It's too bad 3 stars by gimpguy Aug 19, 2012 (Read all my 1158 reviews)
This could be a top notch software but it's not stable. First install, I could not select folders to sync. After second install, everything was fine, however, I cannot do email or other backups, they are all grayed out. The only one that isn't is the File choosing backup. Other options like sync took forever to analyze some folders, albeit large ones, but still, didn't show me any progress, just said it was searching folders and would do nothing else. I searched tech support, forum, Google, and I can't find my issue. When it comes to contacting support they have no GFI free version listed so not sure that would even work or if there IS support for the free version. Too bad really, this would be a favorite software of mine if it only worked properly. showShow review details
Excellent design, but buggy 3 stars by paul1149 Dec 13, 2010 (Read all my 13 reviews)
This simple program has many desirable features not found in other commercial offerings. If it would do what it advertises, I would have my backup program. The problem is that I keep getting inconsistent and unreliable performance from it, and am now looking for a replacement. The latest issue is that differential backups are not deleting defunct files, leaving the backups large-sized. If GFI would clean up the code a little, this program would go to the very top of the list. showShow review details
Works as advertised 4 stars by reng2010 Aug 15, 2010 (Read all my 2 reviews)
I like it when a program works as advertised right off the bat. I installed the program, created a synchronization task, and ran the task, all within 10 minutes. No fuss, no muss. Compare this with my experience with [...], which failed this simple test! showShow review details
