Editors' review

Data loss is never a matter of if, only when. Fortunately, options for backing up data abound, and they no longer involve remembering to sit down and hook up an external hard drive. Nomadesk is an easy-to-use program that lets users not only back up their data to a secure server, but share data with other users as well. Now you can collaborate and protect your files with one simple utility.

Nomadesk has an intuitive interface that makes it easy to get started. Users can create accounts--safe spaces to store data in the cloud--and file servers, which can be shared with other users. Accounts and file servers show up in Windows Explorer as virtual drives, so adding files is as simple as saving to the desired location or dragging and dropping. We set up a file server and had no trouble at all inviting a friend to use Nomadesk and then share files with him once he'd installed it. The program even includes a clever Theftguard feature, which lets users report stolen computers and remove access to Nomadesk files from that computer. Although most of Nomadesk's features are pretty easy to figure out, the program comes with a well-written Help file that contains plenty of screenshots. Overall, we think this is a great choice for users who work collaboratively and frequently need to share files, but it's also a simple solution to backing up data for just about everyone.

Nomadesk installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of Nomadesk 4.0. The trial version is limited to 30 days.

    "Will not work on Windows 8!"

    November 26, 2012   |   By kirochick

    Version: Nomadesk 4.6

    Pros

    Worked great on Windows 7

    Cons

    Stopped working with Windows 8. Customer support poor.

    Summary

    The company had months to get Nomadesk ready for Windows 8. I let them know 6 weeks before Windows 8 came out that it was not working. They did not warn users not to upgrade. As of this date, it still does not work. When asked to refund what I had paid, they said no. Think twice about using this product.
