In The Spotlight: SyncBackSE

by Michael E. Callahan aka Dr. File Finder


Don't you just KNOW that you should be doing a better job of backing upyour data? That's why you're reading this, right?

SyncBaceSE at a glance:

SyncBackSE, from 2BrightSparks, is a data backup and computersynchronization system that is easy-to-use for those just wanting basicbackup, yet has all the features needed by demanding users and companiesthat want to back up hundreds of workstations. You don't have to be atechie to protect your photos and business documents, but if you are,you'll find all you need here.

People say that one of the main reasons for not backing up their data isthat they can't quite figure out what needs to be done, let alone how todo it. SyncBackSE's backup tutorial explains what you should considerdoing. Then the program itself guides you through setting upProfiles -- instructions of what is to be backed up, how, and to where.You may have several profiles for different kinds of data, or differentsituations. Virtually all the instructions are selectable by easyclicks, and the context-sensitive help explains the options in layman'slanguage.

Another reason for not protecting yourself is more basic. "Ummmm´┐Ż Iforget to do it regularly." Never mind SyncBackSE lets you schedule eachprofile to run automatically - anywhere from monthly to every fewminutes. Just set it and forget it. Afraid that something might go wrongand you won't even know? Then have SyncBackSE send you an emaildetailing the reasons if there's ever a problem with a backup run.

Compression to save disk space and bandwidth, encryption to hide yourdata from prying eyes, backing up of open files so you don't have toshut down your email to back it up, send backup data over the internetto a remote server. And so much more my fingers will get numb trying tolist them.

The best bet is for you to see for yourself what SyncBackSE can do foryou. Check out their web site for description of key features. Thendownload the 30-day free trial, with unrestricted functionality. Buy itwhen you're sure it does the job for you. And know that it fits yourbudget better than most such products with lesser capabilities.

But 2BrightSparks knows it isn't just about good software. We all mightneed friendly guidance at some point. That's why they provide a host ofsupport services to make sure you get the best use of the software: aFAQ, an active User Forum, white papers on backup and multi-computersynchronization, and a professional "support ticket" system that getsyou answers from technical specialists quickly. All included in theprice. Neat.

The price is a modest $30.00(US) for a single copy. Multiple copies, andeven an Enterprise License, drive down the price with increasing volume.If you're an educational or non-profit organization, you'll get an evenbetter deal.
