During the summer holidays 2016, I was very busy on programming my website. I did not use file versioning yet, and for all changes and milestones I copied the files to a folder as a backup instead. After a loss of data, I came up with the idea to develop an easy-to-use backup software.

The focus of BackupDrive is not just to create complete disk images, but to easily back up individual folders, files, documents and images. In addition, a clear listing and administration of the backups should be provided.

The program is available for free download. I would be happy if you could use the software as well and I hope you enjoy using BackupDrive.
