One thing I would appreciate seeing is a backup program that uses ZIP or something very popular or easy to access, in order to read the backup files and pull what I need. I've had too many of these suddenly upgrade to the point where I can no longer access my files. And I've had computer crashes that left me without any easy way to access my backups. Currently, I use mirroring software and 2 drives. It's the only way I've found to be sure I don't lose valuable files. However, that ties up a 3 TB drive for me.

Still considering whether to install this Backup4all . Maybe not. Macrium has been mentioned twice here. I just uninstalled Macrium because after a certain period of usage, the backup process slowed down to a crawl. It was very very very S..L...O...W. After I uninstalled Macrium, I surfed and discovered others have pointed out that Macrium over-uses very large numbers of Environment Variables in Registry. So many that they clog up the system. I checked my PC. The results were SCARY. I will not use Macrium ever again.
About fire damage and storage of backup off-site. Unless you run a business and accounts receivables are important, if your house burns down, the Home Use PC data is probably the least of your worries. You may have worry about injury or death of loved ones. How to pay for a new house and all its contents.
Nevertheless, the basic logic of storing backup offsite is sound.
Cloud? The businesses that run Cloud backup facilities can lose money for whatever reasons, wind up and close shop. There goes your "backup" in the Cloud.

Won't back up from Network Drives, just as useless as all the other "Lite" Backup programs which are already free. No thanks, I'll pass on this one.

Can it backup system files, so in case my computer crashes, I can retore it? Can I also make a rescue disk?
Thank you.

While I appreciate GOTD and Softland for offering this pkg., after reading through the comparisons of what the Lite version can and cannot do, I'm afraid I have to pass.
A few notables for me were thew inability to backup a networked drive, and the lack of any history of backed up, when and where, within the actual program. For a complete comparison, go here.

Thanks of course, but sworn infobank to Macrium Reflect until further notice. Hasn't failed yet and in midst of all that been going on from various places I'm not about to change horses.

i suggest that anyone serious about data access and security, they purchase an external hard drive, of whatever size will copy your information and leave room for more. use the bitlocker feature of windows, and encrypt the entire drive. copy your data to the drive that needs to be preserved, and afterwards, store the drive off site. if it is kept at home, and should there ever occur any number of disasters, from fire to flood, not only would you lose your original pc's, but your backed up data as well. making the point of backing up your data moot.

if one chooses to use a third party backup provider, ensure that in future versions of windows that you will be able to still use that software, and copies retained so it can be installed on a new pc to restore your backed up data. if it cannot be installed on a new pc, then what good is it to anyone? encrypt your drive. and like above, store it off site.

walter,

Off-site plus on-site is I think preferred, since hard drive failure and cyber attacks happen, and having easy access to the data needed to rebuild your setup is welcome when disaster strikes. And as far as hard drives go, external drives often have a higher failure rate than internal drives. Having duplicates of your backups on more than one drive helps, as does using a good model of 3.5" HDD in a drive dock while providing active cooling [something most external drives lack], unless of course you're using SSDs. While you should also keep a copy yourself, since stuff happens, the cloud is often a better option for your backup archives, as data centers can have more protection than you could easily manage, including redundant storage on more than one HDD.

Bitlocker is a bit harder, if not impossible to implement for many home users, and provides little advantage over other proven methods of encryption, e.g. VeraCrypt.

This version does not include Cloud backup?

Reply   |   Comment by Ken  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-8)

Ken,

While the Lite version on GOTD does not, there's little reason you couldn't store your archives in a folder that's automatically synced with your account in the cloud.

Is it a limited period license. In that case, how does one restore the backup taken during license period?

Dattatraya Vaidya, Read the blue area on the right side of the screen. It states, lifetime license.

Although quite basic, it works well and does what it's designed to do without any problems

How is it better than the built-in windows backup?

Reply   |   Comment by Hariharasuthan KS  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+15)

Hariharasuthan KS, I have used this in the past and can't honestly say that it is any better or any worse than Windows backup, its really down to personal preference. The software, although fairly basic does what it's supposed to without any issues. The pro version is better, offering more options.

Windows backup can be compared to apps like Macrium Reflect or AOMEI Backupper, which copy the raw data on a drive/partition to an image in a backup archive that can often be mounted as a VHD. Since it includes stuff like Windows & your installed software it's good to restore a drive, or move everything to a new drive, but is too large, and backups take too long for convenient data storage, which ideally is synced with a backup much more often.

Windows 10 also offers Storage Spaces, which will let you set up mirroring, so data is stored on more than one drive, and File History, which will save copies of selected files/folders to another, usually external drive. These are more similar to Backup4all Lite, which while not native to Windows offers more features.
