It also possible to update security info only. I often use Secure Copy http://www.scriptlogic.com/products/securecopy/ (Scriptlogic's tool) to perform file server consolidation and copy just those objects of attributes that I need to in this very moment. For example I often need to compare changes and get the most current data on my backup servers. But copying current data as it is well-known usually leads the copy procedure to get stuck. Not only this situation is annoying but it creates a lock-up in the whole copy and backup procedure thus ruining my plans to complete the procedure in time. I know, some tools say they can retry copying and this all sounds great until you try it. Most of them can do just a brute set of retries. That piss me off. How can I predict how long I would take to handle this file? And what about that file that is locked up because Susan just needs her excel workbook now and doesn't want to lose the access. That's what I like about this Scriptlogic's tool- it behaves smartly without spending the CPU time and network bandwidth on performing useless dummy copy operations. I love that the tool controls the process by itself, tracks how it goes with copying and retries the copy procedure based on the number of retries and time settings. I usually set it to retry copying for three times in a row and if it fails, I set it to wait for some time while copying other files that are not locked. But not only that, it also allows tuning settings to control server and network load and selectively manage copy operations when handling different storage locations and files. For example, when I perform consolidation of network shares I often set it to synchronize the security settings only. It leaves file content intact and compares changes in ACL. If the access settings have been changed by me here on the current server, it will change them on the destination servers and will not spend traffic on transferring the data. That gives a ton of advantages over the procedures I used to use performing scripted consolidations before I started using Secure Copy.

Pobieranie OK, instalacja OK. Est-Tec Backup 2007 ma wygodny interface i świetne graficzną prezentację utworzonych kopii bezpieczeństwa (nawet z informacją, czy była już wykożystywana). Ploecam, bo ma również dobrze opisany Help.

Actually, Belgian Dude, I had to repeatedly cut and edit that comment because it kept being refused... I used to have the links and more text for that particular comment beforehand =/ Anyway, yes, I *did* notice that there are no links, but I also did notice that if you bother to go looking for those reviews, they do exist.
I realise that it's not good for a company not to link to reviews they claim they have; It looks suspicious/dubious.

First see then believe. Time and time again I have seen programs stop working within a month, 3 months or a year.

True; However, I was being general and paying more attention to the claim that this was a one-day trial (or something like, I'm not going back to read it at this point).

you say”zip is not open source” in responds to Gary because you don’t understand he is not talking about winzip or so but about the archives produced by zip programs.

I addressed both in that comment.

Keilaron,

I guess you didn't understand. The point I was making is that there isn't a actual clickable link that takes you to any of the alleged reviews. Not a single one. The least a self respecting company could do is link of to those pages or to have actual screenshots or something more believable that just a bit of "qouted" text. Anyone can write anything and put it between qoutes and allege it to be a review.
It was the companyrep. that mentioned that they link to all reviews and awards who are available online. Don't you find it a tad weird that of all their reviews and awards there isn't a single one that they link to? Are you really that easily impressed by hot air?

Then again, I guess you are to busy bowing and scrapping that you can't be bothered to actually look at the pages.

---
you say : "..you have as long as your operating system lives to use this program."

---

In short, think before you write and make sure you are addressing the right issues instead of the ones you imagine.

Gimme (#55) - ZIP is not open source. They're probably giving the specs of the archive format itself by now, but zip programs are not open source. Perhaps you're thinking of 7zip? :>

Belgian Dude (#62) - On the topic of reviews: You didn't try all that hard, didya?
The review page and one of the reviews are pointed from their index page. Sadly, the first link doesn't link to the other reviews for some reason, but they do exist (you'll have to Google... I couldn't link to that many things here.).

Bill (#63) - Copy it manually. No, seriously. Preferably, you'd pop them onto a few DVDs and there's your music back-up. If you use no compression (not like your music will be compressed anyway), any DVD-capable system will read it, like your DVD player (assuming you're using MP3s, anyway. Sadly, ogg and flac haven't gotten *that* popular yet).

Deni (#69) - You are wrong, thankfully! The only time you need this program to restore your backup is if you use encryption, and even then the trial will do the job - you wouldn't need to pay.
Also, this isn't "one day" software - you have one day to install and activate it, yes, but you have as long as your operating system lives to use this program.

Sugarsweet (#7) - You can download your Hotmail e-mails using any e-mail client; OE has it built-in, other clients can use a program like Hotmail Popper. For Yahoo, you can enable the POP option in your mail options; If not, you can use a program like YahooPOPs.
After that, backing up depends on your mail client and your backup software. Today's Giveaway claims to directly support OE, so you shouldn't have any trouble there.

BladedThoth (#77) - Why the splitting couldn't be used to get over the 4GB limit... either because ZIP can't do that anyway (I don't know if the limit applies across splits), or because ZIP actually can't split it intelligently (Last I've seen, ZIP wasn't smart enough to split archives at an arbitrary amount, it always had to go to a new media/disk, unlike RAR).

