Editors' review

Automating backups for your most important files and folders doesn't have to be difficult or time-consuming thanks to this comprehensive program. We found it once of the best backup programs we've seen.

Automatic Backup Pro uses a step-by-step guide that walks you through the process of backing up your files. As soon as we clicked the Add Profile button, we were asked to select a profile type for backup (files and folders, My Documents, Outlook Express, etc.), select a destination folder, and finally, configure the scheduling. We were able to completely customize our own backup schedule, choosing to back up on a monthly, daily, and even hourly schedule. We were also able to pinpoint a specific time. We opted to backup our My Documents folder to our USB. Once we saved our profile, our backup went on without a hitch. If you don't want to wait for the next scheduled backup, the program includes a Run Now feature that will immediately perform a backup using the selected profile settings.

Help is available through preset FAQs and a Help menu. It also comes with an ample, 30-day trial period. But thanks to this program's easy navigation, users of all skill levels will find it a worthwhile backup program.

    "Finally a flexible back up program for everyone"

    November 29, 2009   |   By eleahy288

    Version: Automatic Backup Pro 9.8.13

    Pros

    I can back up what I want and when I want. Pick what folders you want to back up and where they are to go.

    Cons

    The purchase process is a bit unique. You don't receive a key but instead a link to the a full function program.

    Summary

    This is the first back up utility that I've run across that allows multiple unique back up profiles to run during the week. With this program I can now automatically send important documents and pictures to multiple locations during the week. Other programs may have this feature and I missed it, but that's the point, this program is easy to understand.

    Pros

    Once you set it up, you can forget about it. It does its job.

    Cons

    Originally had a problem that the scheduler did not work, but when I entered the task in Windows Scheduler at the exact time of the schedule of Auto Back Up, it prerformed perfectly. My systems is Windows Vista Home 64 bit.
