Pros: Being a web developer and as essential part of my job to use and handle lots of important data files of all formats for my work, having a backup utility is a must for me to keep track of my files and keep them safe from any accidents (either it be a data loss because of hardware failure or unintentional delete or virus infection/ cyber breach of my machine) it may happen, and also have them stored.
There are lots of useful features I found in ivy backup that make me pick up to be my number one backup utility, here I could list a few of them :
1- the program is very intuitive, user friendly and easy to use, have very minimal and easy options for navigation and control and anyone can handle it fairly easily even if you are not an advanced user.
2- One of the most important features I have found and that make this program stands out amongst all other competitors, is the ability to backup for certain files that you choose with different options to control, modify or browse your backups list.
3- It has a minimal size and doesn't consume too much of your processor or RAM or bandwidth, so it won't crumble your PC performance or make it freeze or stuck like other heavy programs for backups.
4- Backup and restoring files are very easy and comfortable process with the amazing feature stocked to the program that keep checking the integrity of your data during both processes to make sure all your files are clean and intact.

Overall: Being a web developer and as essential part of my job to use and handle lots of important data files of all formats for my work, having a backup utility is a must for me to keep track of my files and keep them safe from any accidents (either it be a data loss because of hardware failure or unintentional delete or virus infection/ cyber breach of my machine) it may happen, and also have them stored on a cloud to have them at my fingertips to download and use anywhere and anytime.

I have been using lots of different backup solutions before and I had found the ivy backup by chance as part of promotional offer, but since I have used it I could never turn back, and it's the only solution to back up the important files that I totally depend on now.

IvyBackup is a small, yet reliable and packs enough features to handle all your backup needs.

Thank you for your feedback Malik. Please download the latest version of IvyBackup which includes support for AES 256-Bit encryption.

Extremely frustrating! It just doesn't do what it should - so I'm getting rid of it.

Pros: The description of what it should do is enticing. As a Backup system, it ought to be reasonably straightforward.

Cons: Sadly, for me it doesn't do what it sets out to do!
I wanted to Backup my m.2 C:\ drive. In the first instance, it threw that New Job out because it couldn't gain access to a couple of seemingly random folders. Attempting to correct this by setting up Filters to prevent those specific Folders from being copied, the program appears not to take any notice, and continues to repeat the same message! Worse still if you go back in and try to fix the filter, it duplicates some of those entries! But it still won't bypass the nominated Folders
It won't just copy what it can, but refuses to run the job at all - even when told to ignore those particular folders!
Also, the Help file for the program doesn't seem to correspond with the current version of the software, and the simplest "How to get started" is misleading (to me, anyway!)

Multi-tasking backup software suite.

Pros: The ability to incrementally do smart iterative backups, and verify them to know if they are valid or corrupted.

Cons: The antiquated GUI interface that would be better suited to Windows 98, rather than Windows 10. They need to make it more of a UWP app that can run json code base.

Overall: A way to sync files to keep them backed-up across the devices in your organization.
