Have you personally used this product?
Or just find it on your travels and thought you would share it with the rest of us?

If you have tried it, how does it weigh up to other free products that do a similar job? Like Drive Image XML?

It's a different product to Drive Image XML, he's talking about a backup program rather than a drive imaging program.

I agree though, it does seem like a developer's plug rather than an endorsed recommendation.

not used it yet, come across it while looking for something, thought tech might like it because you can backup your emails, and backup your windows registry, going to give a test later, but looks good for a solution to our customers to backup there data.

It seems to be rated quite highly and from the reviews and screenshots here it looks like a program that'll be easy to use for the average domestic user.



P.S. If anyone's looking for freeware & shareware tools & utilities it's well worth checking out www.Snapfiles.com they screen all software for malware/adware and the reviews (both editorial & user) are generally concise and informative.

I recommend Comodo Backup. I've used it and it's pretty good. It was harder for me to find a reason not to use it.

http://backup.comodo.com/

Comodo Backup enables you to automatically backup your important files and folders to a local drive, FTP location or your CD/DVD burner. The program offers 3 different backup methods, including a simple copy or move approach as well as folder synchronization. The built-in scheduler can run as a Windows service and allows you to run your backups automatically, even if you are not logged in. Other features include support for backup compression (2gb zip file limit), macro commands to construct backup paths, optional email notifications on completed backup, password protection, integrated DVDCD burning and more.


Rated very good on snapfiles.com

Comodo is very good, but GFI does look like it'll be easier to understand for a computer novice so it might be a better choice to recommend to domestic customers.
