Backup4all Lite 4

What is Backup4all Lite 4?  (from Softland)

Backup4all is a backup program for Windows that protects your data from partial or total loss. It automates the backup process saving you time, compresses the data to save storage space (using standard zip format) and encrypts your backup to protect from unauthorized usage.


Backup4all Lite 4 is a software program developed by Softland. The most common release is 4.7.270, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. During setup, the program registers itself to launch on boot through a Windows Schedule Task in order to automatically start-up. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The primary executable is named Backup4all.exe. The setup package generally installs about 22 files and is usually about 43.16 MB (45,258,888 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows XP. While about 33% of users of Backup4all Lite 4 come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany and Sweden.
