Backup Utility is a small tool that allows you to backup files from different source directories and allows you to create multiple target files. It is able to self-create the archives in the ZIP format, but it also gives you the option to select an external program if you wish to use a different format to backup the information.
Besides that, it has two operational modes: Easy and Advanced mode. The Easy mode shows a single panel, where you can add one or more source directories and assign a target file to each of them, with the only disadvantage that you cannot select the path for the target files. The advanced mode is more customizable, it includes a panel where you can add multiple source directories, and another where you can create multiple target files; with the advantage that you can select the path for them, assign a target file to each source directory, or assign multiple source directories to a single target file.
Regardless of the mode you choose, the rest of the process is a piece of cake; it just requires you to start the backup process, with the option that you can select the targets to backup or backup all of them at once.
Among other features, the program includes a list of common folders to backup, has an option to use unique names, and lets you save the backup projects into a file.
In short, if you are looking for a program to create several backup files at once or backup several folders from different locations, this tool is for you. If this is not your case, there are many other options that let you backup data more easily and for free.
