It is, perhaps, not a coincidence that "backup" and "boring" begin with the same letter. Copying files, sometimes in their thousands, from place to place on a regular basis, just in case: The more often you do it, the safer for you, but oh what a drag!
Now, what do you do with boring tasks? You automate them as much as possible. You need data backup software that can perform varied scheduling, start backup jobs the moment folder contents change, have hot keys enabled, send emails automatically, use multithreading, have command-line support:
ExtraBackup does all that. And it has a comprehensive assortment of "Destinations", i.e. computer resources where you can backup your data to - from local and remote folders to FTP servers to recordable CDs/DVDs (a built-in module is on the way) to email inboxes as attachments (soon to be enabled). It can compress and optionally encrypt your backups, it is capable of very flexible file filtering - the bottom line being it can be fine-tuned to practically any backup-related need.
So far not so bad.
Come to think of it, not so boring after all.
