Backup4all 8 Review and Giveaway

[Image: Rj1K99o.png]

What if you woke up one day to find that you lost precious photos of dear ones? How about losing your business documents, research and other important data? The answer is simple: Backup.

Backing-up is a crucial process that everyone should do in order to have a fail-safe, for when the inevitable happens. The principle is to make copies of particular data in order to use those copies for restoring the information if a failure occurs (a data loss event due to deletion, corruption, theft, viruses, etc.)

You can perform the backup manually by copying the data to a different location or automatically using a backup program. Backup4all is a feature-rich backup software that automatically protects your valuable data from total or partial loss. Its intuitive interface makes it easy to use for beginners, but also includes advanced features for power users.

Supported languages:

Backup4all has its interface translated in several languages. This helps you use Backup4all as efficiently as possible, especially if English is not your native language.

In ALL versions:


You can load plugins for backing up or restoring specific programs’ settings or other custom data (like game saves, email data, etc.).


Backup4all employs a unique system that decides automatically what backup type to use in order to save the most file versions (within the same allotted storage space) on your destination and improve the backup speed.


Backup4all creates standard ZIP files. This format is compatible with any zip utility currently available on the market. Unlike other backup programs, for zip files greater than 2 GB, Backup4all uses ZIP64 technology. This allows unlimited ZIP file size and also lets you encrypt your data using AES encryption (256-bits).


Backup4all shows messages when certain actions occur (i.e. when finishing a backup).


Powerful file and folder filtering engine with lots of options to filter by attribute, size, date, name and type).


Backup4all can now check for updates either manually or automatically at a scheduled date. This allows you to better stay in touch with the latest development of Backup4all.


Backup4all includes a step-by-step wizard with instructions to create a new backup job by selecting Where, What, How and When to backup.


Backup4all stores a summary snapshot of the file and folder information into a backup catalog file (“.bkc”) each time a backup runs.


Backup4all uses the Volume Shadow Copy service that allows you to back up local open files from NTFS partitions. Now you can back up your emails and settings without closing Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express or other email clients.


A command line version of this backup application is available too and it will allow you run different operations using parameters. 


The operations performed by Backup4all are logged. This allows you to see the status of performed operations (backup/test/cleanup/restore). A backup job/group History view is available too 


The application tests the backups (using CRC32). This ensures that the files have been backed up properly and the backup is safe. 

Features in the Pro version only:

Cloud Backup:

Back-up your data in the cloud to Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, Dropbox, Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure, BOX, Hidrive, Hubic, Google Cloud Storage and over 36 Amazon S3 Compatible cloud destinations (i.e. Backblaze, Cisco, Tiscali, Verizon). This way you benefit from the most powerful infrastructures for protecting your data online, while using the backup program you’re used to.


Backup4all can back-up using an incremental backup type. Incremental backup provides a faster method of backing up data than running full backups. During an incremental backup, only files changed since the most recent backup are included. Its advantage is that it takes the least time to complete.


Block-level backup speeds up the backup process of large files as it only back-up the modified blocks of data instead of the entire file. As an example, if you have a backup job for a large Outlook profile, whenever you receive a new email Backup4all knows to back-up only the bits of data that modified rather than the whole PST.


Backup4all offers four backup types to choose from: full backup, differential backup, incremental backup and mirror backup. By default it uses a smart backup option to automatically chose which backup type to execute for optimizing backup speed and keep the most file versions possible without exceeding the allotted storage space.


You can configure Backup4all to send custom emails after a backup finished, with success, error and warning notifications (via SMTP or Gmail). Additional options allow you to attach the backup log file and send the email to several addresses. Backup4all also displays notifications in the Messages section when certain actions occur (i.e. when finishing a backup).


You can easily set up a powerful scheduler using predefined (or custom) scheduling configurations to make unattended backups. This way you set the backup and forget about it. Backups can also be scheduled to run when the computer shuts down. You can also schedule restore operations.


You can protect your ZIP files by setting a password for each backup job. Besides normal password protection, Backup4all also supports 128-bit, 192-bit and 256-bit AES encryption. These numbers reflect the encryption key size used to encrypt the data – a higher key strength provides stronger encryption. Currently the 256-bit AES encryption is considered military-grade.


Backup4all offers an option to lock its interface so that when it starts you will need to provide a password in order to unlock it and be able to make changes to its settings. This way sensitive information is protected (i.e. server/email passwords).


You can store the backup Locally on the internal HDD, on another computer in the same LAN, on media such as CD/DVD, on external or removable drives and online to FTP/SFTP/Cloud

Types of backup supported by the program:

Backup4all performs all four backup types: full backup, differential backup, incremental backup and mirror backup. It also employs an unique type (smart backup) that will decide when to use full, differential or incremental automatically. It also backs up blocks of data (true incremental backups) which means that for large files it will only back-up the small parts that changed in it since the last backup.
