Duplicati

Leave a Comment









Duplicati is a powerful free backup tool which can save your
target files to Amazon S3, Windows Live SkyDrive, Google Docs, Rackspace
Cloud Files, WebDAV and FTP servers, as well as local and network
drives.


The program comes packed with backup options. You're able to specify
common backup sources with a click, for instance, or choose the specific
files and folders you need. Include and Exclude filters help refine
exactly what you're saving, and built-in AES-256 encryption keeps your
archive safe.


Duplicati's default backup strategy is sensible, with the program
running incremental backups most of the time, and a full backup every
month, but you can change this if you like.


A capable scheduler will run each backup job automatically at the specified interval.


Handy performance controls allow you to limit the program's upload or
download speeds, so it won't tie up too many system resources.


And restoring files is just as straightforward: you can recover an
entire backup, or just the files you need, in a very few clicks.


Duplicati is about saving files and folders, rather than full
partitions, so if you're looking for something that will create an image
of your system drive then this isn't the program for you. (And it
doesn't include a bootable disc to restore your backup, anyway - you can
only recover files by running the program first.)


Still, if file backups are enough for you then there's a lot to like
about Duplicati: it's fast, has plenty of features, yet remains
generally very easy to use
