    "Never found any better backup program - perfection"

    May 11, 2013   |   By LewLorton

    Version: SyncBackSE 6.3.13.0

    Pros

    My system is fairly complex for a home user. I am a photographer and I do multiple backups across three computers on a network.
    I use about 15 profiles for different tasks and, once set up, they run perfectly and dependably.

    Cons

    For me, none.

    Summary

    If Syncback can't do your backup, it can't be done.

    "Works as advertised"

    August 27, 2012   |   By 2N3O

    Version: SyncBackSE 6.2.0.15

    Pros

    Free; is not resource hog (in normal conditions); I have to back up almost 2TB of data and this did the job beautifully; and even after there was an accidental shutdown during the backup process, once I restarted the process, it just continued where it was accidentally stopped;

    Cons

    None so far, for the moment; and I hope it stays that way

    Summary

    For something that is free, this one is loaded; I don't know about other applications with the same functionality, but I'm already satisfied with this one, it just makes my job much easier.

    "Excellent backup and folder synchronisation software"

    March 29, 2010   |   By pcarling

    Version: SyncBackSE 5.9.0.13

    Pros

    Very easy to set up and use, and very quick to execute.

    Cons

    None that I have discovered

    Summary

    This software is easy to install, configure and use, with totally intuitive screens. It runs very quickly and without hammering my PC. It was also very reasonably priced.

    "OK for backups, forget versioning"

    February 21, 2010   |   By marcvg

    Version: SyncBackSE 5.8.7.23

    Pros

    OK for backups, but ...

    Cons

    I wanted to use it for versioning, i.e. being able to go back to older versions of documents in case a mistake is made, or you need an older version of your document. but that function is hidden far away, for good reason.

    Summary

    You must look really hard for the versioning function, and then it gets incredibly complicated to figure out the right settings to actually do it. Save your time and don't use it for versioning, it's OK for backups, synchronizing etc. It has so many options that it's easy to get lost, or make a little options error with very serious consequences. Tha fastest automated backup option is once a day, why could it not be every hour if you're boasting that you're really saving old versions of files??

    "I've been using it for years & it gets better with age!"

    January 16, 2010   |   By mastrulo

    Version: SyncBackSE 5.8.7.23

    Pros

    Incredibly easy it even has an easy mode. Or use expert mode, it has good quality speech like Start This. Back up X completed etc. I also love the of columns to display, and its miriad auto functions, By name, serial # of a USB Flash or Hard Disk!

    Cons

    a couple of times it forgets its selected columns and displays all. Nothing much else really.

    "Flexible enough to do all that I want."

    January 11, 2010   |   By DaveMSen

    Version: SyncBackSE 5.8.7.23

    Pros

    Very flexible with lots of options.

    Cons

    Using some of the advanced features, filters in particular, I find a bit convoluted. Also you have to check deletions as it sometimes wants to delete a new file rather than copy it. Also files with a .dat extension are always considered to clash

    Summary

    I agree with another reviewer that the ability to hide and unhide group members would be useful.

    "Does almost all it promises"

    January 05, 2010   |   By rmassie

    Version: SyncBackSE 5.8.7.23

    Pros

    Great for general backing up and synchronising directories between laptop and PC

    Cons

    Does not synchronise to our archive which is one of those storage devices which are Linux based internally. When trying to synchronise we get a 'file not found' error.
