BackItUp is a fast and simple backup program that you can put on a schedule to make daily backups of your folders containing important documents, pictures and e-mail messages.

Question: What makes it so fast? Answer: Incremental mode of operation. Instead of backing up the same files files every day, it adds only files that were created or updated since the last backup session. Normally, this method speeds-up the backup process by hundreds of times. Unlike standard Windows backup utilities and some other old backup programs that offer incremental backups, BackItUp does not create separate archives containing new and updated files. It updates the same archive. So, this does not require additional space on your disk.

The program supports ZIP compression and is compatible with the 64-bit ZIP format. There is always a tradeoff between the resulting archive size and the compression speed. You can choose from several compression modes. I'd suggest that you create separate "tasks" (the program allows you to create multiple profiles called "backup tasks") for your documents and your binary files (images, archived software, etc.) Choose the Maximum compression for your documents and the Fastest compression for the binaries.
