"Excellent Data Back-up Product"
You cannot beat 2BrightSparks SyncBack features:
- Multi job scheduler
- Numerous but user friendly controls
- Simulated backups
- Backups are saved in their original file formats
- Limited tasking on your computer resources
The HTML log is not concise, requiring you to search for errors.
This product was designed for data backup, not system restore.
This product has every bell & whistle to back-up, synchronize or any custom combination of the two you want or need. Other products tried before would not work with my FAT32 file system external HDD. After combing the web, I found SyncBack with its 5-star rating from the CNET Editor and users and am extremely happy I downloaded it.
And now on to the not so glorious features...
Be aware of some errors I experienced: file path is too long or apostrophe in file name.
The HTML report log needs to be rethought. It is nice that a report is generated after each scan but not so nice to search page-by-page for critical or non-critical errors every time.
As mentioned in the Cons section above, this product was not meant nor designed for a system file back-up in the event of a total crash. For 100% duplication and assurance I use SyncBack for my data back-up (My Documents and Desktop) along with Macrium Reflect free edition (and its Rescue CD) for my system files. Your decision, but both of these help me sleep better at night.
