Every computer user has experienced the pain and frustration that come from
a lost file or an accidentally deleted folder.
Too often important data is lost due to our careless
mistakes or a hardware failure or some well-meaning
individual who deleted the file without knowing
it was important. Such an event is more common
than you may realize, especially on corporate
networks where files are constantly being shared,
accessed and modified by more than one user. Fortunately,
there is GrandBackup that puts you back
in control over your files, ensuring that important
documents won't be lost for good because they
can always be restored from a backup.
GrandBackup Personal offers you an elegant
way of securing files and folders by putting their
copies to a safe location of your choice. This
may be a folder on the local hard drive
of a desktop PC or a laptop,
or any networked computer, or
an FTP server. There is also
the opportunity to save copies to CD or DVD disks.
The amount of data to back up doesn't really matter.
GrandBackup can span a backup copy across
multiple disks if it's too large to fit on one.
is available, so the backups do not take too much
of your hard disk space. For your peace of mind,
the program allows you to protect your compressed
backups with a password.
In terms of usability and ease of use, GrandBackup
really stands out. Its biggest specialties are
the Explorer-style interface and Task Setup dialog,

exposure to computer technologies. Setting up
a new backup task only takes a minute or two.
Guided by an intuitive dialog, you'll specify
the source location(s), the destination location,
and the frequency at which you want to back up
your files. When the specified time is reached,
GrandBackup performs the task in the background
automatically without any interference from you.
Besides timed backups, tasks can be configured
to start on certain events like detection of an
external disk, e.g. a floppy or a USB flash disk,
change of a file's size or attributes, file/folder
