I had the same problem and posted below as "Hopeful". I didn't get a response and decided to contact you at your support page. However, I fill out all the fields and attach my screen shots, fill in the numbers and click Submit button. Nothing happens - the form just sits there and is not submitted. I've tried with different browsers. Could you just pass along an email address instead? Thanks.

I'm very impressed with Exiland Backup Standard 4.6. It's simple, straightforward to configure, lightning fast, very light on system resources. Above all, I find it syncs folders and files correctly. The graphic user interface is very pleasant, even allowing the use of good old Aero transparency. Thank you Exiland and GOTD.

Nice. I have been looking for a decent easy to use zip backup program, and this seems to fit the bill. So many others have a proprietary format holding your backup hostage. Now I should be able to stop using a 6 year old abandoned zip format program!

Michael Vashin (Exiland Software),

Thank you for the offer, but I am not sure I have use of all the Pro bells & whistles... and if I decide to buy licenses for Standard, I will have to pay as much or more for one Pro for my 2-3 PCs. :)

Question though - does it use shadow copying (or whatever it is called) to zip/backup open files?

Really love your program.

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

mahaal,

There are two variants:

1) You can purchase 1 license of Professional. The Professional edition runs as a Windows service in background and allows you to copy files from multiple PCs in local network. Tasks are performed sequentially, one after another.

2) You can purchase 2-3 licenses of Standard and install them on 2-3 PCs. Each instance of the program will copy files from own PC and save backups to a network drive, for example. Tasks are performed in parallel.

If you have small amount of data, it is better to use 1 Pro license.

The program doesn't support shadow copying. So, it can't copy locked files. Hovewer, it copies open office files (such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc) well.

dan,

You can try to install the program on a thumb drive, but for these purposes there is a Portable version of Exiland Backup Standard (does not require installation). GiveAwayOfTheDay allows you to download only typical installation (i.e. setup.exe).

You can purchase Exiland Backup Standard 4.7 on our website and download Normal or/and Portable as you wish. License Key is not limited by time. All new versions and updates are free of charge!

A WORD OF CAUTION: The program has a built-in scheduler to run backups automatically at specified times. To do this, the program needs to start when Windows start so that when the scheduled time arrives, the backup can start. If you do not want to use scheduled backups, preferring to run backups manually, you do not need to start the program when Windows starts.

There is an option during the setup (Create shortcuts) to choose whether you wish to have the program start when Windows starts. The option is on the Create shortcuts screen, the one that determines if a shortcut is placed on the Desktop. The default is to start with Windows. If you do not wish to run the program at Windows Startup, you can un-check the option, however even if you turn that option off, when you go into Settings, General tab, you will see that the option to start with Windows (near the bottom of the display) is checked. I found that even after un-checking that option, then setting up a Backup profile and running it manually, that when I went back into the Settings, the option was turned back on again. I do not understand why the program behaves in this manner when no profile is set up to be run based on a schedule. Also, even though no backup profile is set for a schedule, when the program is exited, it reminds the user that the program needs to remain running in the background for scheduled backups, and with an offer to Close, or minimize to the System tray. Just a heads up for those that do not want extra programs taking up resources unnecessarily.

Gary, in addition it should be possible to use the built in windows task sceduler in conjunction with the "Ability to run tasks from the command line" and avoid having to have the program run at startup to schedule backup tasks.at all unless you need some triggers not catered for by the windows task sceduler.

Gary,

If you ucheck the "[ ] Launch the program automatically at Windows startup" option, the program will delete
Startup Shortcut from the "Startup" folder in Windows.

You can perform configured backup tasks from the command using the Task Manager in Windows (not using built-in scheduler).

I experienced the same. Although I have definitely disabled the "start with Windows" option, it tried to set it as auto-start. (Luckily, my security software informed me about it.)

M. H.,

As I understand it, you uncheck the option "[ ] Launch the program automatically at Windows startup", click "OK" , then restart the program, open the settings window again and you see that this option is set and the shortcut is exilast in the Startup folder on disk?
I understand correctly?

