By: Steve Dougherty | Software News | Posted: Jun 16, 2009 4:29 am

Our Download of the Day today is Backup4all 4.2 Beta.


Backup4all protects your valuable data from partial or total loss by automating backup tasks, password protecting and compressing it to save storage space. You can easily backup to any local or network drive, backup to FTP (with support for SSL encryption, proxy server, passive mode), backup to CD/DVD, or other removable media (such as USB drives).
