I've been using Argentum 2.5 for several years now since the demise of Datakeeper and I like it for a few reasons but mainly because it works nicely over a network and with network drives, and I can run it hourly and it has nice variance of compression available. It is also highly configuarable for multiple types of backups

Out of curiosity I clicked the Buy Now button to see how much it costs
but for some reason Spybot has my HOSTS file loaded with entries
listed below that block my browsers access to regnow.com.

127.0.0.1 regnow.com
127.0.0.1 www.regnow.com

Q1... How much is Argentum Backup t buy it?

Q2... What's so harmful at regnow.com that Spybot blocks
access to the site via loading up the HOSTS file?

I use a program called Cobian Backup - it is free and it seems to do whatever Argentum does. I have used it for months with no problems. I have not used the scheduling as Rich does but it does have that feature.

Cobian Backup is a multi-threaded program that can be used to schedule and backup your files and directories from their original location to other directories/drives in the same computer or other computer in your network. FTP backup is also supported in both directions (download and upload).
