Keep recently created files safe with DateCopy: Backup utility from Peter Hillman

By Chris Williams. Published: 24th Jan 09:50:49 | Permalink | Printable

Yesterday, Peter Hillman released DateCopy, a freeware harddisc backup utility.
DateCopy will copy all files created or modified after a given date to a new directory. This allows you to backup recently created files, as the copied files can be further transferred on to CDs or floppies etc.
Written in C++, Peter has included the application source code as the DateCopy program includes code which allows easy porting of Windows applications to other platforms. Peter hopes this will be of interest to other software writers.

Also on the Peter's website is SESType, a typing tutor.
