If you are a power user then FastCopy is what you need.

As others have said - it is mature and that's what matters. A bit over-engineered here and there and the UI is sort of "stuck in the 90s", but it works well.

Good workhorse. Can use a tweak here and there in my opinion, but it is mature and well supported and that's what matters.

Rock solid. A powerhouse. Lively forum, great support. Together with Mozy you've got it made in the shade for backups on and off site.

... so to speak "write a review": a single word would probably describe it: Excellent (well laid out, intuitive and does what's supposed to)

Super program. This belongs on the hard drive of any sync freak. I use it along with Beyond Compare (www.scootersoftware.com) and Superflexible (www.superflexible.com), plus... Robocopy. For incredibly flexible syncing Superflexible is the business. For visual verification and inspection BC is the cat's miaow. For routine use and the ability to share a free version with friends who haven't learn to sync yet SyncBackSE is a good way to go.

A revamp of the sync creation process is all this program needs. Other than that, I cant say enough good things about it. Very powerful!

SyncBackSE is a very well-made backup and synchronization solution. The user interface and design is surprisingly pleasant and efficient, while the software itself maintains easy to use (once you get the hang of it) even while offering an unending amount of tweaks for advanced users. Coming from insanely overkill disk-imaging offerings, moving on to messy manual backups then to Microsoft's SyncToy, SyncBack is a breath of fresh air that I've found perfect for my needs. Take the time to set it up perfectly, then enjoy quick, über-customized backups in a couple of clicks. Very helpful, comprehensive documentation and support forums as well! Highly recommended.

Only complain is that it can't handle files with Unicode characters. At least the free version doesn't.

I love this program and use it daily. However, I do wish they would simplify the process of creating a sync because some of the options are hard to understand or not very friendly as to what you are achieving by selecting it. Other than that, top notch.

The best backup program on Windows. Hands down.

There is no better solution to backup files on Windows. You won't believe how customizeable, feature-packed, yet beautifully written this program is.

Everything a program should be. I raise my glass to you, SyncBackSE!

NOTE: I'd like to update my previous 4 star rating below with this one.

It turns out you CAN change the directory of the settings. See this thread:

ALSO, see this thread for COMPLETE directions on making Syncback portable

I also recommend checking out the free version. If you want just backups it will do the job nicely. I use it to backup files from my laptop to a mass USB storage device on my server.

I have also installed the free version on the server itself to replicate/synchronize the USB drive to another USB drive. (I would hate to lose someone's wedding photos!!!)

The BEST way to backup all of your files on Windows - swiftly, painlessly, and reliably.

Hands down the best!

The program lost 1 star because it saves all settings and profiles to

C:\Documents and Settings\**user**\Local Settings\Application Data

Now, the program lets you choose where to put the profiles, but the settings remain in the aforementioned directory.

I hope the author includes an option to put *ALL* settings inside of the \SyncBack install dir. Some of us hate files elsewhere in the system and it makes backing up a pain in the butt!
