    I'm looking for a better backup software. I have togeather ideas of what I am looking for in it and which ones I have used.

    To multiple locations (USB Drive, Network, FTP)
    Run when not logged in (service?)
    Backup active files?
    weekly full backup
    incremental - Daily
    keeps 5-7's of backup files
    Beable to go back 5-7 days to get a file
    FTP SSL
    Files stay in readable state. - not in some proprietary state


    Tried:
    Recent - Cobian Backup - had issues backing up files that were open.
    Recent - Live File Backup - had issues getting FTP over SSL working. Was no that user friendly IMHO.
    Syncback Free
    Synctoy
    Idlebackup

    Thanks

    Tried NTbackup? Nice and free. I don't know if it'll have all the features you are looking for though.

    iDrive personal is $50/year for 250GB of storage. I use it for my stuff in the house and like it. Does previous versions, too.
