FBackup Makes Backing Up Application Data Simpler

FBackup Makes Backing Up Application Data Simpler

Windows only: Freeware backup software FBackup includes special plugins for most popular applications—so you don’t have to worry about which files to backup anymore, it’s all handled for you.

FBackup can do all the things standard backup applications can do: automated backups, zip compression, password protection, an easy wizard and even backing up open files—but the killer feature is support for plugins that tell the backup application exactly which files to backup—an extremely useful feature for easily backing up hard-to-find files like the profile folders for Google Chrome, Pidgin or even Opera without resorting to manually finding each location from deep within a hidden folder somewhere. Sure, you can always backup the entire contents of your drive to make sure you captured everything, but even with today’s hard drive sizes that’s still a waste of space.

FBackup is a free download for Windows only. For more, check out your five favourite Windows backup tools and take a look at the five best file syncing tools.

  • Any one know of a games version of this. Steam is getting better at it with the persistent stats thing but I found it impossible to backup/transfer saved gamed with a lot of other games as the data is usually spread everywhere.. and although playing CO$ again from the beginning is appealing. I would have really liked to just jump in an play the C130 chapter again without having to re do everything again (which I did). For other games where I would like to carry on after a long break ie after a year on my new system is a little frustrating.