I always like to see if there is documentation, especially if it's in .PDF format. Here's the page for online Documentation: https://exiland-backup.com/help/. There's a PDF image in the top right-hand corner; hover over it to see "PDF Manual for print," and click to download.

I also like to check to see if a backup (or imaging) program offers an option to verify a backup (or image) after it's performed; I'm happy to report that Exiland Backup offers this option.

Further to my comment, I have tried it and like it very much BUT when I tried to back up a whole drive it only did half — roughly half the directories appear in the zip. Can you please explain?
Also I do not understand about notifying. What does that mean? What is notified and when and is it necessary. I am alone and not on a network. Thanks in advance.

Laxative,

If you copy the whole disk with the operating system, for example, C: \, then many OS files are used by the system itself and can not be copied. To copy the entire C drive, use another programs to create an entire disk image.

You can use Exiland Backup to copy file stores, for example, D:\, F:\ .. Network files, flash drives, website files via FTP/SSH, and etc.

It is a great pleasure to see a giveaway with virtually no complaints, with praises, and above all the developer answering all queries and problems (there are always some people who have problems even with a perfect programme).
For this reason I have downloaded it (which I do not do when there are serious complaints) but have not yet had time to test it, but from the comments I am sure it will be worthwhile.

GOTD team, I appreciate all the that you do and I just want to make a suggestion.

So often, as with this giveaway today, the length/type of license being offered is not stated and has to be inquired about. I would, respectfully, ask that you consider adding in the blue box where you show "System Requirements:, Publisher:, Homepage:, File Size:, Price:" another category reading something like "Type of License:" which would then be filled in with '6 mos or 1 year or lifetime with full updates or lifetime with no updates or lifetime with updates to current version only, etc'. Or some verbiage of that nature, I am sure you get the point.

Adding this as a standard would alleviate users having to ask this question, as occurred here today and happens so very often. Just a thought. Thanks for your consideration.

And thank you to Exiland and, again, the GOTD team for this offering.

1. Yes, of course.
2. timestamps - modification date of files? Yes, the program "remembers" the modification date of files during copying and restores them when restoring the files from a backup.

Not the creation dates?

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

Bob,

The program doesn't analyze creation dates, because creation date is changed when you copying file from one folder to another. You can test it itself. The creation date means nothing.

Exiland Backup analyzes "modification date" of files and the "archive bit" of files (optional)

Reply   |   Comment by Michael Vashin (Exiland Software)  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+4)

Michael Vashin (Exiland Software),

Programs like Unreal Commander copy creation date as well. MS Explorer does not. I prefer UC way. I like to know that file was modified since creation. This information is lost after restore with modified date only preserved. Backup program should not change this attribute.

We can make saving the "Сreation date" attribute for Local/Network copying in future versions of Exiland Backup. However, the FTP protocol does not allow you to know the "Сreation date" (only the Modification date).

When installing the program, you can specify the path C:\Program Files ..., if you want, but we offer "C:\Exiland Backup Standard" to place the WorkingFolder inside the folder C:\Exiland Backup Standard (not far in the user profile like "C:\Users\\Local\Temp\Exiland Backup Standard\WorkingFolder". Unfortunately, the folder "C:\Program Files" does not have permission to write files.

Laxative,

It is not recommended to move the folder manually from one place to another after the typical installation, although the program will work fine.

Exiland Backup Standard is distributed as both Typical installation (i.e. setup.exe) and Portable (installation is not required).

Giveaway is distributed only as Typical installation.

The Portable version contains the program files that you can unpack to any folder on your disk and then, you can run the "ExilandBackup.exe" file.

