We've all heard the stories: system crash, catastrophic data loss, no backups. I always intended to back that stuff up, I just never got around to it.

Get around to it.

Areca is a backup program that may help to give you the push you need to get started. Along with an easy-to-understand GUI for manual backup sessions, Areca also has a command line interface, so you can automate your backups with shell scripts and batch files.

Backing up to .zip files, Areca lets you store your data to your local drive, to network drives, thumb drives, or even FTP servers. You can build filters to grab just the files you want, and perform either full or incremental backups, all of which really puts you in the driver's seat as far as your backups go.

Don't become a statistic (cue dramatic music) by losing your important data. resolve to start systematically backing up your system today.

Areca Backup is a Java application, so it should run on anything that supports the Java virtual machine. The publishers specifically reference Windows and Linux systems.
