Great for backing up app data and photos - I've been using this to backup my Yummuy Soup! recipe database and photos. It's configured to watch my recipe database files and if there are any changes it puts one copy on my local USB backup drive, and emails another copy to my GMail account. I have it running at login and checking for changes once per day, and it's working great so far. The FTP backup works but I need to find an FTP provider with better prices for space before I use it more. I'm sure I'll use it for other important files too. Easy to use, so I recommend it!

Review by Ungewissheit

An exception of class NilObjectException was not handled. The application must shut down - I demand my money back. This is a hoax, not the application! All what I needed, it's back up a home folder on the ftp server. For this task, the application can not handle.

Review by jlozes

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).

Review by Perfect….. Almost

Good idea and great value - It would be perfect, if it worked. It has crashed atleast 6 times today and I can't even complete the first backup. Buy something better.

Review by makedesigns

SIMPLY AWFUL. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME. - I actually think the open connection hacked my website. I'm a web developer and all 10 of my websites got hacked over the weekend I initiated the first backup. DON'T BUY. Save yourself the headache of restoring your website. Besides the fact that if you want to risk it, it crashes constantly.

Review by Murph080

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.
