Another good program, use the free edition to back up photos, etc. but the full version has been a little to expensive for my tight wallet. Haven't used the restore yet and hope I don't have to.

I tried several different "Free" backup programs. Each seem to have its problem areas. After a few different "Trial" software experiments I downloaded Backup4All and have found it to be easy to setup, excellent variety of plugins and solid performance. I have since purchased 2 Pro licenses and a Portable license. Highly recommended for anyone serious about backing up there data.

I have tested and used many back-up and sync applications but I have never been entirely pleased with any of them (all the apps I have tried lack features I need) so I have been forced to use 3 or 4 programs for different tasks. I am still searching for a back-up solution that will be exactly to my liking and meeting all my needs. Perhaps it will be Backup4All Professional?

Bonjour à toute l'équipe de softpedia.
Pour être honnête, je ne connais pas encore ce logiciel et je ne l'ai pas encore essayé.
Mais en toute sincérité, j'aimerai bien avoir une licence afin de l'utiliser dans un cadre légal.
Je vous remercie vivement.
Le vôtre, Hacene.

One of the best, if THE best back up software on the market today! I've been looking for a good if not GREAT back-up software. Thanks BackUp4All & Softpedia.... Your AWESOME!!!!
|Comment #20 by: supercracker on 25 Sep 2011, 16:09 UTC|| reply to this comment|
A backup solution is very necessary these days.A Mal-ware attack or an unpredicted accident may destroy our valuable data.......At these situations a backup solution may save us.If we talk about $49.95 priced Backup4All all I can say is that "It saves our time and money".It's price is nothing when compared to the price we have to pay if we loss all our data..But if we think deeper it's a little high.
It's a strong software good for Office as well as for Home usage.The main thing users would love is that we can secure our backups using passwords...It's plain and simple interface makes average users to operate it with ease.We can make as many as backups we want and organize them in to groups for further easy usage.
I'm familiar with many other backup solutions.And when I compare this stuff with them what I find bad was this has no option for Drive Backup....But the other utilities are good and satisfying....I must say """This is a very useful Giveaway""

I installed a free trial version and tested it to backup my windows VPS. Backup4All has thoroughly implemented all nuances of backing up files. Anything you can think of they have covered it.
Ability to save backup space area by limiting backups to X amount
Compressing and encrypting to zip files
Multiple types of destination for backups: ie FTP to remote locations, another Hard Drive
Multiple attributes can be tested to see if a file has changed
Runs as a windows scheduler task
Does not have a built in SQL Express backup capability

We all know we should backup, don't we?, and there are various methods available that many people use, well Backup4all is certainly a very well known and established program to backup your all important files with options to schedule automatic backups (relieves the drain on the brain having to remember to backup) and to run incremental,differential,mirror or full methods and then compressing the results (Zip64 to enable large file support as well as a standard format that can be opened in other programs)to save on disk space (who ever has enough disk space?).It can also encrypt your sensitive data using AES 128,192,256 encryption and runs a crc to make sure that the data was saved correctly (nothing worse than restoring a backup only to find that it is corrupted).Being able to backup open or locked files is a plus as having a backup fail due to a file being open or locked is a total pain (especially explaining to the Boss, why the backup for last night did not run, which usually takes 6 hours and the servers have crashed and the recent data has been corrupted, yup the ol dole queue looks pretty good just about now!).There are also built in mechanisms to upload the backups to offsite ftp and sftp servers.Nice options are available in the line of filters to differentiate the types and locations of files for backup as well as predefined backups for My Documents, email etc. making this software very simple to set up in the first instance for novices, but it has more than enough options and tools for the power user/professional (as the name suggests).Another nice feature is file version restore, very handy for programmers backing up multiple versions of their work. Finally a built in cd/dvd burner makes it a simple process to burn your backups to optical media without having to use external programs/resources.
Upon opening the program a "Getting Started" dialog appears (can be disabled if not needed) with helpful suggestions as to what you would like to do with the program, such as how to's, shortcuts and tutorials as well as 2 big buttons namely "Backup" and "Restore".
To restore a backup you need to first have at least created a new backup (duh) give it a name and location to save to (local,network,ftp,sftp) then select the files or folders to backup (use filters here or preconfigured options from dropdown list) then select backup mode and encryption, if needed,then set schedule options and then save or save and run, simple really. (note that this was done in the standard view, not the advanced view, which is esentially all the same options, but all from the same menu, rather than from window by window view).
I found that the backup was resonably quick, but obviously this will vary from machine to machine and the size and quantity of files being backed up as well as whether compression and encryption are used.
Pros; Simple and advanced views.
Locked open file backups.
Option to test backups.
File version restore option.
Comprehensive help files.
Does a fairly quick job backing up.
Company offers several versions at different prices for different needs.
Cons; None at the moment.
Conclusion; A very well thought out piece of software that should enable easy backups for users of all levels of experience.
Note: All comments and observations are purely subjective and my differ to others' experiences.
Please count me in Thanks.

