Everyday I see people loosing their coins (Bitcoins and altcoins) because they forgot to make backup, sometimes people loose different kind of coins.

So I am wondering, why doesn't someone makes a simple app for autobackup (1 click backup). I don't think it's hard to code.

App just need to autodetect clients or there should a option to chose file manually and it should create encrypted backups (encrypted zip) of all coins on secure cloud storage or pendrive or a different partition of HDD.

I agree, it should not be difficult for programmers on this forum.
Even I can write a batch file that does exactly that.
It compresses and encrypt the wallet, then ftp to a private server on web.

It would be very easy to create a program that does this, but I can just imagine the post...

"Download this .EXE and run it to back up all of your wallet.dat files."

I suspect anyone that would do that has already lost their coins.

Safer is to use a batch file.  Add coins by copying the section and giving the coin a name.

Change the BACKUPDRIVE to a drive letter for a CD or thumbdrive.

Yes batch file is a good option for linux and Windows, not sure if you can make one for mac too.

If it's open source, I don't think there should be a problem, as people download miner .exe's and different altcoin .exe's too.
