When you have to deal with a multiple directories or files, sometimes you need a proper backup solution. Once the program is ran for first time, it will ask few questions: which directories to backup, location to store the backup file, do you want md5sum reports, what file format to choose for the backup archive. Once given correct details it stores that information as a module and everytime you run the program it will backup automatically those directories from the module's list. Of course you can add,remove,replace,change the location of every single directory or md5sum reports. You'll find Backup Like King really useful when dealing with a lot of directories.

If anything bad happens, it will be recorded in a log file in the same folder where the backup is meant to be.
