  1. There is a Historical backup option, but in actual form, it will keep one backup per month. Your request is very legit, and I guess it would be a nice addition to FileFort, to have the option to add the current date to the backup file.
  2. 1. Regarding the available space on disk. You will need an amount of free space on disk equal to the size of all of your files you want to back up. If you have a lot of data, if you can, maybe it's better to create several backup jobs, instead of one big backup. (Like, MyMovies, MyPictures, TVMovies, TVShows, MyData, and so on). In this case, the requirement for available space would reduced to the require space for the largest backup. 2. Mirror backup. I would want to know what kind of Mirror backup you try to use? There is the regular Mirror backup, that indeed would replace the exis
  3. This issue was fixed in latest versions.
  4. Click on FileFort menu, and select "View Logs". An Explorer window will be opened with the folder where the log files are located. Usually is: C:\Users\YourUsername\AppData\Roaming\NCH Software\FileFort\Logs Or C:\Documents and Settings\YourUsername\Application Data\NCH Software\FileFort\Logs You can delete your log files from here.
  5. Update to last FileFort release. It should detect your external drive just fine. http://www.nchsoftware.com/backup/ If by chance is still not working... select as backup destination "Network folder", and then select your external drive. If Windows can see the drive, so do FileFort through this option.
  6. 1. The software should see your external drive. Click on toolbar "Destination" button, and select "External or Backup Hard Drive". If not, select "Network folder", and then click on "..." button and select your external drive. 2. Regarding "Disk full backing up files": FileFort will have to create a temporary backup file. This temporary file is not created on your destination (external drive), but on your TEMP folder used by Windows. This will insure high speed, but you will need to have enough available space on your drive. Usually it's on C:\Users\YourAccount\AppData\Local\Temp.
  7. Please download and install the latest version of the FileFort component from: http://www.nch.com.au/components/infozip.exe This update will fix the memory issues. Installing a new version of FileFort will not update this component, so be sure to run this update. If you installed FileFort for the first time less than a month ago, you don’t need this update.
  8. - To extract specific files to a directory, just open FileFort, right click on the backup job and select "Browse backup with Express Zip...". Running this option for the first time, it will install Express Zip (an archiving and a compression tool, with an easy to use interface). From here you can see the whole structure of the backup and you can extract any file(s) you want, just dragging the file(s) in your explorer folder, or using toolbar button "Extract". If you don't have this option, please install the latest version of FileFort. http://www.nchsoftware.com/backup/index.html -
