Cobian Backup is a multi-threaded program that can be used to schedule and backup your files and directories from their original location to other directories/drives in the same computer or another computer in your network. The FTP backup is also supported in both directions (download and upload).
Cobian Backup exists in two different versions: application and service. The program uses very few resources and can be running on the background on your system, checking your backup schedule, and executing your backups when necessary. Cobian Backup is not a typical backup application: it only copies your files and folders in original or compressed mode to other destinations, creating a security copy as a result. So Cobian Backup can be better described as a "Scheduler for security copies."
Cobian Backup supports several methods of compression and secure encryption.
Backup FROM and TO a FTP server
SSL servers supported
The program can now remind you if you have missed backups
An open plug-in architecture to allow the program's enhancement
Backup to multiple destinations
Automatically remove old backups
The application can be used as a command line utility. No separate command line program is needed
