Cobian Backup is a multi-threaded program to be used to back up your folders and files to other directories / drives on the same computer or other computer in your network. FTP backup is also supported in both directions (download and upload). The program consists of two different modules: the application and a service. The program is running in the background, uses very little memory and checks your backup tasks and performs them if necessary. Cobian Backup is not an usual backup application: it only copies your files and folders in original or compressed mode to other destination, the result is a back up. A “Scheduler for security copies” is a better description for the program. Cobian Backup supports different methods of compression and strong encryption. Meanwhile, version 11 is released. Perhaps this is the last version of a good backup program, because it’s very quiet on the site for a long time and the development seems to stand still.
