    "a great set it and forget it backup program"

    August 13, 2012  |   By kenny555


    You can select folders and exclude anything from same. It backs up very fast. Use turbo mode for the first time, then switch to standard after. The program looks for and makes changes every 8 hours, or you can click manual any time. Restore function is like system restore for files. You can choose to restore a file from various dates.


    Free version only backs up personal files/folders, and not system. Have to upgrade(pay) for that feature. A couple of times it stopped working, and I had to restart the program, but it worked fine after that.


    I use it as a secondary program for backing up personal files/folders. I use Mac Reflect for system image backup. Genie is good for retrieving a file or folder you may need to get in a hurry.