Could not find any option to create restore boot media.
Without that not much point in backup software as I want to be able to restore a complete system, not have to reinstall the OS first then the files. Would also require a copy of Exiland to access the backed up files and that won't be free by then.
For secondary PCs will stick to Windows backup and keep installation media on hand to use the 'Restore from Backup' option.
Main PC has Paragon 2015

Tony Carr,

Exiland Backup is a file backup solution. You might set it up to keep current backup copies of your work, docs etc. That would take less time & resources than a complete image backup, protecting stuff that cannot be easily replaced. You would, & IMHO should use image backups too, but to protect everything else, and since that stuff doesn't change that often, there's no need to do it every day, let alone multiple times a day, if you've got everything that does change backed up using something like Exiland Backup.

Jum,

Many people really like Exiland Backup. May be, after a while we will giveaway the Exiland Backup Professional. You can download Exiland Backup Professional (demo) from program's website
https://exiland-backup.com/backup-download.html

The demo version of Exiland Backup Professional has the following limitation: task scheduling is not available and you can run tasks only manually, by clicking the "Run" button in the program. In all other aspects, the demo version is a fully functional version. To be able to set up automatic execution of backup tasks (task scheduling), you must purchase the full version.

Download was very straightforward as was the installation. Exiland Backup has a nice clean and uncluttered GUI. Setting up your backups couldn't be simpler, degrees in rocket science not needed for this software. Backup times vary on the the size of your backup, but overall works very well. Thanks to GOTD and Exiland Software for today's excellent, hassle free give away. Wish all GOTD software was as easy to download and install ... Maybe one day.

What makes this program ideal for business/enterprise level backups? Does it allow application aware processing for active directory, SQL server, Exchange, etc? Why would I use this over Zerto, Veeam, or Avamar for business?

Tyler Elston,

Of course, our program is small, light and does not hold out to such monsters as Acronis, Veem, etc., but it copies files quite well. As for MSSQL, it has its own backup tools.

Ootje,

Of course, you can use it for personal use.

Michael Vashin, I believe Ootje was asking if Business use was allowed and just typed the wrong thing?

Ootje,

You can also use Exiland Backup Standard from GOTD for Business, if you want.

Website indicates that the current version is 4.7 but this giveaway is for 4.6?

Reply   |   Comment by Steve Cee  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+15)

Steve Cee,

You're right. Version 4.7 was released recently and it almost does not differ from version 4.6. It contains minor changes compared to the previous version 4.6.

Changelog here: https://exiland-backup.com/backup-history-std.html

A couple of questions. How long is the licence and what happens when licence expires?

Reply   |   Comment by Hugh Copeland  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+23)

Hugh Copeland,

You can use Exiland Backup received from GIVEAWAYOfTheDay until the program will be reinstalled.

If you purchse the program then your license is not limited in time. This means that your license will never expire. Moreover, all future updates are already included in the price.

Best Regards,

Michael Vashin,

So, it is safe to assume that practically it is a lifetime license?

Reply   |   Comment by consuella  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

consuella,

Yes, lifetime license.

Michael Vashin, can we update to the CURRENT version and not lose the giveaway license? Seeing as 4.7 is not a future update version but the current version.

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

TK,
Unfortunately, you can't download version 4.7 because giveaway license includes only version 4.6
You do not need to update the program to version 4.7 because the version 4.7 was released recently and it almost does not differ from version 4.6. It contains minor changes compared to the previous version 4.6 (non-critical update).

If you decide to purchase Exiland Backup, I will offer you a discount (contact me using feedback form on program's website). License is lifetime, all future updates are included in price.

Vashin Michael (Exiland Software), 4.7 maybe a non-critical update to you but seem fairly important to not have shutdown errors bug to me... and the clean up of partialy completed jobs that are cancelled before completion and the garbage collector...

The fact those problems existed in the giveaway build prevented me from wanting to install a known flawed version 4.6 that had already been superceeded by a more stable version.

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

TK,

With a high probability, you would not notice those problems in version 4.6, which were solved in version 4.7. These solutions apply only to abnormal situations that occur rarely and mostly in the Professional version.

It so happened that during the preparation of version 4.6 in GIVEAWAY, we released version 4.7.
