The description above OR their website is telling lies their website says for Backup4all Lite:

http://www.backup4all.com/backup-products.html

"Backup4all Lite

Backup4all Lite is the edition that offers basic backup features. It's recommended for home users that don't need the advanced features of Standard or Professional, and just need to run manually a mirror backup. While it supports as backup destinations external/removable drives and network destinations, it lacks support for FTP, DVD/Blu-ray and supports only mirror backups"

Yet the description of this giveaway for Backup4all Lite states:


"With Backup4all Lite you can easily backup to multiple destinations:
•Local: back-up to DVD, CD, Blu-ray, HD-DVD, or other removable media (such as USB drives).With Backup4all Lite you can easily backup to multiple destinations:
•Local: back-up to DVD, CD, Blu-ray, HD-DVD, or other removable media (such as USB drives)."

They cannot both be right as they are mutually exclusive!

Backup4all is a file-based backup app that has been around for quite a while -- when you Google for reviews you get hits like a PCMag writeup from 2004 -- so any kinks have probably been ironed out long ago. Maybe its most well known competition comes from CloudBerry, which has a feature limited free version that's also file based. CloudBerry's advertised claim to fame is backing up to a large selection of cloud services as well as local storage. Of course there's nothing stopping you from uploading Backup4all Lite archives to the cloud.

File based backup apps are good for basically the same stuff as file/folder sync software, making copies of your data to help make sure you don't lose it, but if you're going to store your stuff in the cloud -- which makes sense because it's off site & usually redundant [i.e. data's stored in more than one place on more than one drive] -- using Backup4all Lite [& similar] lets you encrypt that data to keep it safe from prying eyes [or algorithms]. Compatible with 7-Zip, your stuff also needs less storage space, & is faster/easier to upload to the cloud if you choose to.

Microsoft & Google would rather you just kept your stuff in their clouds to begin with, and both focus on resetting or replacing the OS rather than backing it up, including your software. If that software comes from their stores it will be easily reinstalled, though using the store with Windows, especially as your sole source of software, is a bit rare. Image backup software OTOH captures the raw data from your drive(s), so you can restore everything, both Windows & your installed software, but the archives are larger because of that, requiring more storage space, & most people do not have the upload bandwidth to even think about storing copies in the cloud.

Image backups do come in handy. The February Windows update broke one copy of win10 -- stuff happens -- and because of a recent partition image backup, it took less than 1/2 hour to get it running again. [Part of the reason it didn't take long is that when possible I store the most recent image backup on a 2nd, internal HDD. Another reason is that, again when possible, I have a very minimal 2nd copy of Windows 10 installed for the convenience of not having to muck around with bootable USB sticks/drives.]

If you need faster recovery than that, SSDs will transfer the raw data that makes up an image backup faster. Or set up your PC's case with a easily swappable hard drive -- pull the drive out from the front of your case & insert a cloned drive. Biz will often just switch to a good, working copy of the VM they were using, but that sort of thing isn't practical for individual PCs rather than servers.

Just what awards did it actually win?
are these awards legitimate or bogus made up awards.
Thanks for any answers that you may provide.

Bill, I have used this app for many years and it's a great backer-upper. The nice thing about it is if you back up to flash drive or something and something wrecks your pc, you can recover it. If you lost the app you can just re-DL it and you're good to go.

BTW how did you get a +7 rating when all you did was ask a question?

Perhaps I am missing something , but if you have a 4 or 5 tb external drive Why not create a partition, and back up creating a ISO of the c drive to the new partition. It doesn't take very much time to do. Also it will be bootable by resetting the boot sequence. I have used this principle several times About once a month I delete the ISO, and create it again, If I have problems with my main boot drive the ISO is pretty current. I use free Aomei backerupper It works amazing well. Just a thought, also the Aomei free partition manager is excellent to add partitions to do this. If you dont like Aomei products there are other free ones out there.

Installed this program before and uninstalled it almost immediately. Another one of those useless programs that creates a image instead of backing up the individual files. Avoid this POS at all costs.

AaaaaBbbbb, Strange, I could select a couple of map's for back-up.
And after having made a task, you can schedule the task for the next time.
And it is possible to restore just ONE file from the backup in.

Ootje, i can see where the OP got the impression this lite edition was for creating image backups as their website does say the lite edition supports only mirror backups.

http://www.backup4all.com/backup-products.html

"While it supports as backup destinations external/removable drives and network destinations, it lacks support for FTP, DVD/Blu-ray and supports only mirror backups."

