"Simple, easy backup program"

October 10, 2006  |  By shyguy_2004

 |  Version: AKGBackup 1.3

Pros

It is really easy to backup with this program. Simple to use. I like that has the option to compress what you are backing up.

Cons

The only con is that you can't select single files to backup, only folders.

November 24, 2005  |  By BitOfaTechie

Great backup tool; I tried a few programs before finding this one. With InCD running (comes with Nero), I can back up directly to DVD/CD RW.

Cons

None

"Better than claimed by the author"

November 21, 2005  |  By hlbaynes

 |  Version: AKGBackup 1.3

Pros

Easy to install and run. Execellent help file. Very fast.

Cons

I'd like to see it provide for backing up easily on CDs. Note: If you have DLA enabled, it will use CDs effortlessly for the backup media.

"Great easy to use utility"

November 20, 2005  |  By jmb275

 |  Version: AKGBackup 1.3

Pros

Easy to use, cross platform, and stores individual files rather than archives. This makes it really easy to restore using nothing more than a file browser.

"Simple et efficace"

September 27, 2005  |  By boubou50

 |  Version: AKGBackup 1.3

Pros

Excellent programme pour sauvegarder ses donnees sur CD, simple a utiliser et leger (160k)

Cons

Dommage que l'on ne puisse pas programmer de sauvegarde automatique en arriere plan. la seule solution etant de passer par le planificateur de tache de Windows pour ouvrir le programme et de lancer la sauvegarde manuellement.

"One-button backup utility is easy to use, and easy to configure too."

June 25, 2005  |  By Chatters

 |  Version: AKGBackup 1.3

Pros

AKGBackup lets any user back up their files with one click. Since only new and changed files are backed up, backups go very fast. Setup (which you do only once) is also simple. Now there's no excuse for losing files!

As long as you don't use AKGBackup's compression feature, you can recover any lost file just by using Windows Explorer to copy the backup file to the original PC.

Cons

1. If source and backup PCs have different file systems (e.g. NTFS and FAT32), some files that were already backed up may get backed up again (time waster).

2. If, during setup, you choose to compress backup files, only this program can uncompress them. Nothing indicates which backup files are compressed and which are normal files.

3. If, during setup, you choose the "mirror" option, at each backup all files you've deleted from the originals are also deleted from the backups. This can delete the very files you'll later want to recover. And if you use the program's "restore" function while "mirror" is turned on, it will delete all *originals* created since the backup was made!

Note: If you avoid the compression and mirror options, you will not have these problems.

"I have used AKGBackup for almost a year and have found it to be a very reliable"

June 21, 2005  |  By profbill

 |  Version: AKGBackup 1.3

Pros

I have used AKGBackup for almost a year and have found it to be a very reliable program. I backup just over 750 MB of data on a nightly basis. AKGBackup moves all this data over the network both efficiently and effectively. The report feature provides a quick summary of the backup that was done the prior evening allowing me to confirm that the backup was successful.

Cons

I live in the US, the date feature is designed European. When I confirm that the backup was successful, this causes me slight hesitation - though it is not a problem I cannot adjust to (June 2, 2005 is listed 02-06-2005; not 06-02-2005).

"Simple - does what it says it will do and no more"

June 15, 2005  |  By skymeister

 |  Version: AKGBackup 1.3

Pros

A straight forward approach to one button backup, no frills no annoying "extra" features and complexity.

Set your file paths and preferences once. Subsequent backups are a simple one button "backup all" and the program does a speedy backup. No muss, no fuss.

Cons

Have not encountered anything that I don't like.

"Best backup utility I've tried."

June 14, 2005  |  By fpeterg

 |  Version: AKGBackup 1.3

Pros

This application performs as advertised. I've tried many applications and this is by far the best -- mostly because it's simple to use. It's easy to set-up, fast and absolutely stable. I use it in conjunction with Scheduled Tasks to back-up my laptop every night. It performs flawlessly. I highly recommend this application to all my friends.

Cons

The user interface could be better. Usabilty could also be improved. It's too easy to delete a backup job. The backup logs also get pretty fat after a while.
