    Summary

    I'll get back to you with what I don't like when I find out something I don't like. Been bout a week now and every night at 11pm it backs up the daily stuff, course I'm sleeping and I won't know if its all that great till I crash, I mean my XP crashes and I need the really important (to me anyway) pics, journals, passwords and songs.

    enough

    I've downloaded tons of freeware, this is the only one that is free and works may should have said that first.

    September 17, 2010  |   By albertafp

    Version: FBackup 4.4.218

    Pros

    Easy to set up, performs scheduled backups. Mirror setting does incremental backups which is very fast

    Cons

    Very minor quibble, can't seem to select multiple files at once to add.

    Summary

    Very fast and efficient, easy to set up. Scheduled mirror backups are all incremental and are fully automatic.

    September 14, 2010  |   By Stan_O

    Version: FBackup 4.4.218

    Pros

    I was able to delinieate the folders and files that I wanted to backup very easlily.

    Cons

    I would like for it to do incremental backups instead of a full backup every time. Very time consuming.

    Summary

    Overall,a good product!

    "Avoid it like AIDS/HIV"

    September 13, 2010  |   By euromatic

    Version: FBackup 4.4.218

    Pros

    Nice interface

    Cons

    Don't work on W7
    Locked on computer
    Don' uninstall properly

    Summary

    It displays a message saying "Wait for Shadow file to be created" and then nothing.
    You wait.
    And when you stop it, surprise : it cannot be stopped !
    and when you kill the process, another surprise : it don't uninstall properly and leave some locked files you cannot delete !!
    Why is it so hard to find a WORKING backup software ?!

    "Good Backup 1 Bug"

    August 27, 2010  |   By cybergaar

    Version: FBackup 4.4.213

    Pros

    Can backup files / directories to either compressed format or mirror (exact copy) on local or network locations. However...

    Cons

    Has problem during backup: "VscSrv2008.exe has stopped working" This message wil appear, however you can just hit OK and it will backup fine. Problem has to do with backup of open files.

    Summary

    For Free, it's great. If you need to recover your backup files and you don't have the program installed, you can do it. Backup can be opened (extracted with zip) or if you use 'mirror copy' just copy your files. Some backup utilities need to be installed to recover a backup, which can be a pain if you don't have the program. FBackup solves this -- except for the VscSrv2008.exe error.

    "Shocker: Does NOT backup to CD/DVD internal drive!!!"

    August 12, 2010  |   By calb1111

    Version: FBackup 4.4.213

    Pros

    nothing if it won't do a simple backup to a CD.

    Cons

    Will backup to C: drive (what good is that?)
    From the administrator of their forum:
    Please note FBackup does not allow you to back up to CD/DVD drives. If you want to use this feature, we recommend you to try our commercial product: Backup4all.

    Summary

    This is just a come-on to get you to buy their "real" product. Why doesn't CNET's review reveal that it won't backup to a CD/DVD drive??? Did they really try this software?

    "Fine Job for Regular Straightforward Backups"

    August 8, 2010  |   By CaoimhinD

    Version: FBackup 4.4.213

    Pros

    Now using FBackup for scheduled daily docs backup, and a weekly media (mp3, jpeg etc) backup. Works nicely, even with the dreaded Vista!

    Cons

    Doesn't do differential/incremental backup option - but this is being too picky for a free software.

    Summary

    Easy to set up & schedule backup jobs, works pretty fast and as expected. Obviously well designed with a pleasant user interface. The diff/incre is really a 'nice to have' and a not an issue at this price i.e, zero. Recommended for regular domestic backup functions in my experience.
