Altexa Backup is a modular backup application, allowing for different backup types (think: copy, archive) and different storage modules (local, ftp, s3, gdrive, even bespoke) and it is developed in Delphi. As stated by the developer, “Pure Delphi, Windows service, GUI, console-based worker for background tasks, trayicon, auto-update, comprehensive logging subsystem, full i18n. Even more useful is AltexaBackup’s use of the Windows’ technology known as Volume Shadow Copy, also known as the ability to backup files which are open, and locked by some other application. How annoying would it be to have to make sure you shut down Outlook every night to be sure that your backup will be done correctly? All of this is handled transparently by the backup engine. Note that Shadow Copy can only be used if your version of AltexaBackup and Windows share the same architecture – 32-bit or 64-bit. If you are using a recent version of Windows (Windows 10, for example), this will likely be 64-bit. You’ll need to download the correct version of the backup suite. We provide both 32-bit and 64-bit versions – if there’s a mismatch, the program logs will tell you about this.”
