 I am looking for software that will backup regularly, however I do not wish the software to overwrite the previous backup. I suppose this means the file name needs to be changed to something unique, maybe with the date as part of the file name.
 You can create a Sync Task and use the sync option 'Transfer all files' and select option 'Append time stamp to filename'. All source files will be uploaded/downloaded with time stamp appended to filename ensuring unique name at the destination.
