Looking for simple backup software

I am looking for a simple piece of backup software. I want something that is automated and will just make a single copy backup at a scheduled time.

You can use the command line utility Robocopy, which is part of the resource kit tools. You can make batch files with the applicable switches to do what you want. There is also a Robocopy GUI, but I don't know if that can be used as finely.

Hi thebradnetwork,

You can use NT Backup that comes standard with windows. GUI that's simple to use and very flexible. It has a reliable engine that it's running on.

Cheers.

NTBackup was the native backup utility developed by veritas software for microsoft OS and is available free for every microsoft OS . run "ntbackup" in the run box and you will be able to see the GUI and its very simple to use and administer but dont expect this software to do everything.

If you are looking for more backup and restore options and something that the world uses, you can opt for "Backup Exec for Windows Servers" again by veritas software now merged with symantec corporation which is the gold standards in backup and restore domain

You can evaluate this software for 60days from http://www.backupexec.com
