    "Free no good"

    January 26, 2013  |   By boongsong

    Pros

    Don't know. Wasn't able to use it due to formatting error

    Cons

    I downloaded the free version to see if I would be interested. When I tried to back-up a software file, it would't do it because the CD must be formatted to UDF. Posted a question in SyncBack forum. Was told that only the Pro version will back-up to CDs that haven't been formatted to UDF. Used the link they provided to sites that would re-format to UDF but was told if there were additional downloads included, I was "on my own". Spent 3 days search web and cannot find any place(that I trust) to download the software to re-format my discs. And, the Pro version is too expensive for me, being on a very limited budget

    Summary

    SyncBack might be a good program, but to use the free version as a means of "switching and baiting" by using the UDF formatting to keep anyone from being able to back-up anything.
    Won't buy it and will not recommend to anyone.
