Automatically copies your essential documents and other important files and folders to reserve location on the same drive, another drive, or across the network. You set up Tasks that describe the source, the destination, and the backup schedule. SmartBackup monitors the source files for changes or additions and then automatically copies the new or changed files to their designated destinations.

The program uses the familiar Windows Explorer interface. Task setup dialog box is easy and intuitive, that makes configuration jobs a snap.

Advanced options include PKZip-compatible compression, password protection, directory synchronization, and background thread priority control. You can also include or exclude a specific file or set of files from the copy and keep any number of old versions of files. Once you configure the projects with your important file locations, the program sits as an icon in the Windows system tray and unobtrusively copies files in the background.
