Good program to backup a website?

I'm looking for some software that will go to my website and initially download all files and directories and keep them in their current form, and then whenever I tell it to it will doublecheck it's copy against the servers and backup anything new I've added to the site. Any recommendations?

In windows; I am pretty sure that Front Page can do this... There is a ton of linux utilities that can do it as well.. there might be windows ports to them.. off the top of my head though..... wget, lynx & rsync should be able to do what you need.

I usually just log in to the FTP server and save the folder that holds your website.

Is your web server local or hosted elsewhere? A good backup application is Veritas - www.veritas.com

Dunno if it'll work over FTP though, never tried. It will work via all normal methods. How much data are we talking about being backed up?

Also, if it is something that FTP is required - you may wish to take a look at WS_FTP Pro from IPSwitch www.ipswitch.com although it is not designed as a backup application, you can do just as "onlya302" mentioned, but make it scripted and scheduled - only dling new/changed data.

Good luck,
Ceyko
