Customer Reviews

Nice features, good value

I have been successfully using Remote Backup Magic, for several months, as "offsite" storage for critical files. Remote Backup Magic encrypts and compresses the files to remote servers (in my case, my hosted website, which I have storage that I do not use). It is a good, non-provider specific (e.g. Mozy, Carbonite) solution for "offsite" backup.

A nice enhancement would be a new backup option (in addition to "Full", "Incremental" and "Full Incremental") which would periodically create a full backup (clearing all existing ones) and then create incremental ones (of only changed files) until the periodic threshold was met (e.g. a full monthly backup and daily incremental ones or full backup and 15 incremental ones).

It backs up files

It backs up my files to our PC server but the auto backup feature doesn't work so I have to do it manually. The reason I bought the software was so it would back up my files automatically, if they fix that feature it would be worth 4 stars. I set it up so it backs up all my files each time which seems to work better but regardless I have to manually hit the backup button each time.


I've only used it once now but it had the features i wanted and did exactly what i asked it to do the first time.
