Features:

Easy to Use

* Comprehensive help file.
* 'What's this' help. (Right-click an item on screen for a quick help definition of that item.)
* Select folders/files for backup or restore in a graphical tree view. (You can use absolutebackup's easy to use tree view to extract files from normal Zip files as well.)

When you include sub-folders in a selection, the software will automatically include any sub-folder that is added in the future. In addition, you can easily exclude any specific sub-folder as well.
* Multiple folders on any drive can be defined in a backup job.
* Include or exclude specific files/folders or file types.
* Compatible with any media Windows Explorer can write to directly such as network drives, zip drives, SuperDisk, floppy disks, CD-R / CD-RW (using UDF software drivers such as Roxio DirectCD or Ahead InCD). Disk spanning is also supported on removable media.
* Backup jobs can be scheduled to run automatically at any time via the task scheduler, or they can be run manually.
* Backup files are compressed in zip compatible format. The files can be opened/extracted by any zip software application, making the backup files easy to restore onto computers that do not have absolutebackup installed.
