Backup Assistant provides a systematic method for backing up and restoring datafiles to floppy disks, CD-R's or other media. Data backup is essential in order to restore important files case of a hard disk failure.
The concept of program operation is to save a group of datafile names as a Backup Set. This makes backups and restores very easy to do. The backed up files are compressed and archived in a standard zip format to minimize disk usage. If desired, you can make multiple Backup Sets. Several utilities are provided to help you find and designate your datafiles.
This program can also be used to synchronize files on two computers by backing up files on one computer and restoring to the other.
