pair Metadata Moved: Folder pair metadata removed from MyDocuments to resolve any issues with server-based folder pair re-direction setup.
· Removed combine and subscribe actions.
