Simple Directory Backup — As its name implies, Simple Directory Backup is a simple program that allows users to back up and archive Windows folders to hard disk drives, USB drives and flash memory. They may be backed up as directories and files or in compressed or uncompressed .zip files, and users may schedule the backups for times of their choosing. There are no bells and whistles in this program, and it does not attempt to do tasks that can be done by other free and widely available software. For example, there is no feature for restoring individual files from a .zip file; if you restore a directory using this program, you have to restore the entire directory, along with any subdirectories included in it. Nor is there any provision for file encryption. Also, this program will not burn CDs or DVDs.
