Little Backup Box

primary purpose of Little Backup Box is to serve as a photo backup device, it's not limited to this specific
- Back up data from one USB storage device to another. Little Backup Box supports all types of USB solid-state
storage devices and all mainstream formats.
- Transfer photos and RAW files directly from a camera to an external USB storage device. If your camera is

- Use multiple source devices. Little Backup Box assigns a unique ID to each source device and create a
separate folder for it on the backup drive.
- Perform backup automatically, without any user interaction.
- Use and control Little Backup Box via a web UI.
- Stream the backed up contents to DLNA-compatible clients.
- Access the backed up contents from other machines on the network.
- Manage the backed up contents using a web-based file browser.
