EZBack-it-up is a personal file backup utility. It is designed to be very easy to learn and use. It is not an archiving tool that compresses all your files and folders into a single archive but copies your data to a destination of your choice where you can easily access your backed-up files anytime you need. The entire directory structure is preserved, and you can choose to delete files from the destination that is not in the source. It includes a built-in scheduler, command line switches, logging functionality and more.
Features include its speed, as it can compare over 3500 files in less than 3 seconds (on a 1.2 GHz Athlon processor under Windows XP). It is also efficient as it uses an incremental backup style, only backing up files if they have been created or modified since the previous backup. It offers full logging, which provides peace of mind regarding data security. It has a built-in scheduler for scheduled backups and command line switches for flexibility. In addition, it is free and compatible with all Windows platforms (95/98/ME/NT4/2000/XP). It is important to note that Windows 95/NT4 requires Internet Explorer 5.5 or later.
Although this is a simple and easy to use backup tool, it is important to note that the latest version was released on November 3, 2004. This may be a problem for users who need compatibility with newer operating systems or who are looking for a backup tool with more features. In any case, for those looking for a simple and free backup solution for their personal files, EZBack-it-up may be an interesting option.
Although it is not designed to back up an entire disk, some users have reported that it works properly when backing up an entire disk. Backups can be scheduled either through the built-in scheduler itself or by using the Windows Task Scheduler with parameters and switches available in the "Action" menu. In addition, backups to a network drive are possible as long as the network path has been mapped to a drive letter beforehand. UNC-style connections are not supported.
To access and restore the backed-up files, simply use Windows Explorer to navigate to the backup task destination (which can be obtained by clicking the task settings button). You will find the full directory structure of the backed-up files and folders, and you can copy any of them back to their original locations. To view the backup log, simply click "Log" and then "View log" using Windows Notepad or a similar text editor.
EZBack-it-up does not offer built-in CD-R support, but it can still be used to create a file that can then be used with CD-burning software. To burn to a CD-RW, you need to have packet writing software (such as DirectCD or InCD) installed and format the CD with this software, which will provide a drive letter to use as the destination for the backup job. The software does not allow filtering out certain files from the backup.
As for disk fragmentation support, the software does not offer it natively, but multiple backup jobs can be created to cover different disks or partitions. It is also possible to use disk fragmentation software as an additional layer to fragment the file resulting from the backup. The software does not support file encryption and does not provide any virus protection.
