About GRBackPro

What if you can no longer access your valuable data because of a hard drive problem? GRBackPro is a Windows data backup program that helps protect you from such event. You can define multiple backup sessions: back up a whole disk, a single folder or just a few files. An integrated scheduler will let you start your backup automatically without any intervention, even if your PC is in stand-by, and you can set conditions such as paths available, no user input and CPU loading to fine tuning.

Pros: GRBackPro allows me flexibility in setting the destination path of my backups. I can set it to the time variable I want (e.g. weekdays) and it will create 7 folders (from Monday to Sunday). Setting incremental compressed backup provides me with the past 7 days of backups. I can also do this with "weekly" (4 weeks folders) and "monthly" (12 months folders) destinations. This is something I don't see in other backup solutions.

Cons: Maybe the interface of v8 is a bit outdated. I read that the new version 9 has its interface improved. Also, when the PC is first restarted, the network mapped drive is at first not connected. GRBackPro refuses to start its backup and I have to go into file explorer and double-click on the mapped drive to get the PC to recognize the drive. Then it works fine. If GRBackPro can do the initialization of mapped or network drive before backing up, then it will be awesome.

Overall: This is a very reliable software. Once everything is set up, it works according to the schedule set. It's a "set and forget" kind of experience.

To solve the mapped drive issue we suggest to directly use the UNC name (//Server/SharedFolder) instead of the mapped drive letter. This is reliable and always works.

Pros: Relatively simple to set up but once set up it has usually worked flawlessly. I can also save all files backed up in uncompressed format making it much easier for staff to restore files when need be. Simple drag and drop files from backup folder to new folder. Many back up softwares use propitiatory formats and you can not restore without their software. No a good feeling when company closes doors.

Also am able to backup from one NAS to another NAS winch is huge bonus.

Cons: No real cons. Like all software a bit of a learning curve. Had occasional issues when windows updates occurred but tech support has always been excellent and fast on responding.

Overall: I generate daily, weekly and monthly backups with all monthly backups being archived forever. Have never lost any backups in using this software since 2007.

Pros: It's very easy to use. I like that I can easily assemble Job list of files I want t o backup and give different backup locations. Using monthly backups it's easy to update job locations as well as backup locations. To recover files is very easy, no complicated admin to go through, just use File Explorer to gain access to all your files. It also works well with large numbers of files.

Cons: It could use a user interface makeover. Function is great but it could do with an updated overall design and be scaleable for 4K and up screens.

Overall: Great overall experience for daily backups, monthly backups and I especially use it for assert backups. I have huge libraries of 3D objects and samples audio and GRBackPro makes it easy to back these up.

Pros: Zips all files into individual folders that match the directory structure. This is perfect if you are uploading to say Amazon S3 because (1) the upload size smaller, (2) it keeps the directory structure, (3) because the files are zipped they retain their original dates (which you lose if you upload files directly to S3). Plus you can restore directly from the overall zip file back to the original directory structure.

Cons: A bit tricky to manage the command-line options.

Overall: I use this for at least five different backups each night, plus a big one each week. All setup to run automatically at given times. I've been using GrBakPro for the last 19 years and find it invaluable.

Pros: Comprehensive set of set-up features, fully automatic, easy recovery of data and uses conventional ZIP compression, so archived backup are accessible without the program, if necessary. Many other backup programs use proprietary compression that only the program can recover..

Cons: Learning curve - not a very intuitive set-up, but once learned, simple to use.

Overall: I've been using GRBackup since it first came out - many many years ago, and at least 4 totaled/crashed computers along the way. The backup saved my professional photography business many times - lots of high resolution photos... maybe a million or more over the years.

Pros: GRBack Pro is very easy to handle and when it is installed you know that it is possible to trust that there is a backup. It has happened that my hard drive has not been able to read from, but then it is only to produce the backup, so the security is what I want to highlight the most.

Cons: It is not possible to find anything negative about GRBack

Overall: I run an accounting firm and I am in great need of being able to show great security on the data side for customers, branch organization and the tax office, which I have been able to do on several occasions.

Pros: easy to use with all the features one needs

Cons: sometimes special program options are likely hard to find

Overall: I tried many backup software like Acronis, EaseUS or Paragon but GRBackup is the best of all. It is easy to use, has all the features you need and builds simple zip-files that can be browsed outside the program. I use GRBackup since over ten years and would never miss it. Recommended it to many of my collegues. And, by the way, it´s not so expensive as you might think and worth every cent.

GRBackPro has so many options that sometime is difficult to districate all that features. We have added the Simple mode to reduce the available options. In this mode some less frequently used options are hidden. This should reduce the pain on the first usage. However I think that professional users and administrators want to see ALL options and thus are welcome to enable the Adv. Mode. This is specially true for the Server edition.

Pros: I like most that I can run GRBackPro as a service, so I can backup my and my family's accounts even when I am not logged in.

And I have absolute control of what and how to backup.

Overall: I am an IT professional and did require a solution for my family pc at home, which was able to fullfill my needs.

And i never had issues.

The title says it all, Ihave been in the IT field since 1965 and have struggled through many system crashes. Getting in the habit of backing up my data so that I can recover files has saved me countless hours/days of work to re-construct a file system. I provide free support to the people in our small town of 3300 people and recommend to everyone to backup - backup - backup.
