Editors' Review

+

SyncBackFree allows you to create backups of your computer quickly and efficiently, with clear directions to help even inexperienced users make the right decisions. In addition to creating backups, this program also can synchronize files and create mirror profiles, and you can choose to compress your files or not each time you run a backup.

Pros

Thorough instructions: Instructions for this program are available in multiple formats including online, a PDF, and an HTML Help File. No matter what form you choose, you'll find thorough and clear explanations for how to complete each step of the backup process and why it's important.

Simulated report: After you set up your backup, but before you actually run it, you can have the program generate a simulated report to show what will happen when you do actually put the process in motion. If you're satisfied with the results the report provides, you can quickly run the backup as well.

Automatic backup schedule: In addition to running manual backups through this program, you can also set it up to run them automatically, at whatever intervals you choose. In fact, you can create multiple backup profiles for different sets of files and folders, and then run backups for each of those on different schedules and at different intervals.

Cons

Difficult interface: The interface is not intuitive at all, and it is hard to figure out without consulting the Help file. This is a fine option for inexperienced users, as long as you don't mind spending some time reading through the detailed instructions provided. But experienced users probably don't want to go over a bunch of information they already know just to find out where certain features are, and that means a lot of poking around before you can actually get the program to do what you want.

Bottom Line

SyncBackFree offers a good number of useful features and valuable functionality, although the interface is a bit lacking.

"SyncBackFree is a KEEPER!"

March 25, 2015  |  By Dr. Berts

 |  Version: SyncBackFree 7.0.14

Pros

SyncBackFree is incredibly powerful, flexible, reliable, and easy to use. I've used it for years without a single problem. An early version had problems with daylight savings time but that was fixed many years ago, and even then the program had the flexibility to work around the problem. There are so many bad programs (especially the free ones) that one can easily get 'search weary'. End your search now. Use SyncBackFree!

Cons

None than I have experienced.

Summary

A Great Program at a Great Price that has withstood the test of time.
