    I organized some of my links today, with the intent to update my list of file/folder backup, sync, network storage software products that might be of interest in a Windows/Linux SOHO environment emphasizing private, on-premise computing. External storage hardware, NAS devices, online/cloud storage services and software limited to those, and vanilla encryption software weren't meant to be included in this particular list. If there is something you think would fit with the intended theme and I overlooked it, please let me know.

    I always forget about that site for some reason, so I'm glad you mentioned it. I made a few tweaks.

    I use Areca Backup for file-based backup (requires Java).
