Versioning & Incremental Backups

Reverse Incremental storage (block level)
A special kind of incremental storage that avoids the drawbacks of normal incremental or differential backup algorithms.

Storage Types & Locations

USB sticks
Network drives

Simple Restore

Access or copy files directly from your backup
Backups can be opened as "virtual drives" directly in the Windows Explorer. There you can access their contents just like any normal hard drive. That includes browsing, searching, copying, dragging & dropping, as well as opening files from the backup directly in your applications.
Restore entire hard disks or partitions with just a few clicks

Scheduling & Pausing

Automatic Pausing
Backups are done in the background and are automatically paused to prevent them from slowing down other programs. Various system characteristics are monitored, e.g. CPU usage, I/O usage, fullscreen applications, etc.
Built-in scheduling of backups
Backups can be started either automatically at scheduled times or manually by clicking a button.
Stop & Resume:
Backups can be stopped and resumed at any time. This is handy when the computer needs to be shut down, for example.
