I'm a little confused about the install of this program. I was at the last step when it says something about installing this program on a different drive then where your files are stored...

So if I want files on my C:/ to be backed up - does that I mean I need a different hard drive to install this program on?

I might have misunderstood this - and if you can help out - I would appreciate it.

Thank you

This software is ok for backing up a single machine, but if you have a more complex setup and want to backup a network device you need to have a drive mapped to the resource before you can back it up. I need to be able to backup data on hidden network shares and this won't do it as you can only access 'My Computer' devices.

For a freeware alternative try Cobian Backup 8 (which does do network resources).

The program works great on XP pro. 12.5 gigs backed up in just 10 minutes. Some trouble downloading. None of my download programs seemed able to download with either the Firefox browser or IE 6. I just downloaded it using IE itself. Everything else went smoothly.

Love Titan Backup! Get this one before it's too late! If you're installing over the previous version offered here at GAOTD, don't forget to paste the new serial # from the README file so that you get v2.0 activated.

Backup tasks are a snap. ZIP format means that you don't need Titan to restore your files.

Two dl's, two days in a row . . . you're on a roll GAOTD! Keep 'em coming!

Excellent backup GUI.

Two minor GUI suggestions to developers, both on the Backup Task:
1. I got a popup "Please fill SMTP details in Options window" when I tried to leave the last of the series of Backup Task Properties tabs. Suggestion: Change to "Please fill SMTP details in ..., or alternatively, remove e-mail address you entered in the xxx tab." And make it easy to navigate to these two places (SMTP and e-mail areas)--I found it difficult to find the SMTP screen, and gave up trying to navigate to the first tab with the e-mail address (I finally gave up and had to quit Titan and rerun Titan, and thus had to recreate the task just to change that one item). This wonderfully inviting GUI can be used by less technical people, who likely won't know what SMTP is.

2. On the compression slider, remove "Quality". Also, change the default to middle of slider. High Compression or Low Compression is descriptive of what you're setting. High Quality compression means what? I assumed it was telling me you get a better quality backup, meaning less compression, so I left it at its default and am now waiting for a backup that estimates it will take 23 more hours.

Had the previous version and the new one installed over the old one, with the previous serial key showing. Rebooted, and then went back into the program to change the serial key to the one belonging to today's version. The program then contacted the company's website to verify the new key (which it did). I wasn't sure if the old key would still be valid tomorrow, so I didn't want to take any chances and made sure I put in the new one.

This is on Vista Home Premium. I disabled the "startup with Windows" option because I prefer to just start the program when I want to do a specific backup.

A reminder - when doing a backup of important files, it's always best to back them up to an external drive, a data CD/DVD or a flash drive. Keeping them on your primary hard drive sort of defeats the purpose if everything goes south.

#78. You have lost the plot. Titan backup and Acronis are two totally different operations. Who cares about speed when backups are concerned ( full or partial , the end result, reliability, is of more importance. Speed should not be the critical issue here. I have had Acronis for over 3 years and as I say, it is totally different to this program and I have no use for anything else. Full image restore or full backup = 20 minutes and that is everything. Incremental or differential backups = 11 minutes. Is that slow when I have everything, not just files and folders !! No need to ever install windows again.

Well, I'm done. I used Revo and completely uninstalled. Reinstalled, used the defaults this time. Same problem.

I'm surprised I'm the only person who hit this problem. It's probably because I turned off the Vista access controls on my machine. I got sick of being asked stupid questions that the system ought to have known the answer to, and I always run as a plain user anyway so it was overkill.

So uninstalled, and wait for the next one. I just won't be installing it at 2am this time :-)

Thanks Tapash, I killed it with MSConfig, rebooted, but I get this message:

You have used System Configuration to make changes to the way Windows starts.
System Configuration is currently in Diagnostic or Selective Startup mode.

To start Windows normally and undo the changes you made, select Normal Startup mode on the General tab and restart your computer.

[] Don't show this message or start System Configuration when Windows starts


... and titanbackup.exe still didn't run. I went back in under regedit and found it that way instead, deleted the entry, rebooted ... and I'm afraid it still doesn't work.

Appreciate the pointer though. I did mail the sales guy who posted from the company (#56) as he suggested but haven't had a reply yet. It's getting close to midnight. I'm going to try reinstalling once and then it comes off the machine. If they don't follow up before the GAOTD expires they might as well not bother.

