What is AutoVer?
AutoVer is a configurable automatic or real time backup and personal versioning system. It can be used as a simple real time backup or as a more complex, but transparent version control system (like a realtime incremental backup). The beauty of this system is that once you set it up (which is extremely simple) it does everything. No remembering to backup or to check in or check out files. Every time you save a file it is copied to your backup folder or drive. You can include and exclude certain files and browse the backups with the Backup Explorer.
Select any number of separate folders or folder trees (including sub folders) to watch for changes - each folder tree has its own independent settings Select straight backup or one of two versioning modes Select any folder, drive or FTP to backup to (including memory sticks and network drives) Option to create an initial backup before the automatic backup starts and ensure it is current on every startup Backups can be checked automatically, at a set time or manually Restrict which files and folders to include and exclude (by file mask) & maximum size Change the versioning date/time stamp format and versioning rate. Zip or delete old versions after a specified time (or just keep storing the files) Optionally delete backup files on original file deletion permanently or to the Recycle Bin Fault tolerance in case your backup folder/drive goes off line or source files are locked. Drives re-sync'ed when they come online MS Office, Visual Studio plus many others supported (temp file creation, delete then rename is treated as original file change) Backup file & version explorer included Open backups or file versions directly (file extensions are preserved) or via inbuilt explorer Compare file versions (using an external application) Restore file versions one at a time or all at once via inbuilt explorer or manually
The program seems to be no longer updated. Last version, 2.2.1, released in April 2014, can be still downloded from the official website.

If you are looking for high security, nope. But if all you need to do is have files copied, as is, to make quick backups, this is it!
All I needed was something to make backups of files from a certain location. That is what it does! You can tell it how often you need them backed up, if you want to backup no matter what or only if they were changed. It will copy the files into a separate location so you never have to sift through the backup files to find the real ones (I think you can back up to the same folder if you so desire)
If you want something easy to install and use this is it. If you want hard and complex, look elsewhere.
No encryption feature.
