Has anyone been sent their serial number for Backup4all Lite?
It says it should arrive in a few minutes.

Is it worth the wait I'm wondering.

An example where Backup4all Lite works well... With Windows 10 you get a OneDrive account, which can be the default save location for docs, photos etc. You see the folders storing your stuff in Windows Explorer, which is mirrored to your OneDrive account. Because your stuff is on OneDrive, it's protected by being stored on multiple hard drives etc., but while rare, stuff can still happen, and ultimately you're the one responsible for your stuff. So at some interval, say once a day [or once a week or every so many hours] you have Backup4all Lite backup some or all of the stuff in your OneDrive folders to local storage. That local storage can be an external USB drive that you connect before that backup & unplug after, because ransomware.

So many free solutions for efficient backup out there I kind of feel it would be unlikely that anyone would pay so can't understand why developers keep making more. And once you find one that suits your taste and learn its (sometimes hidden) functionality the effort of switching to another is not enticing. Hence apart from this comment I won't be spending time trying this one.
My solution for what its worth: For when my computer won't boot I have a couple of bootable CD's and USB chips created by using Easeus ("Data Recovery Wizard Free" I think) and backups on external hard drive of my C:/ partition ; my Boot partition and my recovery partition also by using Easeus. I redo the c:/ partition periodically. Then I use freefilesync and realtimesync carefully configured to back up my files. I have tried a few others before settling on these but each had a feature that did not suit me. (in particular I gave up on ones tha did lots of progressive backups producing hundreds of dated copies of the same file each time they were modified thus eventually taking up too much space) . I have no doubt that most posters will have their own favorites and I say to those who don't: backing up is essential get it sorted.

Do you really need this kind of programs? I guess no. This kind of tool is already part of Windows. Actually Windows 10 have two tools: File History and Windows Backup and Restore.

"Do you really need this kind of programs? I guess no."

I'd politely disagree...

Backup4all backups your data files -- docs & photos etc. that can be constantly changing as you work on them -- while the legacy win7 backup app included in win10 copies the raw data from the hard drive(s), creating an image backup. If you've invested quite a bit of time on a spreadsheet for example, you need to have a backup of that spreadsheet because stuff happens. A full image backup would do that, but it also backs up all sorts of stuff that's the same, like Windows, so the process takes longer, while taking up loads more storage space.

mike, are you forgetting previous versions with volume shadowcopy service? Not a true backup scheme but when it's used and works it can be of greater utility than a separate backup utility... when VSS store gets corrupted due to non-VSS compatible disk utility or dual booting to a non-VSS aware operating system and permitting writes to a normally VSS protected volume while in that other OS like linux it fails sometimes quite spectacularly but then again stand alone backup programs like this can also fail too. Which is why best practice recommends at least 3 different backup location/schemes one of which should be offsite in case of fire etc. What the Lite edition of Backup4all does is somewhat restricted and one would normally be significantly better off using an open source or mature non-feature limited freeware backup solution or collection of solutions.

If it was the Backup4all Professional edition would be great, because that version allow backup in Cloud. This version is only usable for people that store backup in local or external HDDs .

looked all over website to see how to restore if your computer wont boot os all i found is how to restore from the program itself not very helpful

I'd suggest and have for years used Macrium Reflect (paid and free) and it has an option for restore on boot without any media required or you can make a bootable USB or CD for recovery if needed. Fast and never failed me yet.

As for the issue you mentioned, I doubt you will find anything no matter how long you search as there appears to be nothing and no option for such a thing.

This is copied from the forum from "Support" so I would assume it is their "official" stand on this subject.

Re: Bootable or Emergency Disk? Anyone?

Backup4all was not designed for system backup, but for data files backups only.
You cannot create bootable disks using Backup4all.

Why mess with the best right? It's pretty hard to beat in my experience with MANY backup solutions.

Free is good, but when program actually runs is even better. Installed OK but wouldn't run, it did set up something on my pc but when I tried to use it I got nothing
