Snap backup makes it easy to frequently backup and archive your valuable data. The first time you run Snap Backup, you configure where your data files reside and where to create backup files. You can also specify a secondary archive location, such as a USB flash drive (memory stick), for storing backup files. Snap Backup automatically puts the current date in the backup file name, alleviating you from the tedious task of renaming your backup file every time you backup. The backup files are standard compressed files (zip format).
