We use GitHub as the primary Git server for our public repositories - see

GitHub might loose our data (like it happened to GitLab earlier this year), they may get hacked and go down for an extended period of time, or they might suddenly go out of business. Who knows.

To solve this, I have created the software "GitHub backup for Windows" (published as open source on GitHub of course) which automatically backups up all your GitHub repositories to a Windows computer. See more details in the README file.

PS: I know that similar tools / scripts exist for Python and "Bash"(?) already. But I use Windows, and I don't know Python or Bash. So for me, a Windows tool makes more sense.