Mary Coon (#81) - Because it works for them, obviously. Try the mirror?

Marilyn Bradley (#119) - Did you read the readme?

Jack Boyce (#120) - Don't worry about it too much; People will eventually think of keeping their names and serials (most About windows show them, after all). However, once they reinstall from a crash or what-have-you, they'll find out why it's not that simple... when they're told those serials are no longer valid. :>

Sam Hell (#121) - You can probably have both installed, but you might as well only have this one as it's newer and it's essentially the same program anyway.

I'm never one to knock free stuff, and I think it's fantastic that someone from the actual company is taking time to field questions and offer answers.
However, from my own (painful and time-consuming) experience I've learnt that if there's one piece of software that any computer user should be prepared to pay for, it is a solid and easy-to-use backup program.
When Vista is no longer a Beta product I might consider buying a copy and using the built-in backup features. Until then (and probably even after then) I will continue to use the absolute best program for all my backup needs...Acronis' True Image.
And, no, I don't work for them, don't get free copies, have no dog in the fight whatsoever. I just know that it works, does everything you could want it to do and then some, is extremely user-friendly and intuitive, and gives you total control over everything from recovering a single file to incremental backups to making a complete clone of your hard drive(s) for reinstallation/upgrade.
As I said, props to any company that give up their wares for nothing AND takes the time to respond to questions with answers.
However, the $40 I spent on True Image has been the best cashola I ever put into ANY computing hardware or software. Trust me, when it all goes wrong (and it will, especially if you like to "tinker" or install and uninstall software) you want the quickest, easiest solution to status quo available. I have been back up and running in less than 15 mins (from an external USB SATA drive) on a HD with 20 gigs of OS/apps/vids/mp3s/photos etc. as if nothing had ever happened. Warm and comfy feeling indeed.
Just my 2 cents' worth.
Thanks GOTD for the continued service.

Cheryl, the rep probably didn't answer because your question was already answered:
Your backups are always available, regardless of whether or not the license is only for a year. If you don't believe me, you just have to reread some of the posts here.

I came back to see if I had an answer and it appears the Company Rep never revisited?? So much for thanking them. Once again...the issue is on Terms and Conditions:

I was reading the Terms and Conditions and would like a clarification.

It says that this is just a 1 year license…so what happens after the year is up?

If the back-up is only accessible for 2007, I need to know before I use it.

I'd REALLY like an answer, please.

Hi,

I read somewhere in Microsoft's site that ussing Export to backup the entire regitry is not reliable. Microsoft recommends to use NTBackup and backup the 'System state'. I have been looking for the place where I saw that, but I don't have much time.

On the other hand regedit's help says that to backup the entire registry you just Export it.

Microsoft confuses me many times...

Thanks so much for this wonderful program, GAOTD! I've been on a mission to find a good backup program in the last weeks, and voila. And thanks so much, Alexandra, for your presence here. It speaks so well of your company's integrity and customer care.

I'm having a problem that clearly is my own, and any feedback would be appreciated.

I can't seem to be able to define "source" so that it backs up what I've specified. I only wish to back up My Documents and everything in the My Documents folder, only. I completed backup, and noticed there was way more backed up on my external drive than exists in My Documents. So I checked the drive's contents, and East-Tec seems to have backed up Program Files, and lots of other stuff I didn't define as part of the task. When I go to Source and only check My Documents, the following path gets automatically checked: C:/Documents and Settings/My name/My Documents. None of the files within the folders except for My Documents is checked, and I'm assuming it has to create a path. However, it looks like what's happening is all files within these automatically-checked folders are being backed up, even though files within them are not being checked. How do I simply check and back up the folder My Documents without this happening? I feel prety silly as this shouldn't be difficult. It backed up everything like a charm. The problem is, I don't need it all, and only want to back up the one folder. It's huge enough.

Hope I explained this clearly, and thanks!

Pamela

i dont beleive retreiving data will be a probem in case of system meltdown as it is purely a backup. all the files you are backing up are in a duplicate directory on your backup drive.

Alexandra or BladedThoth Or some serious reviewer familiar with tonight's offering: a silly lo-tech question from a silly lo-tech guy:

I have Titan Backup already, Would there be a problem installing this ALSO? on WXP-SP2? I ask because I have East eraser, am pleased, and East offer of di$count upgrade or replacement for lucky GOTD users is a Sweet Deal! But I will not have time tonight to dl AND test. Concerned mainly about possible conflicts with shared components? Or maybe eventual uninstall of Titan as both have been deemed identical?

Please respond and thank you in advance.
Belated thanks to GOTD as well, beers to you!

I can only recall one time in past four or five months that the "readme" file did not say all that is needed to be said regarding installation and activation. Stuff the drivel please.

Thank you GAOTD - I downloaded Titan Backup for one machine but forgot to load it to my other in time - now I have downloaded East-Tec instead and I have the same program on both machines (just a different skin) and as I have been using Titan since I got it I will be very happy to start using East-Tec from today.

