This is the software publisher's description.

Cobian Backup is a multi-threaded program that can be used to schedule and backup your files and directories from their original location to other directories/drives in the same computer or other computer in your network.

FTP backup is also supported in both directions (download and upload).

Cobian Backup exists in two different versions: application and service. The program uses very few resources and can be running in the background on your system, checking your backup schedule and executing your backups when necessary.

Cobian Backup is not a usual backup application: it only copies your files and folders in original or compressed mode to other destinations, creating a security copy as a result. So Cobian Backup can be better described as a 'scheduler for security copies'.

Cobian Backup supports several methods of compression and strong encryption. The latest v11 contains a number of minor new features and fixes and fully supports Windows 8 (Consumer Preview).
