Active Backup Expert Pro is a handy utility for creating automatic or manual backups of local and network files in the popular zip format on all types of floppy, hard disk and CD drives. The wizard guides you through the steps of creating a backup project: specifying paths and filters for included and excluded files, specifying storage directory and schedule, choosing incremental or differential copying method. By enabling file selection according to the time of their modification you will get a copy of only new and modified files. Once you have configured the project you are free to create any number of backups. You can easily restore backup files and view and edit their contents. The Export and Import functions are useful for synchronizing directories on two or more computers and for splitting large backups into multiple removable disks. Other features include file size and attribute selection, creation of self-extracting copies, command line support and ActiveX automation. Detailed documentation is included. ABE Pro creates automatic copies using the Active Task Manager included in the distribution. This automation utility can also work on its own to help you automate other tasks. You can also use the standard Windows Task Scheduler to automate your copies, though.
