"One of the worst software programs I ever purchased"

August 22, 2009  |  By blantongodfrey

 |  Version: Memeo AutoBackup 3.50.3991

Pros

Almost nothing

Cons

Just doesn't work! After a month, I still have 18,000 files to back up. Keeps crashing and saying pending.

Summary

Instructions awful, interface not intuitive, can not get it to finish backing up my files. After playing with it for many, many hours, I am getting new backup software today and getting rid of Memeo.

"Only one problem so far"

July 29, 2009  |  By mrsdiehl42366

 |  Version: Memeo AutoBackup 3.50.3991

Pros

I have had this product for 7 months and I love the security it brings.

Cons

There are multiple copies of one document and only one of others. Then there are pictures that I can't identify from the name given. It would be nice if you could click on the file to see what it is before restoring it.

"Extremely Poor Product"

July 25, 2009  |  By kensinclair48

 |  Version: Memeo AutoBackup 3.50.3991

Pros

Simple (when it works)

Cons

Too many to list, but software keeps telling me that the objective drive is 'unavailable' when it is OK

Summary

It does not do what it says on the tin!! It does not back up all of the files. Software Support is non-existant, in that I have reported the above problem many times, but it has not been rectified!!
STAY CLEAR

"Awesome concept if it work for a while"

June 27, 2009  |  By vdotmatrix

 |  Version: Memeo AutoBackup 3.50.3991

Pros

Automatic. unobtrusive. GREAT IDEA

Cons

completely unreliable backup for your DATA. backup plans fail after a period of time and become pending. unexpected errors make the program stop. You spend more time on the support forum in this MEMEO backup laboratory.

Summary

Hasn't worked consistently in 9 months. I have xp-pro SP3 and VISTA. Backup plans first of all take 48 hours to initialize at least. This in itself is ridiculous. Plans have a pending status and stop altogether. then the errors and the MEMEO green screen. You are referred to the MEMEO SUPPORT FORUM and here you will spend most of your time. The support staff will ask you to send them log after log after log to solve the issue you are having. then they'll tell you to delete the instance folder, delete the plans and create new plans time after time after time... HOLY STUFFFFF!
I wish this thing would work because it is by far the coolest concept in backup but what do you do?

there is nothing good about this program. After months, there are no updates . the program remain quiet on my 2 computers. The backups work for a few times then they stop. i go back to the forum , customer service forum people want to see he log...it is the same old stuff. the program unless there is another update is just worthless. i cannot trust that the program will work as designed. it came free with my buffalo ext. hard rive. what a piece of junk...avoid.

"Memory Hogger!"

May 27, 2009  |  By jbosscher

 |  Version: Memeo AutoBackup 3.50.3991

Pros

The concept is great - if it worked

Cons

A few weeks after installation our PC was too slow. With no programs running the Task Manager CPU usage was 100% it was the MEMEO file that was doing this I uninstalled the software and my

Summary

"Utterly unreliable - avoid at all costs!!"

May 23, 2009  |  By timkeen

 |  Version: Memeo AutoBackup 3.50.3991

Pros

Easy to install

Cons

Too many glitches - this software is unreliable.

Summary

Memeo backup installed and worked perfectly for about a week and then my troubles started. It stopped backing up getting stuck in a "pending" mode. Then it starts backing up again but from scratch so now I have 4 copies of everything on my external drive. It has been driving me crazy. The Memeo help guy recommended that I de-install the version I have and purchase a later version. Why on earth would to pay for a later version of the same software?!! I am going to find some other sofware to do my backing up. Be warned !

"Worst backup software I have ever used."

May 13, 2009  |  By JRAdams01

 |  Version: Memeo AutoBackup 3.50.3991

Pros

Setup was easy. Selecting files/folders to backup was easy--very intuitive and comprehensive.

Cons

Slow. Backup of 140GB took over 18 hours, and it never finished. Makes the computer unusable, even after reboot.

Summary

This software came as a 30-day trial with my 1TB WD MyBook external HD. The first backup never seemed to finish, it just got slower and slower, using more and more CPU and memory, eventually bringing the system to its knees (2.4GHz AMD Dual-core, 4GB RAM.) On reboot, it immediately began using over 40% of the CPU, which continued for hours (I tried to let it finish, but it never did the second time or the third time either), making the computer totally unusable. I even had trouble bringing up the Task Manager to kill the process (which I had to do to uninstall the program). I won't take the chance of installing anything from Memeo ever again.

"Easy, Reliable Backup Software--it's been great!"

May 11, 2009  |  By mixmaster09

 |  Version: Memeo AutoBackup 3.50.3991

Pros

I found this product really easy to use and just love how low maintenence it is. I literally set up my backup plan and forgot about it. My files and photos continue to back up just fine.

Cons

I had problems finding my serial number to activate the software past trial and was slightly annoyed. Memeo Support was very responsive and helpful.
Also, very first backup of files took quite some time, Support also told me this is normal.

Summary

It's great to have backup software that actually works... Recently I noticed Memeo released an 4.0 upgrade so I updated It's twice as fast and I have not experienced any issues. Once again, it's been a great customer experience overall and I highly recommend Memeo Backup for those in need of a backup software.

"Overall a great product"

May 07, 2009  |  By Lyrictime

 |  Version: Memeo AutoBackup 3.50.3991

Pros

I had a good experience using it. Been trying to find a easy to use backup program. Most for my financial files and family pictures. It's simple to use, i haven't had any issues using it at all

Cons

some buttons are small

Summary

I just set up the program to backup the files i need. It's actually really simple. It's got a very low learning curve, it's all basically self-explanatory once you start it up.

"The worst backup software I have ever seen"

April 20, 2009  |  By iamcde

 |  Version: Memeo AutoBackup 3.50.3991

Pros

There is nothing to like about it

Cons

With out option or warning this software zips the file then conveniently gives it a "zipped file #" making it a huge pain to locate your files on the external hard drive.

Summary

Limited features and file zipping in a backup where the hard drive is accessed regularly, as if it were an internal drive, is a real pain. My advice, stick with Seagate drives (user friendly software included :))
