 for backup software
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :

  backup software
  
      Software for doing a backup, often
     included as part of the operating system.
  
     Backup software should provide ways to specify what files get
     backed up and to where.  It may include its own scheduling
     function to automate the procedure or, preferably, work with
     generic scheduling facilities.  It may include facilities for
     managing the backup media (e.g. maintaining an index of tapes)
     and for restoring files from backups.
  
     Examples are Unix's dump command and Windows's
     ntbackup.