A Backup4all Professional változatával a biztonsági mentési feladatok automatizálásával védekezhetünk adataink teljes vagy részben történő elvesztése ellen. Bármilyen helyi vagy hálózati meghajtóra, FTP-kiszolgálóra (SSL-titkosítás, proxy kiszolgáló, passzív módtámogatásával), CD/DVD/Blu-ray lemezre vagy más cserélhető adathordozóra (például USB-meghajtóra) készíthetünk vele biztonsági mentést. Szerintem egy nagyon hasznos alkalmazás, ajánlom mindenkinek aki biztonságba akarja tudni adatait! Köszönöm Softpedia a bemutatót!

In a home network topology, a backup solution like this is very important. Currently, I am running a series of scripts to accomplish my backup needs but the requirements set forth are tedious. Having an awesome utility like Backup4All Pro would greatly reduce my stress levels and thus contribute to my well being so that I will not die young by banging my head against a wall or by a massive heart attack! :) Thank you for an opportunity to win a free Backup4All Pro license!

Hello. In this post, first I will share my experience with Softland software & then why I would love to get a Backup4all Pro license!
I have been using Softland's freeware FBackup for last 1.5 years.
Originally, I had used GFI Backup Home Edition for my file backups. It had so many errors that I was forced to look for an alternative.
I settled on FBackup after testing a record 14 programs.
Recently, I came across a Backup4all Lite 4.x giveaway on 'The Windows Club', a popular website run by a Microsoft MVP. Since last 1 month, I have switched to Backup4all Lite.
There is not much of a difference between FBackup or Backup4all Lite. But, both work FLAWLESSLY, unlike others. There is no pesky advertising or background services [GFI Home had one] to deal with. As an ordinary user, that is precisely what we expect.
As such, Softland is now one company I can trust. Also, I have participated in selected Softpedia giveaways - i.e., only for those software which I can really trust & consider 100% worthwhile. This is one such vendor & software.
The features which I like most in Backup4all Professional, are the incremental & differential backup - if given a license, I simply will run it on my new Windows 7 PC. The mirror backup offered by Fbackup & Backup4all Lite is little more than folder syncing.
Its no secret that incremental & differential give you tremendous power & flexibility along with all the other options offered by Pro edition.
Backup4all Professional is quite expensive [also pointed in the review by Ionut Illascu] but program quality is of highest order - frankly, Softpedia's giveaway is that wonderful opportunity to get such precious software for free.
Thank you for everything,

once i tried to install easus todo backup workstation and it was well after installtion just after that i took back up for my system image with it.when a day after that my system fails to start i tried to recover my system with easeus todo backup workstation for data that was backed up earlier and situation goes more worse even than before. Then i installed fresh copy of os on my system after that i dicided to not to try again that stupid product.and just after it I tried for trial version of backup4all and took backup of my whole system with help of it. it was working awesome when i tried to restore my system with help of it.Then i found my self fall in love with backup4all. but as i am a student there was always some financial problem with me thats why i cant afford it by way of purchasing.but when i found this giveaway a hope inside me arose that it is a chance to have backup4all. its really a nice giveaway many many thanks for organising this giveaway.i pray to god to give me a chance to have this great product so called backup4all through this giveaway.

The first backup program in softpedia giveaway. Backup4all Professional offers all the features required for a good backup program. It has an intuitive interface, and allows easy access to pending and current jobs using its explore view.
Its backup wizard does its job by just asking where, what, how and when. Restoration is even simpler ,by a single click.
Stuffs neat about this program :
-Simple wizards for backing up and restore
-4 backup types
incremental backup to backup only newly changed items,
differential backup which cumulatively backs up all changed items after a normal
mirror backup which creates an exact copy which is accessible by explorer
-Backs up to zip archives so backups are program independent and portable and small
-Supports AES encryption 256 bits so data is highly secured
-Supports zip64 so backups can have larger sizes
-Data can be backed up to servers securely using SFTP
-Powerful version tracking system to filter out file versions
-Backups can be made on CD DVD Blu Ray Disc and USB Sticks and Drives
-Backup of open applications is possible
-Backup plugins for popular applications are available for free so selective data can be be
-Multiple backups can be made
-No of backups can be limited
-Email notifications are given for actions
-Side bar for windows 7
Losing our precious data can be painful, so such softwares are greatly required today. Thanks to Softpedia for this giveaway.

I like that the professional version of Backup4all can create full, incremental and differential backups. This expediates the backup process by only backing up changed files since last backup. There is a 256-bit encryption for sensitive data and built in support for burning to removable media. Overall, a very good backup package to keep your data safe.
