I don't care about performance, I care about UI latency. Whatever I'm doing at the computer only I use is by definition the most important job the computer has at the moment. Shame nobody in the OS design business realizes this.

Submission + - Personal local backup for windows

rangans writes: "I am a student in the hardware design field with lot of HDl code and schematic/documents to work with(on my laptop with windows XP Home Edition). I am looking for some way to do differential and incremental backups of my important files to a USB drive. I am now using Synctoy for windows. But I am in need of something more powerful that can restore files back to a specific date (incremental) and not backup the entire partition/folder (differential) all the time. I am tired of network based solutions as I dont have access to network at home. I am looking for something like rsync but locally on a windows system to a USB drive (sbackup for ubuntu?). The personal backup appliance on vmware player also only backups entire partitions. I am ready to run any virtual appliance(if any exists) for this job, if no native windows solution exists. It will be great if it is opensource and supports encryption too. Thanks a lot."
