SoftLogica announces Backup Platinum 3.0, a new version of its data backup tool.

It makes a reserve copy of your critical data virtually to any type of storage media: hard or USB drives, CD-R/W or DVD±R/RW media, FTP server or Local Area Network. The program uses "Wizard" approach to define the backup set: what, where, how and when to backup. 128-bit encryption with Blowfish and multichoice ZIP compression on the fly are available to keep your backups small and secure. Built-in CD/DVD engine allows you to erase the rewritable disk before burning and automatically split large backups to several parts using disk spanning. Backup Platinum is based on multi-threaded file-processing engine and creates detailed logs of all operations. The program can also run in service mode under NT-based systems to execute scheduled tasks even when nobody is logged in.
