I currently have all my files on an internal drive 1TB and I want to be able to backup all the files weekly but not an image of the drive a copy of it so on the destination drive everything is openable and just the same as the original using the same amount of space.
I used to have Jam Smart backup but for some reason it stopped working on my Windows 7 machine, maybe because it a bit out of date these days.
Does anyone know if such a backup software exists like this, all they seem to go on about is making an image, but for some reason I don't trust this sort of backup as you cannot see if it actually has worked and made a backup of the files you wanted.
Hi yeah I tried this an it took ages then found out the backuped files where all in zip files so couldn't find anything. I want to for example be able to go into my backup drive and see that the word file created yesterday then I backup and it backups all my recent files since the last backup and then I can clearly see this word file has been made a copy of and backuped.
That's what the Jam smart backup used to allow me to do and I liked it for that, with these zip file backups, I'm paranoid that it hasn't actually got a copy of my newly updated files cause I cannot see them in an actual directory with the same filenames and everything.
Thanks very much Forum Editor I will take a look at Allway Sync. I did also find Fbackup which also looks like it might be what I'm after. I unsure if I want the external drive turned on all the time using more electricity when I was only going to backup really weekly, I'll have a think, I don't suppose they use all that amount of lecky.
