"It backs up. It's free."
It does what it's supposed to do, it backs up the folders and files you ask it to.
Simple for noobs to use - with limitations, see Summary.
Slow. 4.28GB took 38 min, compared with 4.55GB in 12 min on the previous free backup I used. You have to make a password even if you're backing up to your own external hard drive.
When you create a new Backup Plan, the Browse window closes after you select an item, so you have to open it again, then open the desired folder again, find the next item you want, over and over for each and every item you want to backup, which is really annoying. After backup completed, I wanted to check random files on my external hard drive to see if they were ok, but I was unable to open any of them. This was not a problem with the files made by my previous backup tool, which was a bit bloated and complicated for my needs, but I have reinstalled it in favour of Ocster.
