      "Not very good."

      June 26, 2011   |   By gkvogel

      Version: Iomega Automatic Backup 1.0.2

      Pros

      Easy to use & set up.

      Cons

      Had all my backup stored, had to completely restore computer. Installed Iomega software, pluged in device and immediately it deleted my backed up files and started reloading new files which I had none as they WERE on the Iomega device.

      Summary

      Will not recommend this to anyone soon.

      "Worthless Back-up Program"

      November 16, 2010   |   By chris2fer

      Version: Iomega Automatic Backup 1.0.2

      Pros

      Seems easy to use

      Cons

      Index file for the back-up files is stored on the drive that is being backed!?! When the drive fails you lose the Index file, rendering your Back-up extremely difficult to get at. Who thought of that design!
      Iomega can't help

      Summary

      Do not rely on this Back-up. Find and use a different program, rated highly by others.

      I lost, not one, but two of my extrenal harddrives that were backed-up onto another Harddrive using this program. When I lost the drives I lost the Index files for the Back-ups.

      I am now spending a great deal of time trying to locate a tool or program that lets me get into and extract my files. I am told that after I locate this program, it will extract my files from these Iomega files. Once they are extracted I have to take an extra file extension off each file name. Essentially you have to re-name each file! I have Thousands of pictures in these back-ups! ugh!

      Lesson Learned, get a RAID controller and set up a pair of drives for RAID and back that up as well with a better program.
