This program bundles and backs up multiple jobs, although its help file is a bit overzealous. XKat is essentially trouble-free to use, plus it has a wizard to walk you through creating tasks. During tests, we were able to effectively compress and back up several files in individual groups known as jobs. Anytime you're ready to launch a job, simply click and select a destination spot and XKat immediately extracts each file housed within that job. The program runs in two modes, Internet and basic. The only difference is that Internet mode lets you connect to a server and copy files online. Scheduling jobs to begin at specific times is a cinch, thanks to another wizard tool. Though most help files are set up to guide you from the start, this one is tedious, lengthy, and best-suited for quick references. Wading along its common interface and helpful wizards is an easier way to go. Anyone from small-business owners to home users can appreciate the way XKat can back up, compress, and organize a filing system.
