Editors' Review

+

For all the bells and whistles you get with this backup program, we were shocked to find that it's free. Cobian Backup not only looks good, but it proved to be a very reliable and easy to use backup tool.

The user interface is straightforward, and the colorful command buttons are extremely intuitive. Creating a new backup task was easy, despite all of the configuration options. Basically, all we had to do was create a name, decide what files and folders to include, and create a schedule for the backup. We opted to save important files to our USB, which worked perfectly. We were impressed by the file compression and encryption options that aren't found in many paid programs. The Options menu comes with tons of settings for more advanced file compression, password-protecting the user interface, and even changing the interface's appearance. We were able perform random backups with the click of a button, and likewise, we were able to run multiple backup tasks all at once without any problems whatsoever.

Cobian Backup offers multiple help venues, including an index, a tutorial, and support forums. However, even the most novice users will be able to jump in with very little, if no, guidance. We highly recommend this program for all users.

"Unable to download"

January 15, 2016  |  By shuckie

 |  Version: Cobian Backup 11.2.0.582

Pros

None - appears to be a virus.

Cons

BitDefender attempts to block access to the page as a reported attack page, and when attempting to download the setup file for submission to VirusTotal Firefox also attempted to block it as containing a virus. I overrode both blocks to download the file and upload to VirusTotal but have not attempted to run it. I will delete the file after writing this review.

Summary

I cannot recommend this based upon my experience outlined in the "Cons".

Download CNET staff - please check this file and download location ASAP. Thank you.
