PhilS,

An excellent point and it is for this very reason that Macrium Backup Free did not perform incremental backups that I migrated to Aomei. I have had no with restoration or reliability issues with Aomei.

Worked fine on a simple test from internal C drive to D drive, which took all of a couple of min to set up. A plus for me is that it allows storing files "as is", ie, not storing in some proprietary format, so that if you need to restore down the track you are stuffed if you don't have the backup application handy or remember which one you used :)

However, the negative for me is that it won't allow a back up of files from my local NAS (WD MyCloud), which is where all the family data files are stored - unless there's an option I've missed somewhere, or some security setting I need to adjust, I can't use this product.

I'll continue to use the free Comodo Backup (uh oh, here comes another plug!) which also allows straight file copy, and backup from my NAS without any issue (and system backups). I've been using it for 6 months to back up critical email files on a weekly basis without dramas. It allows full, incremental and differential backup options (and cloud storage if you really really really want to put your precious files in the hands of some obscure organization).

But to echo one of the earlier comments today, full credit to GOTD and the app manufacturers for continuing to provide products that remind us all of the importance of backing up. Doesn't matter how you do it - use these tools, manual copy to a pocket drive, burn to disk, save to cloud, RAID storage - but just do it!!!!

no backup to any cloud storage, no backup to FTP of any kind secure or not... no differential, incremental, smart or full backups. no AES encryption...

I seriously doubt that Backup4All LITE has won any significant awards with those and more limitations!

See http://www.backup4all.com/compare-products.html for full comparisons.

TK,
Not everyone wants Cloud storage, and many people have enough cash to have terabyte back-ups.

Reply   |   Comment by Jake  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Jake, Not everyone even wants to perform backups at all, your point being? I'd need over 3 terabytes of backup space to perform a full system backup of just my laptop! I was pointing out what the crippled lite version lacked that the others didn't.
This giveaway was sold on the pretence that it could perform backups to multiple destinations, but in reality it was just multiple local drives, and no offsite backup facility afforded by a cloud or SFTP service to follow best practice of keeping valuable data in at least 3 different places, including offsite backup in case of fire or other devistation.

TK,

My point is that there is no Cloud.
There are merely other companies' hard drives.

You want to give others control over your personal data. Fine. I just hope it doesn't have sensitive information concerning your customers.

What a waste of time. Go through all the "hoops" only to find out Backup4All is not designed for system backups. Can't handle the "Big Stuff".

My choice in this category is Aomei Backupper Standard (FREE). Rich in almost every feature most user will need, file, partition, system, disk, and yes it does full, incremental, and differential backups. Step up to Pro if you want to migrate a hard disk or execute some cloning action. Check it out. This is not an advertisement. I use, and I like it and so recommend it.

michaelangelo, Their web site says you can clone a hard drive, "Automatic, full, incremental and differential backups simplify your backup tasks.
Clone system partition or entire disk to transfer OS to SSD or upgrade disk" can you confirm?

Fred,
We were fortunate enough to be offered the professional version on this site about a year and a half ago.
This is a line from the help file:-
You can also use Disk Clone to
migrate from HDD to SSD, or for making a duplicate of a HDD.

And here is a link to their online help:-
http://www.backup-utility.com/help/?adb

Been using their software for my backups of my system, easy-to-use software that appears to work.

michaelangelo, I have Aomei backupper Pro and whilst it is feature rich with regards to imaging, I have found it unreliable for restoration.

Macrium Backup Free is very reliable on the other hand, even though it lacks incremental backups.

Fred,

Has worked for me on several occasions but keep in mind I was using a standard hard drive not an SSD.

Who would bother with a backup program that is not automatic, let along pay for one? There are free ones that do more and automatically back up. This is just a way to get you to buy their standard or pro version. Moving on. Nothing to see here today.

The Lite version for free? Shouldn't it be the Pro?

Reply   |   Comment by Sesquipod  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+14)

Hi Sesquipod :)

The lite version costs usd 19.99.

Reply   |   Comment by xilolee  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

Sesquipod, Take a look here: http://www.backup4all.com/buy-now.html and you will see that the lite version is not free.

Why You all vote xilolee's comment negative? His answer is correct!

Reply   |   Comment by nibo1978  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

nibo1978, I think Sesquipod was expressing their constenation at the contempt the vendor is showing by offering the lite edition as a free giveaway after finding out how restricted and unimpressive compared to always free backup products that are out there, and that they should have offered at least the Pro editition as the giveaway not the lite edition.

Both you and xilolee misunderstood the OP's intent hense the negative votes.

Thanks for this offering:

Q1. How do we obtain the 20% Discount for Upgrading?

I am concerned by the age of most of the plug-ins available as a great many of them seem to be released in June or July 2012

Q2. Does this mean they are out of date OR are they capable of handling(backing up) anything released after June 2012?

I do like what I have read on the (Pro) website

ONE final matter: Amazon S3 & Azure which I understand to be some sorts of cloud backup is virtually pointless if you live in many parts of Outback (read as "inland") Australia (which I do), due in very large part to either 1. the expense of timed phone calls or internet connection plans which are priced on the quantity of data and we're not talking inexpensive but rather Ridiculously eXPENSiVE, or, 2. the poor / inconsistent performance of our copper wire based phone network, so backup to a local (read "in home") harddrive is about as big a risk as many 'out here' are prepared to take.

It took 18 minutes for this GotD page to download on my dialup connection, and that's without downloading any images. Just thought you'd like to know.

The PRO Version is what I'm looking to buy - based on your hopefully favourable reply.

So I hope you reply withing the next 20 or so hours.
Thanks

Peter C1, It does seem like the companies out there all have this strange belief that everyone has access to internet 24/7, which is as far from the truth as truth in government.

No incremental backups??? Plus lots of good free programs available. This is not for me.

Since idea informer is not working for what ever reason I will leave my feedback here:

Please allow backups to be made in different file type. Example the backups are made in a set of zip files, could the same be done in say a set of rar files or 7z files?
