Editors' Review


JaBack is one of many backup programs on the market. It includes most of the standard backup features; however, we found its file backup configurations vague.

The main user interface was plain, with large command buttons at the top of the window, a tree-menu on the left that displays all created backup tasks, and a large panel that displays the specifics of each task. The program includes a set of tips at the bottom of the window, but it's never a good sign when you have to depend on tips to find your way around the interface. But once we got to the file monitor configuration window, we found its configuration options vague. For example, we weren't sure what to enter for the Directory field. It was only after we paid a visit to the Help menu that we figured out that is was for the source files. Then we had to enter a file name, which again required a visit to the Help menu. As it turns out, we had to enter either System 1 or System 2 in field. Eventually, we were able to create a backup task, but creating an ongoing backup schedule required just as many visits to the Help menu.

JaBack is a free program, but it doesn't hold a candle to some of the other free backup programs we've come across. We recommend that you skip this one and look for a backup program with easier navigation.

"Just what I need for my backups"

It allows 'copy' as opposed to a proprietary backup; you can select folders (with subfolders); you can create multiple 'tasks' - each task is one backup job, which is always a folder at the highest level; you can then chain these tasks

Much more flexible than Windows backup; and this works for me because I backup to another drive - can't do that with my Nero, which wants to write to a disk


Cannot select multiple folders; need to select the higher level folder; it does not see all folders, for example the default Outlook home for .pst files - I now need to move my pst files to a folder under My Docs to back them up.
