Remembering to back up your files and data can be tough if you don't have some automatic system in place to handle it for you. At the same time, you don't want to get caught gaming in the middle of a big backup session: your computer will slow to a crawl no matter what backup tool you're using.

IdleBackup will copy your files to any hard drive, folder, or network drive only when your computer is idle.You tell IdleBackup how often you want your files to be backed up, minimize the program to your system tray, then never think about it again.The utility is a fully featured backup app, and it can be configured to back up whatever files and folders you like to any external hard drive, folder, or network drive you choose.

The backup utility is pretty simple. You can choose the files and folders to backup, and that's about it. IdleBackup will perform incremental backups. But there's no restore feature, so you'll have to manually copy your files back to your PC manually if you need to recover them.
