BackupTool

Free tool for backing up your FANUC robots

Backing up your robots is a pain, especially if you have more than one robot.

BackupTool makes it easy and saves you a ton of time by backing up all of your robots at the same time and organizing those backups into timestamped and named directories with a very simple command-line interface.
