I just want to backup a single directory. I need a gratis Windows app, with its own scheduler (I don't want to use the Windows scheduler).

The app *must *:

  • either all allow me to schedule the backup at regular intervals, or support mirroring in real-time; I don't really care which.

  • be portable and not wrtite to the Windows registry

  • have a very clear statement that it is free for commercial use, which I can show to my non-technical manager.

Th... th... th...that's all, folks :-)

  • Since you are requiring Windows, why not just use the built in robocopy utility? The only one of your requirements it doesn't have is its own scheduler... – ivanivan Apr 27 '17 at 18:46
  • Because, as the question states, "I don't want to use the Windows scheduler" – Mawg says reinstate Monica Apr 28 '17 at 8:13
  • What's wrong with the Windows scheduler? – a_horse_with_no_name Apr 29 '17 at 9:10
  • Long story, doesn't matter. It's a requirement not to use it. – Mawg says reinstate Monica Apr 29 '17 at 9:24
