7Backup Creates Backup with 7-Zip Compression

March 12, 2010 | Filed under Backup, Software


7-Zip is able to compress files with very high compression saving precious hard disk space. Most people use this to compress multiple files into one so that it can be easily transferred and shared. Other than that, 7Zip can also be used to backup files by simply right clicking on a folder and compress. Because 7Zip is not a backup tool, there are no options to make it as a convenient backup solution.

Thanks to solidsnac, he has made a frontend graphical user interface called 7Backup that can create backup using 7-Zip and archive the backups into 7z compression. 7Backup is a backup software using 7-Zip compression. It supports backups from local and network sources. Since the backed up files are in 7z format, you will need to install 7-Zip on your computer to extract the backup files.
