    Looking for a Simple file-by-file Backup Program for Documents Folder


    My Documents are not on the C drive but on another internal HD. My C drive is regularly backed up using Macrium but I have for some years been backing up my Documents folder with a frequent incremental backup. This checks the difference between the Documents folder and the last backup of it, updates the backup incrementally (its very quick) and, (this is the important point) produces a backup which is a file-by-file clone of the Documents folder. It is not a disk image.Therefore, I can directly access any Documents file (eg., a Word file and its actual text) on the backup by opening it or copying it.

    After a crash I have lost that backup program. (It's logo/icon was a big green"G"). It worked perfectly. Does anyone recognise it, or can anyone recomend a free backup program which does what I want? (I have had a look at AOMEI Backupper Standard but it does not say that it produces a file-by-file clone of the Documents folder).

    Thanks for any help.

    :)

    Looking for a program which grabs folders\files and converts it into text

    Hey guys,

    I'm looking for a program which lets you pick a folder and grabs all the files\folders names and puts it in a text file.

    I'm not sure if that makes sense, sorry if it doesn't.

    documents files and folders

    Hi Paul,

    For better assistance, we'd like to ask the following:

    • What were the steps you've tried to reverse the alphabetization of files and folder name?
    • Can you provide us a sample screenshot of the issue?

    We're looking forward to your reply.
