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.

"Not worth the aggravation; support is nonexistent"

September 29, 2015  |  By jbsnews

 |  Version: FBackup 5.4.784

Pros

Great design, works well if and when it works, has a "pause" option, free

Cons

Support is nonexistent; can't register at site to ask questions in their forums [get what you pay for?]. No one responds to emails sent to info@fbackup.com to fix the registration problems, which is shoddy management.

Summary

Nice backup program in theory. Attractive feature is the Pause option, but the program frequently hangs ["not responding"] so the pause option is more of an illusion than a real feature. Program contains bugs. Can't register on the site to ask questions about errors not listed in FAQs or already in the forums. Crashes about once per week and needs to be reinstalled. Not worth the aggravation.
