    "DIDN"T BACKUP ANYTHING - no files only empty folders"

    March 26, 2010  |   By ex_elec_tech


    Nice interface, easy to uninstall. If it had only done the job, it seemed like it might have had the features I wanted, mirror backup, and the choice to not put a lengthy drive to folder pathway into the backup folder.


    DIDN"T BACKUP ANYTHING. Needs add-on xml files to even know how to copy some types of files.


    I was looking for a mirror backup, one that would backup files in uncompressed version, so I tried this. XP OS, backup to external drive. My first test was to backup the Start Menu folder. I thoroughly read the manual. Turned off my antivirus antispyware, then many times tried all sorts of things, choosing mirror backup, uncompressed, even looked for and installed its various plugins so that it might recognize the files to back them up, but nothing, only empty folders and its own config file were placed in the backup location.

    And strange that other backups don't need specific xml plugins to recognize that I want it to copy everything in the directory I specify. But I took that into consideration too, downloading all the plugins I thought might apply. And still no go.

    A complete failure.
