Backup Files that are in Use or Locked. You can backup files even when they are open, locked or in-use by other programs without interrupting your current work. This feature is based on Misrosoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS). VSS provides a mechanism for creating point-in-time copies of data known as 'shadow copies'. This feature is especially useful in copying exclusively locked files such as SQL DataBases, Word / Excel documents etc.

Usually the program creates backups as a set of compressed files or uncompressed folders located at HDD, USB or network drives.
Moreover, you can upload backup to FTP, send it via e-Mail or burn DVD with your backups.
You can back up to several destinations in a single backup job.

You can choose the most suitable backup strategy you would use.
You can set up full, stack, incremental, differential backup types.
