FileBack PC 4.1.090120

FileBack PC Editor's Review

'FileBack PC' is a great tool for backing up data to and from your computer, network drives, removable drives, and so on. If you can access a folder in "My Computer", then you should be able to back it up with this software. The program can be used by a novice, but it also has several advanced features that make it a powerful backup utility.

Using this software is easy. You can define multiple backup tasks, depending on what data you want to protect. You have three ways of defining a new task. I personally like the wizard mode the best, because it guides you each step of the way. However, you can also use an "advanced editor" to configure the new backup jobs. Each set of backup jobs, along with the backup schedules and logs, can be saved into a configuration file. You can load one of these configurations through the program's user interface. The backup jobs can also be exported or imported separately.

This software can synchronize the folders or devices that you choose to back up. It creates a version number for each backup, allowing you to track each automatic task. You can set the program to create a copy of your data, based on a schedule. For example, I was able to configure it to create a backup each Sunday at 12 AM, automatically. The schedules are divided into several categories (weekly, monthly, specific dates, daily, or "by rule"). In fact, all the program's features are very well organized. FileBack PC's user interface is very intuitive. It's designed to give you easy access to all the features.

Pluses: FileBack PC is one of the best backup tools I know. It has an extra feature called "Destination Folder Cleanup Wizard". This feature defines several parameters for cleaning up the backup destination folders. You can configure it to delete old backups, temporary files, files not found in the source folder, and so on.

Drawbacks / flaws:

In conclusion: FileBack PC is definitely a tool that is worth trying. If you need to backup any type of data, this software comes in handy.
