"Free product is good, paid version better still"

February 27, 2016  |  By thegardners-mn

2016-02-27 16:51:13  |  By thegardners-mn

 |  Version: Safe PST Backup Free Edition 2.52

Pros

We used the free version for a while and got a lot out of it. We chose to move to the "Enterprise" edition to have greater control over the configuration. The free version backs up Outlook even while it is open, which is very helpful. It even allows scheduling the backup to run up to three times per day.

Cons

The free version does not offer as much control as we wanted, but it was free. Really not a bad set of capabilities for the free version.

Summary

This is a very nice product for making sure you have a safe backup of your Outlook files. If you've ever tried to backup Outlook while it's open, you've encountered some challenges. We have tried custom batch files to force it closed, back it up, and re-launch it. This product is a much simpler way to get the job done. Leave it open. Back it up. Nuff said.

 |  Version: Safe PST Backup Free Edition 2.51

Pros

Allows the backup of the PST files automatically. Works well. Even the demo version does a great job. The full version allows better network control!

Cons

Really nothing negative. It does run at logon. Hoping the paid version will run as a service.

Summary

Great product. Does what it is supposed to!

"Ok its free, but it needs work."

 |  Version: Safe PST Backup Free Edition 2.40

Pros

backs up your PST while it's in use (No need to shut down Outlook to back up the PST/OST files)

Cons

Poor manual selection of files. (have fun setting it up to back up across your network using UNC path names)
The current version fails if you have more than one user profile on your machine (asking to update the registry and reboot). Due to be fixed in the "Next Version" but Christmas will get here sooner.

Summary

Until they make it more user configurable and fix issues like What is backed up and

"Saved all my Outlook data"

October 07, 2014  |  By Morsitens

2014-10-07 01:12:54  |  By Morsitens

 |  Version: Safe PST Backup Free Edition 2.40

Pros

Few weeks ago my OS crashed with all my data, there was a virus or something like this. I have a little family bussiness with all my contacts in Outlook. Thanks God and Safe PST Backup, I was backuping all data to external hdd. It is really important to have a copy of all your bussiness or important personal data.

Cons

Works without any problems, in the background. I have installed and forgot about it, until I needed it.

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

February 21, 2014  |  By netvicar2027

2014-02-21 17:22:29  |  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

2013-05-29 21:26:15  |  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!"

 |  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

2012-11-30 04:25:13  |  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.
