1. Backing up your files with Backup Mill
  2. Restoring your files with Backup Mill

Free Windows Backup Utility Program

For users of Windows 95/98/2000/NT/XP, the solution to your backup problems is here. Backup Mill has many advantages over the backup programs supplied with Windows.

You can back up your data files on to disk, diskette, CD or DVD. Backup Mill will keep track of file versions and disks. You can restore any file to any previous version without having to know on which disk or in which backup set it is located. You can create unlimited incremental backups. This saves time, backups and restores are very fast.


32 bit Windows (95, 98, ME, 2000, XP, Vista). For windows 95 the program requires OSR2 or later.


This program is intended for backing up your important documents. I do not recommend backing up an entire disk. Files that are in use may not be backed up and files that are being updated while the backup is running will not be backed up correctly. Operating system files should not be backed up with this program.

  • Multiple files in a directory with a wildcard specification.
