Backup files, synchronizing and filtering, with the Replicator

Computers may suffer a damage any time, even by a virus, so that keeping a backup of (at least) your most important files, is not an option you should neglect.

I’ve used many backup tools, from very simple, as is the one by Microsoft, to very complex. This one, Karen’s Replicator, although easy to use, includes all of what most of us need, that is scheduled or not backups of files/folders, entirely or selectively, by using filters.

Karen’s Replicator is a free application that will copy selected files from one drive/folder to another. Source and Destination folders can reside anywhere on a network. Options include repeated copies at intervals as short as a few minutes, or as long as several months, copy only files that have changed, and the replication of folder and file deletions.

You can specify which files should not be copied, and also which days a file should be skipped! Synchronization is also possible, by configuring two different jobs (e.g. copy from office to home and the opposite), where each of them will copy only changed files.
