This article explains how to back up data keeping the original file format (without using compression).

FBackup offers two types of backups: full backup and mirror backup. The Mirror backup type is the one that does not use zip compression. The resulted backup will be an exact copy (mirror) of the source files, without altering their initial file format. This is the fastest type of backup because there is no file compression and no zip files are created (but occupies the most space).

Steps needed to configure the backup job to use Mirror backup:

Open Backup4all and select File->New Backup Wizard (Ctrl+N).
On the General page enter a name for the backup in the Name field.
On the Sources page, add the favorite's folder. Click Next.
On the Destination page, select a destination for the backup. Click Next.
On the Type page, select the Mirror backup type.
Click Finish.

Once this backup job was defined, you can start the actual backup by pressing the Backup button (or F6). Additionally you can schedule this backup job to be executed automatically at certain time intervals.
