OT. Can anyone recommend a freeware backup software program.

What freeware backup system do you use for for example backing up your Mod Organizer files.
Why do you like/prefer that software
I think that the minimal requirements would be to be able to backup certain directories/files and having incremental saves (preserving space) and being able to restore individual directories/files for a certain date.
This post is not intended to start a war over what is the best backup software. I just like to have a list of a few good/suitable programs for the wiki.
Edit: Added the links.

What I do is about once a week go into my Mod Organizer folder and select the profiles folder and right click (I have 7-zip on my context menu) and say add to archive and then name it with the date.

If you look at their database of programs (via pplications > browse catalog) or alternatively install LiberKey and browse from within that (there are literally hundreds of excellent software applications in LiberKey), I'm sure you will find a free backup tool there.

Yeah that's what I do pretty much, as I said. I'd say save space on your hard drive and cut out the middle man. Make an archive of your profiles folder every now and then (major changes - additions or subtractions) and you should be good to go.
