I use CrashPlan to take frequent backups of my Minecraft server, it's great for getting restores at certain points in time before events have occurred. I only need to backup to a local disk so is there an alternative to this program without paying for online storage?

Because all of these are ONLINE services with no functionality to automatically backup and restore files from specific times. I don't want to pay for CrashPlan because I don't require CrashPlan Central. – Dan Bovey Dec 13 '12 at 17:14
CrashPlan offers free local disk backup, which is the reason I got confused, thinking you needed cloud backup. – Ramhound Dec 13 '12 at 17:19
Installed CrashPlan again and realised why I had to leave it in the first place. Backing up more than once per day is a CrashPlan + feature – Dan Bovey Dec 13 '12 at 17:30
The simple solution is write a simple .bat file that uses SkyDrive, DropBox, Google drive and creates revisions yourself. Otherwise you can always pay for what you want. – Ramhound Dec 13 '12 at 19:32

CrashPlan is a free program.
You can install and use it without paying anything.

You only need to pay if you use the CrashPlan Central destination.
