Something free like Iomega's Automatic Backup?

I have been using Automatic Backup Pro for about 4 years now, but it has started to simply hang at start up. I wanted to delete and reinstall, but it doesn't seem to be available anymore and I don't have a copy. So I am looking for a replacement.

Whenever you change selected files or directories it makes copies to a thumbdrive, so you have current copies of important files if anything bad happens.

There must be a more modern program like this (preferable for free). Any suggestions?

Hello

I've never used that but here are some suggestions

Cobian Backup
Fbackup
GFI Backup
EASEUS Todo Backup

EASEUS Todo Backup seems like the best one to go with

Regards

Thanks but they are just bulk backup programs; not at all like IAB. It backs up changed files as soon as they are changed.

Ah ok, i'll have a look when I can and i'll see what I can find. Easus one does do scheduled backups but that doesn't do what you require. Now that I know what you need I will see what I can find for you. If I cannot find a freeware one for you what is the maximum that you would be willing to pay?

Thanks
