IdleBackup: Backup your files when you're not doing anything else

Posted by ClifNotes, Apr 2008, permalink Backup Tools


I found an article about this great looking backup tool at the DownloadSquad. Have you tried it? How do you back up your PC?


Quote from the DownloadSquad:

So you want to perform regular backups of all your important files, but you don't want to leave your computer on all night to run your backup software of choice. IdleBackup will copy your files to any hard drive, folder, or network drive only when your computer is idle.

You can set IdleBackup to run only when your system has been idle for a set number of minutes. And you can choose what idle means. By default, IdleBackup will start if you haven't touched the mouse or keyboard and when the CPU activity is low. But you can skip the CPU check and just monitor the mouse and keyboard activity, which makes it more likely that IdleBackup will spring into action when you leave the room for a few minutes.