I almost forgot - well done Alexandra for answering all the questions thrown at you. Wish all companies would do the same - I will recommend this program to others.

Hello everyone!

There will not be any review today, since I've had a couple of problems with today's software. I'll be sending East-Tec an email immediately after this post and will post my review, once I get a response from them.

For what it's worth, these are the errors that I received.

While creating a task, I received an error message as follows:

etBackup.exe - Bad Image
The application or DLL C:\Windows\system32\RICHED20.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette.

After rebooting, then attempting to create another task:

The program hung on "Select files and folders," and I had to close the program down, using the Task Manager.

So there we have it and we'll see what East Tec has to say about it. ;)

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

I'm an olde DOS user who backs up things as I go whenever I remember to. I often forget nowadays, too. However, I don't use my home computer for business or much of anything else very critical. I have occasionally had to reinstall Windows and didn't have backups of my settings. But this was okay, since I had time to reset them. I keep copies of all my downloads and any keys. This works okay for me, but I don't recommend it to others.

I have tried a few backup utilities over the years, but always fell back into my old habits. :-) So here's my unexpert thoughts after trying this program:

1) It installed and ran without any incidents on WinXP. 2) It had a simple, wizard-like layout that seemed easy to use. 3) Backed-up zip files are easy to access, so restoring files is no problem even without this program. 4) Even the registry information was stored in standard ".reg" files that are also easily restored by double-clicking on them.

Overall, this seems like a very good program which I hope I can get used to using more often. I wouldn't buy it for my limited needs as of now, but I would consider buying it if I had such a need. Unfortunately, I can't state how well it compares to other backup programs for obvious reasons. But I can say that I like it, so thanks East Technologies and GOTD for a good program.

To save Outlook messages:

Create a folder to store messages in.
Put a shortcut onto the desktop.
Drag and drop all messages you wish to save into the folder.
Delete the messages in Outlook.

I keep all my SENT messages in dated folders on the hard drive and just double click the message for it to open in Outlook. Dead easy and it works.

Continued from 94:

To be 100% clear: I don't take issue with the fact that you have an open source alternative. That's great. What I take issue with is the fact that you harass an employee of the company who is gracious enough to come here to answer customer service questions, when no such free service is required per the terms of the license agreement. Do you get free customer service and quick answers from Open Source developers? And if so, do you harass them that there's a paid for alternative that works better?

My solution: Which I do as a habit before installing new software
Click Start -
Run -

Unless I'm missing something, my concern in this case would be as briefly discussed before. When you need to back way down and restore your system from scratch with a backup, it would no longer work because you would no longer be registered. So having a backup that you can't access does little good except make you lose hair and enamel from your teeth. Unless there is some way to restore your 1-day registration. And I don't see how you could do that.

Having said that though, I have heard good things about other products from East-Tec, and my initial view would be that this one is probably equally as capable.

I have recently been trying to find an easy way to do my total backup and I must say this is by far easier than even the one in XP and a heck of a lot faster than StorageSync that came with my external drive.

StorageSync took 24 hours but I could access anything in the backup files; XP took 2 hours but the files are not accessable.

East-Tec Backup 2007 is the best I have found. I was able to backup 14 gig in under an hour and can access every file that is backed up to my external drive!

Thank you for a wonderful product!

I loved how easy Titan Backup (Giveaway of the Day, 7-30-07) was to use and now East-Tec Backup 2007 will be too, since they're the same product. However, I uninstalled Titan Backup because it would only back up the Registry for Outlook Express (Accounts, Mail, Settings, and Sigs). That is, it did *not* back up the entire Registry, which is what I require in any backup utility.

Please double-check to make sure you're backing up what you THINK you're backing up . . . after using this or any other backup utility.

CAN SOMEONE RESPOND TO #47. What is the difference between Titan backup and East backup? Is one necessarily better than the other??

Alexandra -- You should try 7zip's compression libraries. Includes AES encryption, support for volumes, and much larger compressed files. Not sure how complicated the licensing thing is.

If you 'buy' 2 copies of this for 2 computers, you could buy Acronis to work on 3 computers for the same price and have an image backup as well as files.

About #45. You can easily backup the registry:

1. Click Start> Run. Type in Regedit to open the Registry Editor. Click on File>Export to back up Registry to the directory and file name you choose.
And/or--

2. Install Backup from the Windows XP Home Edition CD-ROM.
See: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;q302894
Or download ntbackup.msi from http://www.onecomputerguy.com/software/ntbackup.msi,

3. Click Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Backup.
4. Click on Backup Wizard Advanced..
5. When the Wizard opens, click Next. Under Select What You Want to Back up, click on Only back up the System State data.
This will save Bootfiles and the Registry.

East-Tec Backup and Titan Backup are the same product. This is the result of a partnership between EAST Technologies and Neobyte Solutions.
