My primary complaint is that b4all does not automatically update the backup database when files or folders have been deleted from the hard drive; I have had to do this manually...a big hassle. Second, b4all does not offer encryption -- this may not matter to some but that is a deal killer for me.

This is really a malicious comment.
I do not understand why on earth a backup program should delete files or folders from it s backup database. Backup4all marks the files as deleted and keeps the old versions in the database. This is not a synchronization program, it is intended to back up your work. You have automatic clean up features built in to the Type and Advanced page of the Backup Wizard if you want to get rid of obsolete files and folders.
The second remark about encryption is also not true. Backup4all offers ZIP compression and encryption available from the Type page of the Backup Wizard.
