Areca Backup

Areca Backup

Areca Backup is a file backup software developed in Java. It includes a transaction mechanism which guarantees the integrity of a backup.

The software allows users to select files or directories to backup, filter, encrypt and compress their content, and store them on a backup location.

Areca supports incremental backups and generates backup reports, which can be stored on disk or sent by email.

This application is intended for personal documents backup.

Areca supports incremental, differential and full backups.

Areca allows you to define a set of target. Each target defines :
- Which file or directory will be saved
- A set of file filters to apply during backup
- How to store your archives (with or without compression and encryption)
- Whether your backups are incremental or not.
- What must be done after backup (send report by email, launch shell script, merge archives, store report on disk).

These targets can be run with a graphical user interface or a command-line interface (the latter is useful for backup automation).
