GRBackPro Professional Backup

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Apr 27, 2009

Boring tabs and an altogether clutter interface are what you'll be greeted with when you use this backup tool. After we got our hands on it, we found it second best to other cheaper, and even a few free, backup programs.

GRBackPro uses tabs to organize its features. But within each tab, we found numerous buttons that lacked any flow. It was hard to know what to do first or where to go next. We tried to create a new job, which we were able to name, and select a destination folder. Once we clicked the Backup button, the program quickly and successfully backed up our files, but the effort to get to this point didn't seem worth it. A schedule feature is included, but we were unable to add or edit events because the buttons to do so were deactivated in the trial version. Advanced settings give you the option of skipping any empty files during the backup, including hidden files, and password-protecting ZIP files. ZIP file compression is included, but the ZIP file level and temp path settings were confusing.

The program includes a Help menu, but that doesn't address GRBackPro's design flaws. It would take a complete design overhaul to fix this program's problems, and it certainly isn't worth the cost in its current form. We recommend that you save yourself the trouble and money, and check out some of the other backup programs on the market.

Developer's Description

What if you can no longer access your valuable data because of a hard drive problem? GRBackPro is a Windows data backup program that helps protect you from such event. You can define multiple backup sessions: back up a whole disk, a single folder or just a few files. An integrated scheduler will let you start your backup automatically without any intervention, even if your PC is in stand-by, and you can set conditions such as paths available, no user input and CPU loading to fine tune your backup process. GRBackPro supports networks, USB drives, hard drives and all removable hard drives. Tapes are not supported unless seen as a drive letter. You can install it as a Windows Service to have your backups start even if no users are logged in. It supports Windows Volume Shadow Copy on both 64 and 32 bit Systems in order to backup open and locked files. GRBackPro let you handle long path names up to 1024 characters. Unicode file names are supported even inside the zip archives. You can span multiple destination disks so that you can easily build a multi disk backup set. Split mode to easily burn DVDs after the backup has been completed. An History mode let you keep multiple backup sets. Integrated restore facility to easily restore your files or whole backups and also keep two or more PCs synchronized. You can execute one or more tasks before and/or after the backup, such as start/stop/restart services close an application, start a program, pause the backup, open a message box, end a process or send an email (which lets you send the backup log report if any error has been found in the backup. Registry backup both locally (for an easy manual restore) or on the destination disk. Automatic software update facility allows you to easily update. Fully featured backup software with many professional options built to solve any data backup problem.
