Backup4all Professional is a software application that comes packed with automatic backup capabilities, encryption and compression options.
It sports a clean and straightforward interface that gives users the possibility to define a backup task by specifying the name, adding a short description, and changing the icon.
Backup4all Professional is able to save data to any local networks, FTP or SFTP servers, and you can also save the directories to DVDs, Blu-rays, HD-DVDs, or other removable devices.
What’s more, you can select the files and folders to be saved, or opt for one of the preset backup profiles, which allows you to save MS Outlook personal folders (PST), Outlook Express email archives (DBX), and others.
The application bundles four backup types (full, differential, incremental, or mirror), and allows users to specify the compression level (slow, medium, fast, fastest), as well as protect the archived items from unauthorized viewing by setting up passwords and selecting the encryption algorithm.
Plus, you can view statistics about the total size of backups, next scheduled tasks, last backup duration and size, test the created backups for possible errors, or delete them.
Additionally, you can set task priorities, run the specified program before or after the backup operation, play sound notifications when detecting errors, successful actions or warnings, send email messages and attach the log files at the end of the task, as well as schedule backup sessions.
Last but not least, it offers support for plugins which enable users to save Firefox profiles, IE favorite folder, or data from email clients such as Thunderbird, Microsoft’s Outlook and Windows Mail.
All things considered, Backup4all Professional proves to be a reliable utility when it comes to creating compressed backup files.
