    ""Spyware?" No. Beach of email privacy? Yes!"

    February 21, 2014   |   By netvicar2027

    Version: Safe PST Backup Free Edition 2.20

    Pros

    This saved my PST file and a couple other items w/o much hassles. I was expecting more features than that though, like perhaps also backup all outlook rules. But no go. A simple start up batch file is just as handy as this software -- without privacy issues mentioned below!

    Cons

    For grabbing my private email address out of outlook and emailing it without my permission I'd give this a zero if cnet allowed a zero. Or even better, a negative 1000! I read the user agreement before installing this and nowhere did it overtly say it would cull installed outlook and send emails to addresses other than the address registered when installing this product. "Spyware" no. Potential security and privacy breach, yes!

    Summary

    Tons of industry certificates on their site makes the company seem legit. But hiding in obtuse language that this grabs one or more email addresses out of outlook without permission is an example of a bad corporate agent no matter how many awards or certificates they have. DO NOT USE IF PRIVACY IS A CONCERN -- especially in a business or government environment where an email address must be kept private. Your 'real' email address(es) will be exposed regardless of the email address you register this free version with. had I known that I'd never installed this software. Major privacy breach. You've been warned :/

    "Spyware?" No. *Beach* of email privacy? Yes!"
    Dang typo under emotional distress. There clearly is a difference between 'beach' and 'breach.' Hopefully someone at cnet can edit that. And delete this comment. Thanks and sorry about typing while under the influence of frustration :)

    "It just 'doesn't' work"

    May 29, 2013   |   By Joshua654321

    Version: Safe PST Backup Free Edition 2.10

    Pros

    Doesn't contain spyware.

    Cons

    I get an hourglass freeze every-time I right mouse click on the tray icon. Tried re-installing several times. Tried all the different capability settings...no dice. Using windows 7.

    Summary

    Will be happy to change my rating if anyone helps me fix it.

    "It just works!"

    March 30, 2013   |   By civwar54

    Version: Safe PST Backup for Microsoft Outlook Free Edition 1.10.0093

    Pros

    I've been looking for a clean easy way to backup my pst files for years. Just found this, so I installed it, and within a couple of minutes I was performing my first backup. It took a long time, so I was worried it would be running backups all day. But then the incremental took over, and wow, all I can say, it is terrific!

    I have it set to backup every 3 hours. I never notice it! But every time I check, all my files are right there, in pst format, ready to go if my main system crashes.

    Cons

    What more could you want?

    "works fine"

    November 30, 2012   |   By zombiecrisp

    Version: Safe PST Backup Free Edition 2.01

    Pros

    Using the free version, all good & well. pity you can't backup .ost files with the free version... but .pst files are backed up well and when importing them everything seems to be fine, no errors. so very good for a free tool.

    Cons

    You can't backup .ost files with the free version, you need to buy the Enterprise version for that. But for any non-exchange outlook accounts it works great.

    "great tool"

    November 30, 2012   |   By richardkvx

    Version: Safe PST Backup Free Edition 2.01

    Pros

    I'm using the free version and it's working great. Love it: it's simple and clear how to use it, and it runs great. I'm thinking to get the enterprise edition because of the additional features. In any case, this is some great software.

    Cons

    Since i didn't pay anything for it and it's working well, i haven't got any complaints about it :)

    Summary

    It's worth getting it.

    "It's good!"

    November 29, 2012   |   By johansmidt80

    Version: Safe PST Backup Free Edition 2.01

    Pros

    I tried the free version - worked good, bought the enterprise edition - works perfect.
    If you only need something simple, get the free version, otherwise i recommend you buy the enterprise because it has some nice features to it.

    Cons

    works just like a swiss watch. (that means very good)

    "free+good = great!"

    November 28, 2012   |   By simonstreller

    Version: Safe PST Backup Free Edition 2.01

    Pros

    i got the free edition to make backups of my outlook account and i've been doing this for some time now, but never really needed them until a couple of days ago. I had to use the backup made to get back all my outlook data after a bad crash, and i'm no computer geek of any sorts so i asked for help from their tech support. they helped me out and helped me get my outlook up and running with all my data saved in just a few minutes! i was really relieved, and i'm glad i used this program!!

    Cons

    it's free and works great, so there's nothing more to add here!

    Summary

    free version works great, plus the tech support really helped me out when i needed!!

    "Works perfect, wonderful tool!"

    November 28, 2012   |   By DanielKr9

    Version: Safe PST Backup Free Edition 2.01

    Pros

    I downloaded the free version to check it out first before making any decisions if i will buy this product or not. Installed it and tested it for a few days, and since I used to work as a tested i tried all sorts of little tricks to see if it's really good. Eventually I ended up buying it because I couldn't find anything wrong with it, and works perfectly!honestly this is one great tool to have for any Outlook-dependent user!

    Cons

    tried out various ways to crash it, to see if it's really good, and I eventually bought it. works great!

    Summary

    definite recommendation. i'm sure you'll agree with me once you start using it.
