Editors' Review

+

Next to antivirus protection, regular backups may be the single most important measure you should take to protect your PC, your data, and yourself, yet studies consistently show it's the preventative measure PC users neglect most. There is simply no excuse for not backing up your system, especially when you consider the following facts: (1) You have a lot of money invested in your hardware and software; (2) Your PC most likely contains files, records, and archives that are important to your life and well-being; (3) something is certain to go wrong; and (4) backups are easy, especially with excellent free backup utilities like FBackup around to do all the work for you. You can schedule regular backups, of course, but you can also choose full or partial backups, levels of compression, drive mirroring, backups of specific folders or files, and much more. It creates standard ZIP files that you can access with any compression utility.

FBackup is based on Backup4all, Softland's flagship product and a powerful backup solution. However, for most users, the freeware utility is more than enough. With a simple two-part interface and a wizard that explains each step, it's about as user friendly as backup utilities get. You can choose either an external device (recommended) or a network location to store your backup.

FBackup is free, and it's ready for Windows 7. It makes regular backups painless, and it produces high-quality backups that will help you recover your system quickly when, not if, something unpleasant occurs.

"Excellent Utility for Backing Up to External Drives"

June 29, 2010  |  By pskandel

 |  Version: FBackup 4.4.207

Pros

Flexible scheduling options, ability to connect to external drives, easy to select which files to backup, easy software update process.

Cons

None. It's a perfect mix of functionality and ease of use. Excellent product.

Summary

I've used a few of these types of programs, but this is the best by far. Easy to use, excellent and simple functionality, and flexible enough to backup what I need, automatically add what I create, and do it all in the background. Perfect!

"Simplicity is the key"

June 28, 2010  |  By lastofthegroovy

Pros

Simple to use and it works. I've tried several other free backup software packages and none of them have worked for the simple task of backing up my C drive.

Cons

None that I have found - it works.

Summary

Simple to use. Nothing to figure out and it works. I like it.

"Works exactly as described, a plain no-frills backup."

June 06, 2010  |  By Bob_WA

 |  Version: FBackup 4.4.207

Pros

Not too many options, hardly need to read the manual. A mirror backup is exactly that, your entire file structure is reproduced making it easy to search. (Assuming you have enough space on your destination drive.)

Cons

Log file is VERBOSE. At the end it might tell you there was an error or warning on one file, but the details are buried in reams of text.

Summary

Trick I found was a text search for "error(s)" and "warning(s)"
Use the parentheses exactly as written. Otherwise there are far too many file names that use the words error or warning.

May 31, 2010  |  By ace58

Pros

simple to configure, specially with the available add-ons. relatively fast operations.
