Out of interest, does it allow backup FROM ftp, ie. I want to backup my websites to my local pc..?

Hi Claudiu --

Can it compress files using standard ZIP format?

Can it backup to dual-layer DVD discs?

Hi Claudiu,

I didn't look at the features yet, but first impression is the site looks really noisy, don't you think you should have a web2.0 look ?

Carp - no, it doesn't do that, though it's planned for a later release

Doug - Backup4all does 2 types of backup, with zip compression and without. The zip compression is the standard one so the zips can be opened with any zip utility (so if you're using AES encryption the zip utility has to have support for that - which most of them do)

As for the dual-layer, right now that's not included but in the final 4 release (or version 4.1) we hope to have that included as we're working on it.

Dev S - the new website look is on the works, hopefully in 2 months we'll have it live

Thank you all for the responses
