The second step: you can choose any files or folders for backing up or simply drag them into the backup window.
The third step: after that you can choose the destination folder or create a new one.
The fourth step: allows you to choose one of the three backup options: 1) Full backup (all files will be saved),2) Incremental backup (only newly added files will be saved to previous backup), or Differential Backup ( will be saved changes since creating full backup).
The fifth step: allows you to compress your backup (you can compress all files into a single zip file or create a separate zip file for each file) and encrypt it by a strong password.
The sixth step: allows you to set up schedule task for your backup. You can run the backup at specified time, for example, every day, every month, etc.
The seventh step: It allows you to perform several additional tasks: run a program before running a task, etc.
That’s all, you are done. Now simply choose the name of your backup and click finish. All your files are now safe and can be easily restored at any time. You can see from the screenshot below that I have created my backup without any problems.
The restore process is practically the same. All you need is to choose restore option, specify backup file, select restore location, choose full restore or incremental, set up time schedule. That’s all. All your files, folders, etc. will be restored in a couple of minutes.

They are: 1)Execute Selected tasks-hotkey Ctrl+F5, 2) Restore Selected tasks, 3) Stop operating on selected tasks-hotkey Esc, 5) Task Properties-hotkey Alt+Enter, 6) Delete selected tasks-hotkey Del.