Fortunately I did write some backup software myself a couple of years ago that I'm happy enough with. I right-click a file or directory and select "Cherish". That just saves the filename somewhere. When the backup task runs it gets that list of cherished files and tars them up with the command-line version of tar and writes it to a fixed place. Restoring is just a case of double-clicking the tar file and browsing it with FilZip, and dragging back any files I want to recover. It was only a couple of screens of C code and does the trick for me. Though I was kind of looking forward to trying something a bit more professionally written. (Mine doesn't have a GUI at all. The right-click is pretty much the entire interface...)

Man! This program is the best.
It compressed almost 50 GB into 22 bytes!!!
Can you believe it? Gigabytes in to bytes.
I was extremely impressed with that. It cost like nothing to upload my backup achieve to a website. It took less than 1/2 second using my superb DSL. This is the best program. I highly recommend you download it before time runs out.

OK, here's my story:

Last year I installed a program from this site called Hard Disk Inspector. It told me that my old IBM Thinkpad was failing. I laughed. How can it be failing? It seems to be working just fine.

A few days/weeks later, I install Titan Backup -- you know, just to be safe. I put off backing up everything because, of course, everything was okey dokey. But just in case, I go ahead and do the backup.

A few days later, my IBM gives me the blue screen of death. I'm flabbergasted. But everything was going so well!

I send off the computer to a tech friend and he confirms the Hard Disk Inspector verdict. My good ol' companion was toast.

Here's the good news: thanks to Titan, I retained access to ALL my old files. Sitting on my external hard drive is a mirror of everything significant on my old Thinkpad!!! I could access anything I wanted. Of course I was in love...

Naturally, what I DID lose were registrations. Most of my GOTD software was gone, even though I still had the program files and installs. I learned that really, really nice companies let you back in by giving you registration NUMBERS instead of just letting you sign up that first 24 hours.

While I could access anything on my drive, I couldn't run Titan except as a trial basis. It was one of the programs that went by by (as another user mentioned above. Whoever flamed him didn't understand -- it wasn't the program, but the registration key that was no longer valid).

I've searched and I've searched the net but there is no other program as useful and friendly as Titan backup. I love it. The $40 bucks hasn't exactly been burning a hole in my pocket though. So I jumped for joy when I saw today's giveaway.

Along with Evernote, Integrydesk, Wirechanger and SearchGT, this is one of the programs I've received here that I work with all the time and would gladly pay for. Like I said, the ONLY thing that held me back was the price. I thought I would have at least a little while to come up with another backup prog for the new machine.

And now Titan is back!!! I'm thrilled. I love the interface, I love the capabilities, I love the simplicity for a guy who is a writer and not a total techie.

To the creators of Titan, thanks a LOT for this!!! And for anybody who is seeking a backup but doesn't want to get bogged down in complexity, this is your answer. Grab it while you can!

to #16 G : with vista do the following to resolve the issue : it is the startup program that is killing you. disable any startup named "luncher" manufactured by neobytes . the problem should resolve . otherwise allow titan backup to your exclution list or DATA EXECUTION PREVENTION. IT CAN find it in system protection. THIS IS A VERY NICE SOFTWARE FOR DATA BACKUP.

Very happy with Titan from the last Giveaway...even better now that it has no 4GB limit :) Thx GAOTD & Neobyte for this free offering today.

Installed with no problems over the previous version; but as noted, you have to enter the new serial no. for ver. 2.0 & restart/allow firewall access for it to take effect. Nice.

The previous version was great. I set it to copy complete C Drive every third day to the same backup file.That has restored things that
restore failed to bring back. Titan Backup has repaired a crippled system for me twice. The speed of Titan Backup is about 4 times as fast as Acronis True Image. I keep 3 separate backup progs.on my machine
I have tried many backups, and Titan Backup is one that I do intend to keep
I was afraid that something had been lost from the last version and quibbled over getting the new version.
Titan Backup copyed 23 GB in an hour, and only passed over 300MB of copying the complete C drive.

Won`t work with ME , so a downgrade for me ,If you use use it to back up your registry regulaly, you`ll have more than 5 choices to return to.

If unit will run in safe mode then locked files can be backed up (press F8 key whilst rebooting and find out!) remember only master DVD drive will operate in this mode though!but not sure if it could record (burn) in this mode. if not , make a copy of file and rename whilst in Safe mode it will burn in windows now

For security obsessed , the ability to encrypt backed up data would seem invaluable but don`t forget the password!

