Editors' review

FBackup efficiently creates backups of your entire computer with just a few clicks through its streamlined and intuitive interface. Especially if you don't want something fancy with a lot of extra features, this is a good option to consider.

Pros

Process guide: When you select New Backup from the program's main menu, a wizard will open in a new window to guide you through the process. There are also links to relevant Help topics in every window, so you can get more information to help you make decisions about which option to select in certain situations.

Many options: As you work through the steps to create your backup, you'll have a lot of choices to make. For instance, you can opt for a Full Backup or a Mirror Backup, and you can decide whether you'd like to encrypt your backup and protect it with a password or not. There are also options for backing up automatically on a specific day and at particular intervals that you set so you don't always have to remember to do it manually. You can also test the backups you've created to ensure that they'll work when you need them to.

Cons

No advanced features: In order to get advanced features like Incremental Encryption, AES Encryption, and the option to backup to FTP, you have to upgrade to a paid program from this developer. While this won't be a problem for novice users, those with more experience could be bothered by the lack of advanced options.

Bottom Line

FBackup is a smooth and streamlined free program that lets you make basic backups quickly and easily. It walks you through the process nicely, so you don't have to have any technical know-how to take advantage of all the program has to offer. But if you're looking for power features, you might be disappointed.

    "Free software is good, but too simple."

    Version: FBackup 5.0.396

    Pros

    1. Support network backup.
    2. Easy to use.

    Cons

    Lack of many important functions:
    No incremental backup (That's untolerable, if use mirror or full method, i can simply use a sync tool)
    No encryption.

    If I need "full backup", I can simply use 7zip/winrar/windows zip. If I need to "mirror" a directory, I can simply use a sync tool.
    Yes it's free, but useless free.

    Summary

    I have uninstalled it ...
