Cobian Backup is a multi-threaded program that can be used to schedule and backup your files and directories from their original location to other directories/drives in the same computer or other computer in your network. FTP backup is also supported in both directions (download and upload).
Cobian Backup exists in two different versions: application and service. The program uses very few resources and can be running on the background on your system, checking your backup schedule and executing your backups when necessary.
Cobian Backup is not an usual backup application: it only copies your files and folders in original or compressed mode to other destination, creating a security copy as a result. So Cobian Backup can be better described as a "Scheduler for security copies". Cobian Backup supports several methods of compression and strong encryption.

CobLazy: Plug-in for Cobian Backup 6: CobLazy is a "Before backup" plugin. When the backup begins, the plugin will be executed and if the day of the week is Saturday OR Sunday (can be configured), the current backup will be interrupted. This is useful, for example, if you have scheduled a daily backup but you don't want to make the backups on weekends.
