DateCopy is a lightweight backup tool designed to copy all created or modified files to a new directory. You can then store this directory on CDs, floppies, a remote filespace, or whatever else.
By first backing up all your files, and then periodically using this package, you can easily keep a record of all your current files, plus have a history of changes to frequently modified files
The inbuilt DateCopy manual gives detailed advice about how to do backups.
￭ Set source and destination directories
￭ Multiple ways of choosing date of oldest file to be copied
￭ Keeps a record of the times and dates it was used
￭ Automatically chooses sensible options
