    An Open Source personal backup solution which is released under the General Public License (GPL) v2.

    Areca Backup is basically allows you to select a set of files / directories to back-up, choose where and how (as a simple file copy, as a zip archive, ...) they will be stored, and configure post-backup actions (like sending backup reports by email or launching custom shell scripts)

    It has been designed to :
    • Be as simple as possible to set up : No complex configuration files to edit - Your backup configuration (which is stored as an XML file) can be edited with Areca' s graphical user interface.
    • Be as versatile as possible : Areca can use advanced backup modes (like "delta backup") or simply produce a "basic" copy of your source files as a standard directory or zip archive (readable by WinZip or other archivers).
    • Allow you to interact with your archives and the files they contain : Track different versions of a specific file, browse your archives, recover or view specific files, merge a set of archives, ...

    Backup Engine Features:
    • Archives compression (Zip & Zip64 format)
    • Archives encryption (AES128 & AES256 encryption algorithms)
    • Storage on local hard drive, network drive, USB key, FTP / FTPs server (with implicit and explicit SSL / TLS)
    • Source file filters (by extension, subdirectory, regular expression, size, date, status, with AND/OR/NOT logical operators)
    • Incremental, differential and full backup support
    • Support for delta backup (store only modified parts of your files)
    • Archives merges : You can merge contiguous archives into one single archive to save storage space.
    • As of date recovery : Areca allows you to recover your archives (or single files) as of a specific date.
    • Transaction mechanism : All critical processes (such as backups or merges) are transactional. This guarantees your backups' integrity.
    • Backup reports : Areca generates backup reports that can be stored on your disk or sent by email.
    • Post backup scripts : Areca can launch shell scripts after backup.
    • Files permissions, symbolic links and named pipes can be stored and recovered. (Linux only)

    Graphical User Interface:

    • Backup simulation (check whether a backup is necessary)
    • User' s actions history : Areca keeps an history of all user' s actions (archives deletion, merges, backups, recoveries).
