    "Lost backup data. Not a backup product."

    May 17, 2014  |   By bamangam

    Version: MyPCBackup

    Pros

    Easy to use

    Cons

    - Lost backup files. Imagine loosing your memories and important documents after paying money!!
    - Response to resolve the issue - no luck. They sent me their legal terms which says they are not responsible for backup. What business are they in?
    - If you want to loose your data after paying money please go ahead and use them. Otherwise, run away.

    "Unsolicited malware from CNET."

    May 17, 2014  |   By swanjame

    Version: MyPCBackup

    Pros

    None. None.

    Cons

    This installed automatically while I downloaded two updates through CNET. It produced persistent popups and was difficult to remove. After removing it, my computer crashed and had to do an automatic chkdsk to recover.

    (I had opted out of everything on the downloads.)

    Summary

    CNET is losing credibility.

    "Great Little Software Buy"

    May 7, 2014  |   By HamptonPR

    Version: MyPCBackup

    Pros

    Secure, bank-type encryption, access to your files through multiple devices, automatic back-up scheduled at your convenience, and much more.

    Cons

    Can be incompatible with certain virus programs. You have to add a filter, but then it works just fine.

    Summary

    We're thrilled with how this software has helped out our family. It has allowed us to access all file types throughout all of our devices. It's been a great help to know that #1. Our files are safe from being lost or destroyed and #2. They can be accessed on the go.

    "Software is Being Recommended to DJ's"

    April 30, 2014  |   By MHooper22

    Version: MyPCBackup

    Pros

    Back-up thousands of dollars worth of digital music files.

    Cons

    Haven't run into a problem with this software.

    Summary

    I don't know if the company did a campaign or what, but this software is being highly recommended in the DJ community. I didn't think much of it until several well known DJ's mentioned signing up. They were pretty excited about it, so I tried it out. I agree with them. $5 to be able to do all the features in a simple way, well that's nothing! I've priced some other cloud options and they're ridiculous, or they only store certain files. Amazon on Amazon's cloud, Apple on Apple's cloud. I have an Android tablet and an iPhone, so this was a necessity for me to sync everything. Now I can buy from whichever company has the best price, so it's really saved me money by not having to worry about compatibility. I love it!

    "Data Syncing Pulled Me In"

    March 27, 2014  |   By MiraDiva1

    Version: MyPCBackup

    Pros

    Automatic back-up solution.
    Data syncing.
    Next technology in back-up software.

    Cons

    Seems to be a compatibility issue with certain anti-virus that makes people nervous.

    Summary

    I did some research on the company before I installed the software. I found out that there motto is "provide easy-to-use solutions for online applications". Okay, great. They seem to have developed a ton of software, not just this one. They employ over 150 people. Okay, I'm sold that they aren't a scam.
    I signed up for the installation. I was given two weeks and I only had to provide my name, email address and a password. So far, so good.
    The download was really fast. Once I downloaded it, I noticed that it started automatically backing up files like Documents and Pictures. Some research told me that it was set to do this based on the most popular parameters for back-ups. Okay great.
    The back-up itself took a bit. I wouldn't say it was fast or slow. It was to be expected. Since I have it set-up to update when I am not using the devices, it's fine by me.
    Finally, the two features that made me upgrade for the $5, was the synching of files between devices & file and folder sharing through email invitation. I could let anyone look at my cloud data with an invitation. That was pretty cool.
    Another neat feature was that I could do a complete computer restore if I wished.
    Once I upgraded, I could back-up my data every hour if I wished. This was helpful when I was doing a lot of important work that I didn't want to lose. Finally, this software allowed me to access previous versions of the same file. I found this very very valuable after I ran across an occasion that I needed it.

    The choice is yours, but I found this software VERY helpful. I found features I didn't even know I needed. It's definitely worth the free 2-week trial.

    "Pure Trash - Total Ad-ware"

    March 16, 2014  |   By jyeary3

    Version: MyPCBackup

    Pros

    Never got to a pro anything. My security protocols shut it down as soon as I opened it.

    Cons

    On initial scan in what I thought would find junk and speed up my system; my security protocols went crazy identifying ad-ware and uninstalled it immediately. then I couldn't get my money back from Uniblue. Should have known better. Had issues with them 7 or 8 years back.

    Summary

    This software download is a total was of your money and your time and Uniblue is nothing more than an out right internet con artists.

    "Flim Flam Company"

    February 6, 2014  |   By jvbynon

    Version: MyPCBackup

    Pros

    They did back up my computer.

    Cons

    They charge & charge & charge again. Then they tell you your account is cancelled and they want more money. They have made several unauthorized charges to my credit card.

    Summary

    Steer clear of these scammers.

    "Easy to Use Back-Up Solution"

    February 6, 2014  |   By Sampson5115

    Version: MyPCBackup

    Pros

    It can be set up on a timer to automatically back up your system whenever you want.
    Affordable solution.
    Uncomplicated.
    Easy for multiple users to learn.

    Cons

    I haven' experienced any.

    Summary

    Love the product. I'm a pretty forgetful person, so being able to set this to back-up my stuff each night is great for me. I don't have to worry about remembering to do it and that's a major plus. The app is very transparent about what you get when you upgrade and I appreciate that. Try it out!
