For me - too much, too little use 3 stars by arnvid442 Jun 18, 2016 (Read all my 2 reviews)
Used a fair number of software for backup, and purchased this for more than a year ago - but have hardly used it. Sorry, I want to use my time on doing what I do, not finding out all options on a tool that should make life easier 4 me. Getting rid of it now, and go for a better tool that I'm sure I will find here on snapfiles. show Review details
Perfect, but two little problems 5 stars by TwoEars Nov 13, 2009 (Read all my 26 reviews)
I have been using BackUp4All pro since 2 years with perfect pleasure. It is easy to use, complete while keeping things simple. But I have two little problems. The first one is that unless you took care to save the software configuration files themselves, using the program itself, there is no easy way to restore the configuration files manually. I could not find in the complete help system any indication of which and where about the various config files. I had difficulties re-installing all the jobs after changing my computer. IMHO, config files should be all at the same place, possibly and preferably in the software directory itself for easy retrieval. The second trouble is the lack of history track on the web site of the developers. I had a rather old version and was unable to find what was change since then. show Review details
Thumbs-up to the Romanians! 5 stars by yassertariq Nov 21, 2007 (Read all my 90 reviews)
A wonderful application, it has all the features necessary for a backup-utility. It can even backup "open" files. If a backup-utility can backup Agnitum's Outpost then it's a worthy download. And Back4all did that! show Review details
Its worth every penny! 4 stars by PeteJust Nov 13, 2005 (Read all my 3 reviews)
I am using Backy4All for about two years now, and I never had any serious problem with it. I have seen and tested others and I wasted a lot of time. But this software surprised me. It has a nice interface, and most of the features make sense (no unnecessary gadgets) and really are working. Its quite effective and not very difficult to configure backups: filters works as it should, before and after actions are handy, Backup logs are detailed enough and most important, you can rely on you backups. Whenever I needed support I first of all got an answer, second it was to the point, and third the response came within an reasonable time. show Review details
Lacks two important features 2 stars by dirtnap Jun 15, 2005 (Read all my 19 reviews)
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. show Review details
The software developer responded to this review on Jun 17, 2005: 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.
