"Does not work as advertised"

May 30, 2013  |  By tech_guy_13

 |  Version: Synchronize Pro 4.3.1

Pros

The best thing about Qdea is Hugh Songtag the owner of Qdea will insult you if you call him on the tech support line. It is quite funny to hear such an angry man insult you unprovoked. This is good fun for a laugh if you are really bored. Think of the adventures of Peter and Raymond "Shut up Little Man!"

Cons

The software does not make a bootable image as advertised. The owner and sole tech support person Hugh will tell you that it is your own back luck that the software will not work. Hugh is not interested in helping customers in anyway. I explained that we were using a USB drive as a back up target. Hugh explained that the only reason it did not work was that the software required a Firewire drive. Sorry to say the Firewire made no difference. I work for a school system and Hugh is more than happy to rip off kids. It almost seems like Hugh never tested his software on an Xserve Thanks Hugh!

Summary

If you purchase this software be prepared to get no tech support. This software will not make a bootable copy of your server. Please do yourself a favor and do not purchase this software.

"Works smoothly to backup an Airport disk"

October 03, 2010  |  By foorfo

 |  Version: Synchronize Pro 4.3.1

Pros

Mounts and backs up an Airport disk flawlessly. I did not find another program capable of doing this.

Cons

Can't wake up the computer to run scheduled backups. Only runs when you are logged in and the computer is awake.

Summary

I wanted to automatically backup an Airport disk to a drive in my Mac Pro. Carbon Copy Cloner cannot do it, so I tried You Synchronize, LaCie's SilverKeeper, Apple's MobileMe Backup, and Get Backup. All of these programs suffered fatal errors and caused my Airport to become so inaccessible, that I had to pull the power plug to restart it. Qdea.com's Synchronize! Pro 4.3.1 did the backup smoothly and relatively quickly. The scheduling function is also the most flexible and worked flawlessly. You can also save a log file with the names of all copied files (This is particularly useful after the first backup of all files, in order to verify that new files have been copied and to check for any errors.) The program can also save the Airport disk password and automatically mount it in case it is not mounted. This is truly a Pro level program with lots of customization options. It costs some money, but there is a less expensive version, "Synchronize! X Plus", which has fewer features, but probably works just as well. (I have not tested it.)

A full featured demo version can be downloaded and used for 7 days in order to test your particular setup.

BTW, the demo version says it is version 6.1.3. The only restriction seems to be the time limit on the serial number which is e-mailed to you. I used the program to sync two folders with more than 50 GB of data.
