    "it takes too much space to back up my files that my computer simply does not have"

    May 19, 2008  |   By lausu435

    Version: Simply Safe Backup 2005.0.1.706

    Cons

    back up is a very good idea, however, back up perhaps means double up that my computer simply cannot do it, in term of the space of my computer.

    "Allowed me to compress1366 tracks on one DVD"

    January 21, 2008  |   By dstrykr

    Version: Simply Safe Backup 2005.0.1.706

    Pros

    This little jewel is sooo sweet! It allowed me to store 1366 tracks I ripped from my cd collection onto ONE DVD+R with 80mb to spare! It tells you how many CD's or DVDs it will take to store what you want backed up!

    Use this program with Duplicate Cleaner and Media Monkey and you have the best music (or photos and file) manager there is. All for free.

    Thanks so much for taking the time to create this wonderful tool.

    Cons

    I only used this software to back up my ripping directory. It offers the exact, simple features I wanted for compressing and backing up my music collection.

    "kind of annoying. Zips while backing up/"

    December 24, 2007  |   By vcuoco

    Version: Simply Safe Backup 2005.0.1.706

    Cons

    has some cool functionality but its missing alot. Ultimately, the reason i scrapped it was because it doesnt give the option to back up without compression. its one more way my files can become corrupt. Unfortunately, i think you have to buy something. i did. also it leave annoying dir's on the root of both folders.

    "Some things are working, some won't..."

    July 31, 2007  |   By GezaGabriel

    Version: Simply Safe Backup 2005.0.1.706

    Pros

    Actually, this software is fast and if working, it's quite good. You can read some messages which will alert you that the software may not be perfect. After i used the software i think it was a good idea (but maybe a checkbox would be nice). It's the free version and it should work with mysql databases (which i couldn't test cause of connection errors, but this can be personal problem). The uninstaller is fast.

    Cons

    update.exe xxx data/0 bytes. I guess it should show some numbers instead of the zero. Also, important informations installer window is empty.

    It shouldn't go to check updates right at start, unless i decided to do so.

    The "thanks for using" window's text have missing words (after first update).

    The update is not efficent: too big downloads!

    2005.0.1.730 told me there's a new version, however, this version remains the same. 06-13-2005 update is the only message, quite annoying, it can be an updater bug.

    License Agreement is about 2004, even if installer got 2005.0.

    I couldn't stop duplicate file finder after i've clicked the Run now... button. It's also a bugy thing, cause building file list for c:\directory\.\.\... and so on ..\. isn't a wise choice (and it will eat up your memory).

    The software itself can't see directories, which are hidden (by the operating system). To backup the outlook .dbx mailboxes, i must first create an access to directory as i can't type in the full path, which would make my work easier.

    I'm not quite sure that the ftp authorize process works well, i would need someone else opinion on this (this can be a personal experience).

    The start menu hasn't got uninstaller link, too bad.

    "Non-delivery of product, non existant customer support"

    June 25, 2007  |   By kennfd

    Version: Simply Safe Backup 2005.0.1.706

    Pros

    The demo looked OK

    Cons

    Website says the company will deliver the code to unlock the program in 48 hours. Nothing received after 4 days, e-mails not answered. Fortunately PayPal refunded the $39 I spent on this. There are better programs out there for back up, such as Acronis for Drive Image XML.
