Need FREE Backup Program Please

By BorgInva ·
I am looking for a FREE to download backup program that uses a GUI interface. I need a good one. A working one. I currently use XXCOPY but it is too complicated with all those switches, and it does not even work all the time. I have used dozens: Cobal, MOB, etc. Some programs do one thing I need while others do another. What I need is this from one program:

*GUI interface
*Compatible with Win9x, 2000, XP
*Able to select folders and files
*Able to create sets of multiple entries to backup*Able to create groups to run multiple sets.
*Able to choose from copy all and incremental.
*Able to choose to delete files/folders in destination that are no longer in source.
*Able to copy files/folders regardless of attributes.
*Can write to a CD-RW when the CD is a drive letter using DirectCD, or similar.

At this point, I cannot think of what other feature I need.
So, what programs do you recommend I try? Either point me the way or send it my way. I will try anything if I have not already done so.

Unless they are selectable in OPTIONS, I do not want it to backup files as one archieve, and not to restore files to a directory of its choosing, like those "c\" directories. I want ot be able to restore a file to a directory of my choice, not restored to another directory called:
c\dir1\me.doc.

Try TaskZip

It will backup to zip file, so you can do whatever you want to the archive.

I tried that link but it seems to be invalid. I will try again tomorrow.
I really do not want to try a program that will compress all files into one. I want something that will just copy (unless there are options to compress into a zip). Since thisprogram puts things into zip, which is very common, I will give it a shot once the link works.
You see, MS Backup might be good, but if Windows crashes, I will have nothing to extract from a bkf, you know?
I will try that link again tomorrow.
