Editors' Review


Ascomp's BackUp Maker is a free data backup solution for Windows. It automatically backs up your files and folders on schedule or when something changes, and it can create new backups or add changes to existing backups. It doesn't create system images, so it can't restore your entire system, though Windows Backup already does that. What it's best for is backing up critical files and folders on a daily basis. BackUp Maker Standard Edition is fully functional freeware that displays a nag screen at startup and when backups complete.

BackUp Maker's user interface shows prominent Backup and Restore buttons above a compact list view for displaying available backups. The program offers two modes, a wizard-based beginner's mode and an expert mode with more control; basically, the expert mode uses 12 steps for what the beginner mode does in five. Both begin with Step 1, Data Selection, with two options: Simple selection, which groups data by Libraries, Bookmarks, and Email, and Files & Folders, which let us directly select items to back up from a tree view and program list. BackUp Maker also offers Filter Options for excluding files, including by size; Automation, for triggering backups after intervals, on system events such as log-on, and by day and month; Execution guarantee, which lets you tell the program how to catch up on skipped or missed backups; Backup type, for specifying full or differential backups; and other settings such as Security and Procedures. BackUp Maker can save backups to a variety of destinations, including CD/DVD burners, FTP clients, and IntelliVault accounts. We chose the separate hard drive we use for system backups, selected our backup type and other settings, named our backup, and saved the backup definition. When we were ready, we selected our backup in the list view and pressed Execute. BackUp Maker quickly created our backup, and just as quickly (and automatically) restored our files when we ran the Restore tool.

We still recommend regularly creating full system image backups using Windows Backup or a similar program. BackUp Maker's best use is protecting critical data from loss or damage with robust, regular backups.

"Very flexible and Fun to use"

August 13, 2015

 |  Version: BackUp Maker 7.100


Backup Schedule is very flexible. You can setup any many schedule as you want and each schedule can have their own backup preference. You can have full backup. You can just backup changes since last full backup. Also you can backup changes since last partial backup

It is very user friendly and guide you from step to step.

Backup speed is pretty fast.

The unzip file is shown right under the zip file in window explorer. You won't have any problem to locate the file.

The log file is a good tool to check if the backup is okay or not. Make sure the Number of "to be backup" files/directories is exactly the same as the number of "Backed up" file


I experience some backup zip file which cannot be opened by WINRAR. This problem is easy to solve. Just download 7zip (free software) and unzip the file.

The manual should have better example to show what is mean by (a) full back up (b) partial backup after full back up (c) partial backup after partial backup. I need to go to internet to search for help before I know what to choose


Tips to use the software
1. Plan your schedule. In my case, I split the backup into 2 main categories. One is for folder which is unlikely to amend and the other is for folder which I always amend. For those folder which I hardly amend, I don't need to run full backup from time to time. It save me a lot of time.

2. Open the zip file after you run Full Scan and make sure you have no problem to open the zip file. Also visually check say the no of folders in the backup zip files is the same as those in original. You don't want surprise when you need to recover a corrupted file from backup file
