Cobian Backup/Cobian Reflector

"...If you are looking for a stable and reliable application to safeguarding your data, Cobian Backup will not disappoint you. Give it a try..." - From a Softoxi review.

Cobian Backup is a file-backup program that can be used to make automatic backups for your directories and files. Cobian Backup can be run as a service or as a regular application. It can backup to some other location in the same computer, to the network and even to an FTP server. The program supports compression and encryption.

Cobian Reflector is the newcomer in the Cobian Backup family, although it’s a whole new program. Cobian Reflector is completely .NET based. In addition to all the features of the latest Cobian Backup, it has support for SFTP transfers, it is DPI independent due to the use of vector graphics and Windows Presentation Foundation, and also behaves as a 64-bit program in 64-bit systems and as a 32-bit program in 32-bit systems.

Please note that Cobian Reflector is still in BETA and bugs are still expected. Please report them at the Support Forum and there ONLY. I don't answer any technical questions by mail.

Cobian Backup and Cobian Reflector are freeware and can be used for free even in a commercial environment. Donations to help keeping this site alive are welcome!
