octoBackup Server+Agent

Consolidates files on multiple servers to one backup server.


  • Centralized backup of all Windows servers (also servers in co-locations)
  • Usage of cheap hard drive storage for backup
  • Minimizes network traffic because only new or changed files are copied
  • If tape backup is wanted, only one (third party) license for one server is needed
  • Freeware


  • Small and fast software package
  • Does not install any files into system folders, so it can be completely deinstalled.
  • Easy to use command line interface (telnet based)
  • Sends accumulative report e-mails (not an email per job)
  • Does copy files with path and file names longer than 255 chars
  • Tested with Microsoft
    • Windows 2000 Server
    • Windows Server 2003
    • Windows Server 2003 R2 (32 & 64 Bit)
    • Windows Server 2008 (32 & 64 Bit)
    • Windows Server 2008 R2