Glad I didn't... :)

Anyway the GUI of Titan Backup looks more attractive.
Superb program.

(If I only had it a couple of days ago when I had a hard drive failure and my image wasn't up to date)
Using this *and* an image making program (like *Seatools* which is a free version of Acronis -for those who have a Maxtor/Seagate drive) should do the trick.

I thought this would be great for a few items that I don't otherwise have an easy way to save. I don't want the sledgehammer, and this seemed just right.

But the first thing I wanted to save is my Firefox settings. It doesn't see I have it installed on my system, however. This is just a wild guess, that it's because I don't save it in the default location?

#70, Robert: You're not spoiling the party. Titan and East-Tec Backup are the same product, as a result of a partnership between EAST Technologies and Neobyte Solutions; this was explained when East-Tec was a GotD on 9/3/07 :)

However, East-Tec has not been given away since then, whereas Titan Backup 2.0 is the very latest version.

I have to say that everyone should be told about this program! For years, people have been asking me what they should use for backups, and I've never been able to recommend anything because all the backup programs were too confusing and too unwieldy for them to comprehend and use. This program is perfect for them! It's straightforward, intuitive, it does what it looks like it's doing. Of course, they won't know what zip compression is, and stacked and incremental backups will be incomprehensible subjects, but the program doesn't really force them to make those decisions. My congratulations to this software company - and thanks GOTD.

IMPORTANT FYI....I had version 1.1 previously installed on comp. After installing and activating program I reviewed "About" to verify program registered correctly. Program showed registered to GiveAwayOfTheDay and the serial# section was populated BUT the serial# listed was different than the serial# shown in today's zip's 'read me' file and the activation notification.
The serial# shown was probably from previous activation of ver1.1. I selected the 'Change Serial' button in the "About" window and input the new serial# given today and program re-registered without a problem.
If you had a previous version of this program registered(even if yyou uninstalled it before this) you may want to verify the serial# listed is today's serial#. Not sure if not updating serial# would effect anything one way of the other but no point in finding out your program doesn't work tomorrow because the old serial# is not valid for ver 2.0.

#36 BladedThoth

The one feature that should be incorporated is the capability to still use stack backups (backup the items, leaving the old files on for versioning), and incremental backups. It would make most sense for stacking if you are only versioning changed files for space issues.

Just being curious:
Do you know a program that supports this feature?

Reply   |   Comment by ~ Robert ~  –  15 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

if your drive crash, how to restaure if you don't have Titan backup anymore? I found the answer quite easily:
if you want to keep the setup for later, download it here, download the official one from the website, disconnect internet,run the official setup, enter the GOTD key,put a name you want and keep it, ask for activation,manual activation,reconnect internet,open web page,enter the antibot code and next,get the activation key and keep it,finish the registration by enter the activation key.
Then, you will not fear to lose your config anymore.
As always, don't distribute it. it's a personal backup ;)

Sorry for jumping in so late, but... Thank you, GOTD, for this even-better-than-usual giveaway! I was hoping you would offer it so I could use it on my new computer.

The previous version of Titan was my favorite among shareware backup utilities when I reviewed them in post #40 (7 October 2007) of my utilities blog. (The nearest freeware alternative that I know of is Cobian Backup.)

#43 and others: This program has synchronization functionality, but is primarily for file and folder backups. If you're looking for a synchronization tool, check my reviews in posts #27, #28 , and #58 (and stay tuned for an upcoming further follow-up).

Re #40: you mix up two things: a) were do you store your data, and b) how do you store or synchronise your data between the hard disk in your PC and the backup hard disk. Skydrive offers you a virtual hard disk (a), todays GAOD offers you the software (b).
My Outlook pst files are about 5 GB, my upload DSL speed is max 500 kbps = 50 KBps (counting overhead bits, retransmissions etc). 5 GB = 5.000 MB = 5.000.000 KB. My daily backup will take 5.000.000/50 = 100.000 sec = 100.000/3.600 hours = 27.777... hours. So I will have to move to a slower revolving planet than Earth. Or I will have to switch to another mail system, but the boss will not like that. It will take even more time if you realise that 1 KB = 1.024 byte in stead of 1.000. Skydrive is fine for simple docs, but not for everything.

One simple question:

Is this a system backup tool for Windows?

That is, do you boot to media that then backs up your whole drive, or is it simply a file backup utility that runs in the "tray" as some have indicated?
