"Buggy software; can't restore files; bait and switch?"

September 09, 2013  |  By incpen

 |  Version: MyPC Backup 1.1.0.03

Pros

None. I cannot recommend JustCloud or MyPCBackup. Period.

Cons

I installed this software; it never worked properly. I had more than 50 emails back and forth with them, always a different 'person' responding, never solved the problems.

They completely screwed up my billing ("by mistake"); it's impossible to tell what I even paid them.

Backups never got completed, interface was buggy, stopped without completing backup. They tried to sell me an upgrade to 'speed it up', but I refused.

Then they changed their terms of service, and suddenly stopped automatically uploading video files. Why would you go with a service that doesn't backup your home videos? It's absurd.

Their latest ploy is to say that they suspect I'm using it 'for business purposes' and that I need to pay for an upgrade. This is ridiculous; I have supposedly have their 'unlimited plan'.

The software has never worked properly. Customer service is non-existent-to-hostile and they constantly change their terms of service to their advantage.

My opinion: Avoid this like the plague!

Summary

If you look at most of the (positive) product reviews for this company, you'll see that every one of the reviewers signed up and posted a single review for MPCB, (and one or two about some other product) and then never returned to CNET.

Red flags all over this product.

Other people might call them crooks. I'd of course never say that.

"I Got this from CNET downloading a metric calculator."

June 11, 2013  |  By peetrerb

 |  Version: MyPC Backup 1.1.0.03

Pros

NO PRO to having this virus. Pops up all the time reminding me to backup my files

Cons

This is AWFUL

Summary

I Agree with the above comment. Why is CNET promoting this?

"Changed pricing and plans when half way through"

February 04, 2013  |  By andrewnd

 |  Version: MyPC Backup 1.1.0.03

Pros

- Simple interface
- Emails were responded to reasonable quickly

Cons

- Changed pricing and policy part way through contract
- Expensive if you want 'features' that others don't charge for
- Seemed slow, but haven't used any others

Summary

The worst thing about this service was that they changed the conditions of my subscription 8 months into a 2 year contract. Essentially all my data is on an external drive and after being able to back this up for 8 months (although still uploading original files) I could no longer automatically back up external drives without paying them an addition $5 or $10 per month (I forget which).

Similarly for larger files, and videos I think... didn't impact me.

Not good enough. You need a backup system and provider you can rely on. My monthly fee was going to triple to do the same thing I signed up for originally.

"No stars. Can't get rid of their popups!"

September 29, 2012  |  By happyman70Biloxi

 |  Version: MyPC Backup 1.1.0.03

Pros

It would be a pro if they'd remove their popups!

Cons

Looked at their service a month ago, did not subscribe, but get their rotten popups constantly, though my popup blocker is set to high. I e-mailed them and asked them to tke their popups off, but the popups continue. Don't click on their website or you will be stuck as I am.

Summary

Stay away!

"Awesome Backup Program"

September 24, 2012  |  By LewisKuzam

 |  Version: MyPC Backup 1.1.0.03

Pros

Speed and price are probably the best 2 things about the system - my uploads are done in no time and I only pay $5 a month

Cons

Needed more space for the trial version, I couldn't really get a good feel for the program but I took the gamble and signed up anyway

Summary

Definitely worth buying, it probably wont suit some very advanced backup-ers but its only $5

"Disappointing"

September 22, 2012  |  By luvcubs2

 |  Version: MyPC Backup 1.1.0.03

Pros

OK.. IF and when it works.

Cons

Skips files, will not complete backup, continually stalls at 96%. Can't seem to get any answer from support dept.

Summary

Use another backup program.

"Horrible, do not use"

September 20, 2012  |  By proserpinum

 |  Version: MyPC Backup 1.1.0.03

Pros

cheap, easy to register

Cons

- Backups slow/restore impossibly slow
- Backups not complete; restore process would return "successfully completed" message yet was not 100% done (missed files)
- Tickets - only via the web/email - took 3 days during an URGENT system down situation to get the problem resolved

Summary

Mypcbackup - horrible solution. Glad to tell you my experience, the 3 days of inadequate support and the failures on their part of the backup, and rationale for my decision to disconnect service.

I would not recommend anyone to use them if you want to rely on them in a recovery situation where you are reliant on their service or quality of the backup.

"Just quality cloud storage"

September 14, 2012  |  By JRoberts345

 |  Version: MyPC Backup 1.1.0.03

Pros

the whole program is up and running quickly and from there is simple to use. i've backed up my whole film and music collection.

Cons

The trial version wouldn't let me back up all my stuff, i thought it would be like a week trial or something.

Summary

great way to back your stuff up on the cloud, especially if youre on a budget

"The Easiest Backup System I've Used"

September 14, 2012  |  By DCorino

 |  Version: MyPC Backup 1.1.0.03

Pros

Ease of use is a massive plus point - the sync folder and drag and drop features make it so easy to use that my 12 year old son can do it no problem.

Cons

My first response from the support team took a while

Summary

Very easy to use and very cheap whilst still incorporating some impressive apps.
