The first version of Snap Backup was released in 1999.  It was written in Visual Basic, which made it ill-suited for distribution over the web.  In 2003 Snap Backup was ported to Java and internationalized.  Support for Italian, German, Esperanto, and Russian was added in 2005.


Snap Backup is open source and free for all to use.  To the maximum extent allowed by law, there are no warranties whatsoever included with this software.  Before relying on any backup files, be sure to check their validity and verify that the correct files were indeed backed up.  The source code for Snap Backup is available under the GPLv3 license.