And depending how one understands the term "mirror" it does imply you get an entire reflection of the drive hence the name mirror. Most mirrors don't let you select to reflect just your nose or left eye or right front canine tooth in the reflection. When I think it means it is just designed to directly copy the scheduled files and folders regardless of whether there was any changes or not to the original files so each successive backup archive will contain the full selection of files even if there are no changes from one session to the next. Rather than incremental or other types that compare previously backed up archived files states with the current files and only include the files that are modified or changed in some way reducing the size of the current backup archive and conserving resources on the backup media and amount of network bandwidth used to perform an incremental backup.

I believe this program does NOT create entire drive or computer backup images, which in the past was a reason I never kept it. I'd prefer my backup facility to handle BOTH scheduled system image file creation AND scheduled or realtime incremental selected files and folders backup. I don't want one program for system image backup creation and completely seperate program to backup user files and system wide media.

I had this software before, nothing wrong with if you do not mind restoring huge folders back just to find a single file you need, it takes long time to do it.
I prefer uncompressed back-up and not ZIPPED files or folders. Any file or folder sync software does it much faster and I can see the same files and have instant access to the old files in just a simple click.
Just imagine the time it will take for a library of 1000s DVDs compressed and Zipped, you will need long long long time to do it and then the same time to bring it back from compressed or zipped state.

morty,

"Just imagine the time it will take for a library of 1000s DVDs compressed and Zipped"

That's not what file or image backups are for. For one thing, you won't get significant space saving from compressing / zipping the DVD folders [zip or 7-zip are methods of file compression]. It just usually doesn't pay to compress video, & many other types of media files. I can make sense with different sorts of docs OTOH.

Reply   |   Comment by mike  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+8)

morty, why do you uncompress an entire zip file to get just one file? Surely you open the zip in a gui that lists the contents and then just drag and drop the file or files or select the files and extract or restore the files you want, even if the archive is solid you can do that and the full extract from selection to extraction happens in the background asa tempory operation that takes just a few seconds on modern machines if that.

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+8)

StephenB, I feel the same way about compressed backups -- I want a backup I can go to and immediately find just the file I want. Not hidden somewhere in a compressed file that I have to DEcompress, just to find one file. So -- I use Karen's Replicator (still around, even though sadly she died some years ago).

This will make uncompressed copies of whatever files or sub-directories you chose, and you can programme it to backup certain sub-directories every week, or whatever.

I should point out that it is a good idea to check some of the copied sub-directories occasionally as I seem to recall that on some occasions I found them empty -- although, to be fair, this may be a fault of my computer -- I don't know.

I believe there are also other direct copiers out there, too. Good luck!

Good software for data, file and directory, sub-directory backup at the right price. I found it here long ago and purchased pro version. It keeps track of directories and can back in a stream of files that are individually receivable.

Easy and simple to use . A good thing.

I think it reasonable to give this a go if you aren't satisfied with your current b/u scheme, but if you like it, buy a license. The last thing you need is to need it after expiration.

I'll pass on this software. Backup4all Lite is fair piece of software. The reason I say fair, is because there are better utility programs that do the same thing. That said, they also cost more money than 19.95 for Backup4all Lite. Also some advanced features aren't available in Lite version They're only available in Backup4all. I see no problems using Windows backup. You already paid for it when you got your computer. Adding another utility to something that already works well doesn't make sense. Thanks to GOTD and Backup4all

Jim C,

"I see no problems using Windows backup. You already paid for it when you got your computer. Adding another utility to something that already works well doesn't make sense."

Windows 10 will by default set up your OneDrive account as the place to store your docs, so in that sense it can take the place of file syncing apps or backing up just your data, though it's still considered good practice to keep copies of your stuff on your own. Win7's builtin image backup app was somewhat popular, & by most accounts generally worked. With win7, the reason for using another app was that they gave you more features, & with GOTD, it didn't cost you anything.

With win10 however Microsoft put the focus on resetting the system, not backing it up. I've had cases where the bootable USB stick that win10 can create for restoration wouldn't boot the device it was created on. So with win10 I think you're better off with 3rd party software for image backups, and something like Backup4all Lite as a safety net for your stuff [not software], whether or not you store your stuff in the cloud. Redundancy is good -- FWIW Thurrott even strongly recommends using more than one cloud service, just in case, for stuff like your personal docs, photos, etc.
