FBackup is a free backup software for both personal and commercial use. It protects your important data by backing it up automatically to any USB/Firewire device, local or network location. The backed up data can be either compressed (using standard zip compression) or an exact copy of the original files. —but the killer feature is support for plugins that tell the backup application exactly which files to backup—an extremely useful feature for easily backing up hard-to-find files like the profile folders for browser software without resorting to manually finding each location from deep within

rsync is a software application for Unix which synchronizes files and directories from one location to another while minimizing data transfer using delta encoding when appropriate. An important feature of rsync not found in most similar programs/protocols is that the mirroring takes place with only one transmission in each direction. rsync can copy or display directory contents and copy files, optionally using compression and recursion.
In daemon mode, rsync listens on the default TCP port of 873, serving files in the native rsync protocol or via a remote shell such as RSH or SSH. In the latter case, the rsync client executable must be installed on both the local and the remote host.
Rclone ("rsync for cloud storage") is a command-line program to sync files and directories to and from different cloud storage providers.
MD5/SHA-1 hashes checked at all times for file integrity Timestamps preserved on files Partial syncs supported on a whole file basis Copy mode to just copy new/changed files Sync (one way) mode to make a directory identical Check mode to check for file hash equality Can sync to and from network, e.g. two different cloud accounts Optional large file chunking (Chunker) Optional transparent compression (Compress) Optional encryption (Crypt) Optional FUSE mount (rclone mount) Multi-threaded downloads to local disk Can serve local or remote files over HTTP/WebDav/FTP/SFTP/dlna

Duplicati is a backup client that securely stores encrypted, incremental, compressed backups on local storage, cloud storage services and remote file servers. The Duplicati project was inspired by Duplicity and had similar functionality until 2008. In that year the storage model was redesigned completely and the program was rebuilt from scratch. This manual describes Duplicati 2, the version based on the new storage model.
Duplicati works with standard protocols like FTP, SSH, WebDAV as well as popular services like Microsoft OneDrive, Amazon Cloud Drive & S3, Google Drive, box.com, Mega, hubiC and many others.
Duplicati is free software and open source. You can use Duplicati for free even for commercial purposes. Source code is licensed under LGPL. Duplicati runs under Windows, Linux, MacOS. It requires .NET 4.5 or Mono.
Duplicati was designed for online backups from scratch. It is not only data efficient but also handles network issues nicely. E.g. interrupted backups can be resumed and Duplicati tests the content of backups regularly. That way broken backups on corrupt storage systems can be detected before it’s too late.
Backup files and folders with strong AES-256 encryption. Save space with incremental backups and data deduplication. Run backups on any machine through the web-based interface or via command line interface. Duplicati has a built-in scheduler and auto-updater.
Duplicati uses strong AES-256 encryption to protect your privacy. You can also use GPG to encrypt your backup.
Duplicati is configured by a web interface that runs in any browser (even mobile) and can be accessed - if you like - from anywhere. This also allows to run Duplicati on headless machines like a NAS (network attached storage).
Bacula is a set of computer programs that permits the system administrator to manage backup, recovery, and verification of computer data across a network of computers of different kinds. Bacula can also run entirely upon a single computer and can backup to various types of media, including tape and disk.
In technical terms, it is a network Client/Server based backup program. Bacula is relatively easy to use and efficient, while offering many advanced storage management features that make it easy to find and recover lost or damaged files. Due to its modular design, Bacula is scalable from small single computer systems to systems consisting of hundreds of computers located over a large network.
Batch renaming of files and folders
Bulk Rename Utility is a free file renaming software for Windows. Bulk Rename Utility allows you to easily rename files and entire folders based upon extremely flexible criteria.
Add date/time stamps, replace numbers, insert text, convert case, add auto-numbers, process folders and sub-folders....plus a whole lot more!
FastCopy is the fastest copy, delete, & sync software on Windows. It uses modern checksum verification to ensure copy accuracy and data integrity. It handles long Unicode path names over MAX_PATH (260 bytes), and automatically optimizes copy mode operations between the same storage device, or different storage devices.
In Diff HDD mode, reading and writing are multithreaded in parallel. Same HDD mode uses a larger read buffer so write operations will not cause slow disk thrashing. Because FastCopy doesn't use the OS cache, other applications and processes remain fast, and speed approaches the limit of the storage device. High performance is obtained from using the Win32 API instead of MFC.
FastCopy has an Include/Exclude filter that allows you to customize large file operations, and it has a job manager. FastCopy can automatically run only one operation at a time, to avoid disk thrash, and achieve the highest possible speed.
A free utility designed to copy files faster and more secure. It can verify copied files to ensure they are identical. It skips bad files during copy, not terminating the entire transfer. Seamless integration with Windows Explorer.
The paid version of the program (TeraCopy Pro) includes the following features:
Copy/move to your favorite folders. Save reports as HTML and CSV files. Select files with the same extension/folder. Remove the selected files from the copy queue. More features coming soon!
Robocopy, or "Robust File Copy", is a command-line directory replication command. It has been available as part of the Windows Resource Kit starting with Windows NT 4.0, and was introduced as a standard feature of Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008.
Robocopy is notable for capabilities above and beyond the built-in Windows copy and xcopy commands, including the following: • Ability to tolerate network interruptions and resume copying. • Ability to copy file data and attributes correctly, and to preserve original timestamps, as well as NTFS ACLs, owner information, and audit information using command line switches. • Ability to assert the Windows NT "backup right" so an administrator may copy an entire directory, including files denied readability to the administrator. • Persistence by default, with a programmable number of automatic retries if a file cannot be opened. • A "mirror" mode, which keeps trees in sync by optionally deleting files out of the destination that are no longer present in the source. • Ability to skip files that already appear in the destination folder with identical size and timestamp. • A continuously-updated command-line progress indicator. • Ability to copy file and folder names exceeding 256 characters without errors. • Multithreaded copying (Windows 7 only). • Return code on program termination for batch file usage.
