The convenience of making backup our data on the computer more or less regularly will save us more than a headache for these coincidences of life disc hard failure or even the file that we need at that moment becomes corrupted, or deleted. For this reason, free tools to perform backups are absolutely essential between the tools that we should have.

One such tool is the free Cobian Backup, which released version 11 Beta. With respect to the version 11 specifically, it adds the peculiarity that the backups can count with 128, 192 or 256 bits, if you wish the support to be as protected as possible.

Moreover, there are not too many developments; we added the option to schedule backup’s specific on certain days of the month or a general support system once a month or every certain number of specific backups. You can also schedule backup programs that occur only when a certain event takes place within the functioning of the computer, another new feature for this release.

This does not mean that Cobian Backup has nothing more to discover. The truth is that backup of entire directories or even the entire disk with only two or three clicks of the mouse was inconceivable until a few years ago or only reserved for applications of support of payment, but now we have all this, within a free application.

The program continues to receive the characteristics of save the backup remotely, in an FTP location if we wish to do so or in any kind of physical medium, as well as being able to be run as a Windows service, rather than as a program. It is compatible with both 32 and 64-bit processors, so it can be run on Windows XP and 7.
