Failed to do the job

It failed to back up gmail. Specifically, it backed up everything to sometime in 2013 and then omitted every more recent email from the backup. The cause was probably that the the app took so long that I needed to shut off the computer to transport it while it was still in 2013. When I restarted the computer and ran the app to finish the job, it declared that it was finished, and even put a little green “checkmark” on the icon. But it was missing everything from 2014.

I don’t want to have to restart it from scratch, only to deal with the same issue down the road.

Works great! Life saver!!

I was devastated when my emails went missing from all of my Gmail folders. I immediately went searching for an email back up and BackUp Gmail has been working great! It definitely brings me peace of mind. Davide is also very prompt and supportive to any needs or questions - Thanks Davide!

Works well

The application works well but I’m trying to find out if it backs up the sent folder…. Can’t find any reference to backing up sent items in either the FAQ or application itself.
