GrandBackup Ultimate provides a friendly interface for easy backup of important files and folders. The copies can be compressed, encrypted and password-protected for users' peace of mind. Backups can be saved to any secure location that has been specified by the user. This may be a folder on the hard disk of a local computer or a laptop or any networked machine. In addition to this, the program allows saving backups to CD/DVD disks. The size of a backup doesn't matter. If a backup copy is too large to fit on one disk, GrandBackup can span it across multiple disks.
Making backups with GrandBackup Ultimate is very easy. Even users with little exposure to computer technologies can learn how to do this in a couple of minutes. The program offers an Explorer-style interface which is familiar to any Windows user, plus a Backup Task Setup dialog that guides users through the setup process in a step-by-step manner. Users only need to set up a backup task, describe a source location, a destination and specify the interval at which they want a backup to be executed. When the specified time is reached, GrandBackup performs the backup task in the background automatically without any user interference.
GrandBackup offers many options to automate the launch of backup tasks. For example, Media SmartDetect technology implemented in the program allows starting an automatic backup on detecting an external disk. Other options include autorunning backups on file size/attribute change, folder contents change, file/folder renaming, and according to a schedule. This choice of options allows users to automate backup tasks in the way that suites their personal needs best. Among other features, GrandBackup Ultimate offers FTP support, folder synchronization, ZIP compression, and recovery of accidentally deleted files. Any number of files can be excluded from a backup task and several old versions of files and obsolete files can be kept in the backup or a separate archive folder.
