These are a collection of some small free software tools, utilities and other miscelaneous programs available for download. You can find similar programs elsewhere but they usually have some kind of limitation (usually not free), which is why I end up writing my own.

Backup Utility

This program will copy all the files in a certain directory of a specified type into another directory. Effectively, it is a very simple and easy to use backup utility. Backup jobs can be saved, and you can specifiy restrictions such as file size, date, and type. I use it because I can't use CVS.
